Watercolor Silk Ribbon Wands Tutorial

Spring has finally arrived! The sun is shining and the birds are singing, so I hope it's here to stay! I watercolored some May Arts white silk ribbon and made some fluttery, shimmery rainbow wands to celebrate the season. Visit the May Arts blog for the tutorial or click here for a printable PDF.

I tucked one of the watercolor ribbon wands into a "Happy Spring" gift package for my daughter. I tied on some curly ribbons and a watercolored shipping tag with a message on the back and filled it with some fun reminders of our springtime traditions.

On the first warmish day, we always blow bubbles, so I had to include a bottle of those. {I hope I'm never too old to blow bubbles!} Sidewalk chalk and mini M&Ms are other favorite treats.

I tucked in a fun notebook with a cover to color in and some 80s glam Sharpies as a grown up nod to coloring book days! Happy spring everyone!
