April: Colorful Eggs

Cut adhesive mailing labels into straight and wavy strips using crafting scissors. Stick dot stickers (available at office supply stores) and the strips onto ceramic eggs—you'll need at least four dozen eggs. Spray-paint one side of the eggs, and let dry. Flip the eggs over and spray-paint the other side. Let dry, then peel off the stickers and hot-glue the eggs to a 14-inch foam wreath. Use hot glue and straight pins to fasten two pieces of grosgrain ribbon to the back of the wreath for hanging.

Materials: Eggs: Dyeable ceramic eggs, $16 for a set of 12, eggnots.com; Paint: Montana Gold Acrylic spray paint in white lilac, viola, sweet dream, and polar blue, $8, dickblick.com; Wreath: 14" extruded foam wreath, $5, hobbylobby.com; Ribbon: For similar styles, try jkmribbon.com.

May: Floating Butterflies

Coil raffia-covered wire into a 16-inch circle. Re-coil twice to form the wreath. Add a loop of wire at the top for hanging. Use a butterfly paper punch to create about 60 butterflies from patterned scrapbook paper. Cut thin metal wire into 20 four-inch pieces. Glue one end of each wire to the center of a butterfly, then glue another butterfly on top of it. Wrap the other end of the wire around the wreath. Fold the remaining butterflies in half and glue their creases to the wreath.

Materials: Raffia-covered wire: $4.50 per roll, Michaels stores; Paper punch: EK Paper Shapers large butterfly punch, $12.50, createforless.com; Paper: For similar styles, try scrapbook.com; Metal wire: Bead Landing 24-gauge; Stringing wire, $3.50, Michaels stores

June: Garden Style

Make a bouquet of artificial flowers, and secure with a piece of wire. Use another piece of wire to attach the bouquet to the hose over the zip tie. If necessary, hot-glue the ends of the hose to the coil to keep them in place. Fill a small metal pot with floral foam, and push in the flower stems. Hot-glue the pot to the hose.

Materials: Hose: Gilmour 25' Flexogen hose, $17, amazon.com; Flowers: For similar styles, try Michaels stores; Pot: Mini metal pail bucket in yellow, $4, jampaper.com
