Spring crafts :: beautiful daffodil bunting

Here’s one of my all-time favourite spring crafts – daffodil bunting. After the dark winter months when there’s been very little growing in our garden it’s always such a joy to see the bright green stems of daffodils peeping up. This spring craft lets you bring that happiness inside and wrap it right around the wall of your home! Made from recycled materials, it’s a lovely eco-craft too.
