Once you've uploaded your image, you can format it to print to any size you would like, using several pieces of letter sized paper.

Collage art is the basis of some of the most interesting spring craft ideas. You can use collage art for the following projects:
- Frame a collage to create attractive artwork for your home
- Laminate it to use as a placemat
- Make a bookmark by punching a hole in top of your collage and adding a ribbon tassel
- Turn it into customized collage jewelry
In addition to being fun to make, collage art also provides a great way to recycle old greeting cards, magazines, newspapers, and wrapping paper or get rid of leftover stickers and patterned paper scraps from your previous craft projects.
To make a collage, cut out words and images that represent your idea of spring. For example:
- Fluffy clouds
- Baby animals
- Easter eggs
- Flying kites
- Children playing outside
Kites are great spring craft ideas, since flying a kite is one of the most popular springtime activities. To learn more about making your own kite, check out the following links:

A wreath provides an easy way to brighten up your home décor in anticipation of spring. While most store-bought wreaths are $40-$50, you can make your own beautiful spring wreath for less than $10.
To make a spring wreath, you'll need some basic supplies like a grapevine or straw wreath base, hot glue, wire cutters, assorted silk flowers, and pretty coordinating ribbon. These supplies are readily available at large craft supply stores like Hobby Lobby or Michaels Crafts. To save even more money, you can take apart wreaths purchased from garage sales or thrift stores.
