March Crafts For Adults

Birdhouse Craft

We all adore birds for their cuteness and lovely melodies. They are like worldwide famous animals that are usually kept as house pets all around. However, some of them are suffering as homeless creatures mainly because of deforestation which results in the destruction of their nests which can eventually lead to extinction but we can play our part in helping them by constructing birdhouses while enjoying the process at the same time.

This March craft for adults might seem hard but once you start making and working on this project based on the steps provided by this article, you will find it very easy. This will also increase your engineering and map solving skills. Let’s begin the work!

First, you would require the items for the construction. You will need few pieces of the wood sheet for the base of the house. Some wood sheets are required to build up the walls and roof of the birdhouse. Firstly, cut two squares out of the wooden sheet of the same size as the sidewalls of the trees house. Now take two more wooden pieces to cut the front and back of the house.

Give a shape of reverse V from the top. Make two or one small holes on the front wall of the sheet. Now join all four parts with the base to give it the shape of the house walls. Now add a canopy roof and fit it over the walls. Now the overall look of the house is ready.

You can add a stand at the back to hang it on the tree. You can also use different color paints of your choice to make it more attractive.  

Painted Pots

Painting is just like silent poetry or a luminous language by nature. You can engage in playing with different colors and adding more variety to them to create different shades and blending for textures! Especially when it has to be done on different objects, you fully concentrate for better output and you paint more carefully. This activity will help you in blending while painting and making better combinations.

We all know that plants are very important in our environment. They provide us with oxygen that enables us to survive. Some of us are also heavenly into plant décor in living rooms, bedrooms, or making a simple wall look fancy! If you try this activity, you will end up having beautiful colored potted plants. Even if you place them on your lawn under daylight, they will shine and look spectacular.

To do this craft, you would have to get a pot with some paints of your choice. The paint medium is your choice of how you want the texture to be. We have chosen yellow, orange, red and blue; see all these colors match perfectly! Now color the pot with the lightest paint on the top.

You will see the trend goes like lightest on the top and darkest going down the pot. This is a good trick to create better blending. Now the second color we used is orange and you will have to blend it with yellow to make it more dimensional. Used red then blue after this and you will soon have a colorfully painted pot.

Transfer some soil from your garden into the pot and sow a seed or carefully unlash a plant and place its roots into the pot. This will complete your painted pot décor!

March Crafts For Kindergarten

Flowers Craft

It is said that flowers are the music of the ground from earth’s lips spoken without sound. It is a very vital part of greenery that due to its alluring appearance and its beautifully hypnotizing fragrance. It pulls tourists and catches our sight with the eye-catching colors, shapes, and varieties. There are many kinds like the brightly colored and showy tulips, the pure white jasmine, and the sun-like sunflowers out of which the erect paradisiacal roses are the most popular ones.

Some floating flowers live on water like water lily which symbolizes peace and pleasure. For this craft, you would require different colors of paper to make the flowers. The items you require are two pink-colored sheets or any color of your choice for the petals., a yellow-colored sheet for the middle circle of the flower, a green-colored sheet for the stem, leaves, and grass, white-colored sheet for the base of the flower where it will be pasted.

Now let’s begin the steps. From the pink-colored sheet, cut a rectangle that will be the frame of the picture. Also cut a rectangle from the white sheet, but it should be smaller in size than the pink one. Now apply glue on the white sheet and proportionally paste it on the pink sheet in a way that it looks like the white sheet has a pink frame.

Next, from the second pink-colored sheet (or any color you chose), cut 8 long strips. Take both the ends of each stripe and glue them together but don’t flatten the strip in the middle. Now do the same with all the 8 strips and make them in a flower shape like shown in the illustration and glue them together. Now glue the flower petals on the prepared base (white paper with a pink frame) in the middle of the paper but make sure you only apply glue in the middle. Don’t touch the petals. Cut a yellow circle and glue it in the middle of the flower.

Now cut a strip from green paper as the stem and also leaves of the same size. Keep them until used. Also cut a small rectangle of the length of the bottom side of the white sheet. Cut small lines on the top of the green rectangle and roll and curl them.

Paste the stem on the paper such that it is emerging from the flower sown the sheet. Paste the leaves carefully and neatly and also glue the curly grass at the bottom. In this way, you have completed another March craft that you will love!

Popsicle Sticks Butterfly Crafts

Butterflies are so beautiful! They are lovely insects with amazing color combinations and structures. They remind us of March as they begin appearing a lot during the spring season when the flowers bloom and so part of our March craft for kindergarten activities. 

This March craft activity is about making adorable butterflies out of popsicle sticks the items that are required are: a red-colored sheet, a yellow-colored sheet, a white-colored sheet, purple colored sheet for the antennae, a popsicle stick, a golden glitter sheet, and a black and yellow marker.

To begin, you must prepare all the shapes that you need and cut them. For the body, cut an oval shape with a round bottom on a white sheet. Cut a circle that can fit the size of the oval body. Now cut the butterfly wings: four red ones, four smaller yellow ones, and four even smaller ones which are made out of gold glitter sheet.

Paste the golden ones on the yellow and the yellow on the red to complete the wings. Draw the face of the butterfly on the white circle. Make cute eyes and a smile. Also, make the butterfly details on the body as round lines with a yellow marker.

Now paste the wings on the popsicle stick shown in the illustration. Stick the head on the body and paste them on the Popsicle stick on the wings. You have almost completed the butterfly, just the antennae left. Make the antennae on the purple-colored sheet-like arcs and duct the shape out.

DIY March Craft

St. Patrick’s Craft 

Saint Patrick day is a holiday and celebration in memory of Saint Patrick’s death who bought Christianity to Ireland. This popular day is annually held on the 17th of March when Saint Patrick died. This day symbolizes the color green where everyone is seen to be wearing green and clover posters are held worldwide. Major things that are dining on this memorable day are Attending parades and drinking Irish beer and Irish whiskey

On this special day, which is part of the spring weather of March, we can all remember this great man and celebrate it to the fullest with the help of crafts that would work pretty well. We can make a mini model of Saint Patrick out of a tissue roll which would help to recycle it at the same time! 

For this March craft, you have to grab an empty tissue roll, green paper, a green foam sheet, a black and pink marker, an orange pipe cleaner, and a white sheet. These are all the items that will result in a beautiful decoration once you put the things together in the steps shared by us!

Firstly, wrap the green sheet around the roll by cutting the sheet the same size as the roll. Glue the green paper around the roll neatly. Begin preparing the ends of the roll. The bottom end will be the shoes and the top will be the top of the hat.

For the shoes, place the roll on the top of the green foam paper and trace a circle. Now on one side of the circle, make the top part of the heart (two bumps) and cut it out like a heart with a round bottom. Glue this on the bottom, matching the circle properly with the bottom of the roll and the bumps you have made will be illustrating shoes.

Next, make a circle out of white paper and cut it. Make two eyes and a smile with a black marker and make two pink circles on the cheeks to show blushing! Glue it a little below the top of the roll so it leaves room for the hat. Now place the top end of the roll-on foam paper and trace it out.

Now, with a compass make a bigger circle around the traced one. Begin cutting around the bigger circle. Cut inside the smaller circle so you can see a cut hole in the circle with green foam paper. Now add glue on the edges of the cut hole and place it just above the face like done in the illustration.

Next cut the orang pipe cleaner into flakes and fluff them out. Apply glue on the edges of the white circle of the face. Begin pasting some orange pieces of the pipe cleaners on the applied glue to make the beard. Next, with the help of a black marker make a vertical line on the bottom of the roll to show that the pants separate.

Also, make a belt with it and a v-shaped neck. With this, we complete this delightful craft that reminds us of Saint Patrick. Make more with the leftovers and decorate your house for this precious day.
