This “Tiny Treasures Collage” wall hanging is super simple, fun, and easy for kids of all ages. An extra little gift with this project is that it can be made in any theme or color scheme you like, and it becomes a perfect frugal home décor project for mom! But the best part of all is that you can make up this “Tiny Treasures Collage” wall hanging by using up bits and pieces, odds and ends, and scraps and snippets of whatever you have on hand in your craft or sewing stash.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the arrival of spring! So pull out all your little scraps of cardboard or cardstock, a few paints, markers, stickers, and glue and you are ready to make your own “Tiny Treasures Collage” wall hanging.

Even though it is rather cloudy this morning, I can just feel springtime in the air! It smells different, it feels different, and it even sounds different than it did just last week. When I went outside this morning, I could hear the birds singing and I could smell the damp earth just waiting for the sunshine to come out and play. We are looking forward to gardening this summer, which is something that we have not been able to do for the past couple of years. And when it is raining, we are going to be working on a few sewing projects and our scrapbooks. On Saturday we got all signed up for 4H and the girls are both going to be doing flowers, scrapbooking, and photography. We are going to get started early this year!
Today I wanted to share with you a fun project that I've posted before, but for those of you who haven't seen my Teacup Pincushions, I'm offering the ebook tutorial again, just in case you might want to make one of these sweet little things for a springtime gift, a gift for Grandma or Mom for Easter or for Mother's Day. A Teacup Pincushion would also be beautiful sitting on YOUR sewing cabinet! Whenever I go out on my thrift shopping expeditions, I am always looking for vintage teacups and saucers just so that I can make another pincushion. You just might already have a pretty teacup and saucer around your house, maybe one that came from Grandma or Aunt Edith, and now you can take that tiny treasure and make something that is not only beautiful but practical, too.
I'll be posting the entire eBook tutorial on the Ruby for Women blog and in the April issue of the Ruby for Women ezine, so you can either leave me a comment here and I'll email it to you, or you can come on over and visit me at Ruby for Women . . . . . and you might even want to join our community where we are creating and sharing more and more resources for women every day!
