Making the Most of National Craft Month

By mml pr intern Jenna Hart



Happy National Craft Month! Not only are arts and crafts a fun way to entertain ourselves, a way to bond with others and a trendy hack to save money, but they are also a therapeutic exercise that we can definitely jump on board with! Below are some amazing craft projects from our favorite blogs and a few Seedling kits that will kick-start your creative juices in no time.



Lauren Conrad “Make Your Own Flower Crown”


It’s almost festival season! Instead of fading into the background with a store-bought flower crown to go with your perfect Coachella outfit, you can craft your very own! This easy craft is a sure way to stand out in the crowd—use real flowers to have the added bonus of smelling fresh while looking like a flowery goddess.
