By now you’re probably familiar with the term, self care. And maybe, like many of us who have busy lives, you’ve probably pushed yourself too hard to get things done, take care of your family and bring home a paycheck. Pushing self care off to the side once again. However, as we find ourselves emerging from those winter blues that left us unengaged, overwhelmed and completely exhausted, spring provides the perfect opportunity to turn things around by practicing a number of self care ideas.

Keep reading for creative self care ideas to kickstart your spring! Plus learn how to make a decorative DIY spring mason jar to decorate your own or use for spring inspired gifts or wedding favors.

Creative Self Care Ideas for Spring

1. Visit the craft store. (This is probably one of my most favorite self care ideas of all time.) The bright colors and fun new project ideas – not to mention the walk! – are a sure fire way to bring a smile to your face. (Just avoid the floral aisle if you have allergies like I do!) I made this super cute, decorative DIY spring mason jar after a recent visit to A.C. Moore. (Keep reading to learn how to make your own!)

2. Organize your makeup – and throw out the old! Not only does the task of getting rid of old makeup save your skin from potential bacteria that can cause breakouts or worse, the act itself is grounding and therefore therapeutic. Plus it gives you the opportunity to shop for those perfect eyeshadow palettes for the new season.

Upcycle your old makeup for use in art projects, then get creative with a new look for spring. Or learn how to make your own scented unicorn eyeshadow palette!

3. Subscribe to a beauty box for a fun (and useful!) surprise every month. When all you get in the mail is bills, it can make checking your mailbox rather dreary. Treat yourself instead with your favorite beauty and skin care brands by subscribing to a monthly beauty box! For smaller budgets I love my Allure and ipsy beauty box subscriptions! However, when I have the extra money, I am all about the green friendly Love Goodly beauty box that comes every other month!

I love that sometimes I get beauty products that inspire me to be adventurous. Sometimes it’s fun to pretend we’re eight years old again, playing with mommy’s makeup box.

Creative self care ideas to kickstart your spring. Learn a new craft! Stop playing Candy Crush Friends and get away from the television! Learning a new hobby is not only a better use of your time, it also gives you a feeling of accomplishment. Plus you can get some great new ideas for handmade gifts throughout in the year. I love CreativeBug for learning new crafts. You can learn how to make a macrame plant hanger for spring, learn how to sew your own lingerie, learn how to draw & paint with ink or get started with meditative art journaling!

Also be sure to check out Pop Shop America’s Craft In Style subscriptions boxes for monthly all-in-one craft kits. Or browse my fun collection of DIY craft kits for adults.

5. Make a homemade face mask. Not only will this improve the look and feel of your skin, but it’s a luxurious way to take a ten minute time out and do absolutely nothing at all. Choose from one of my many homemade face mask recipes. Or pick your favorite go to!

6. Read a book or magazine. Reading is one of the things that’s hardest for me to take time for. However, it’s something I really do enjoy. So take that hour and spend it reading that book you’ve had sitting on your shelf forever. Read a magazine or brush up on your favorite blogs.

Tip: Take all your favorite books with you on the go to indulge in waiting rooms or at the park with a kindle paperwhite! While paper is my passion, kindle saves my hands from cramping due to fibro. It’s a great accessory for arthritis sufferers too! The new kindle paperwhite is thinner, lighter AND waterproof – so it’s perfect poolside throughout summer.

7. Start planning your garden. Here in Southwestern Virginia we remain under a frost risk well into April. If you’re further north, that means you also have a wait before you can actually plant your veggies in the ground. That doesn’t mean you can’t plan your garden now! Decide which veggies or flowers you want to grow and draw up a mock garden bed. You can even start your seeds indoors to get a head start! Buy a garden planner to get started. Or shop for your favorite gardening supplies!

8. Dance your heart out. It doesn’t matter if you do it in your living room while watching YouTube, in the kitchen while you’re cooking or in a club to your favorite live band. Just dance! Not only will it help you sneak in a bit of cardio time, it’ll also boost those happy endorphins that will further energize you and bring a smile to your face!

This mini decorative DIY spring mason jar is so simple to make. In 10-minutes or less you can create a decorative mini mason jar that’s perfect for decorating your small spaces. You can also use these cute little mason jars for storage to stash trinkets like jewelry and rings. Or utilize them as pretty canisters for your homemade bath salts or Easter treats this spring.

While I used mini hinged jars for this DIY home decor project, you can recreate this DIY idea on storage or mason jars of any size!

First choose your jar. Then choose a small feathered bird to fit the size of the mason jar you’ve chosen. Now pick a collection of paper flowers or 3D stickers that work well with the colors you’ve chosen elsewhere. I used Little Birdie flowers and Little Birdie mini succulents. You’ll also need a strong glue that adheres to the surface of your jar. I used E6000 – my typical go to for bonding everything to everything else.

For the next step, you’ll begin by gluing the flowers onto the lid of your storage or mason jar. (I also glued a mini succulent to the inner bottom of my jar.)

Continue working by gluing more flowers in layers onto the lid of your jar. You’ll want to leave a small space in the center for your bird to nest.

While I used mini hinged jars for this DIY home decor project, you can recreate this DIY you can easily use mason jars of any size.

Finally, glue the bird onto the lid of the jar. Once you’re sure the bird is firmly glued down, set the jar aside to allow the glue to dry and cure. (E6000 requires 48-72 hours to cure.)

Once the glue on your mason jar has cured, your decorative spring mason jar is ready to use!

I loved carving pumpkins a kid. And then, of course, doing it all over again with my son throughout his childhood. At this point in my life, however, I’m kind of over the gooey, slimy pumpkin guts, kids stealing through the night to smash the neighborhood jack-o-lanterns and the eventual downfall of my creations.

Assuming my carved pumpkins survived being demolished by tricksters, watching something you spent a good deal of time on shrink and fade and rot, seems almost self defeating. To be honest, I’m of that mind to simply paint a faux pumpkin that I can reuse every year. If dealing with messy pumpkin guts and seeds aren’t your thing either, then consider these fall pumpkin decorating ideas instead.

Take the time out to do something special for yourself this fall by learning a new craft. This collection of DIY craft kits for adults is just what you need to get started!

Fall is by far my favorite season. Not only do I love the crisp, cooler weather that fall brings, I’m also stoked that I can finally wear something other than shorts and a t-shirt. And while the fall temperatures justify that wonderful wardrobe flip, the cooler air is also perfect for hiking and fall festivals. I love that I can go places and do things and not end up a sweat soaked puddle on the sidewalk.

While I’m not as fond of the shorter days, they do offer the perfect opportunity to stay indoors and get my craft on. It’s also the perfect chance to get my feet wet with a new craft project outside of my area of expertise.

8 DIY Craft Kits for Adults to Try This Fall. Take the time out to do something special for yourself this fall by learning a new craft. This collection of DIY craft kits for adults is just what you need to get started!

My friend, Hillary, who is an artist, supplies ample opportunities to do just that. She recently revived her event nights, Wine & Art Wednesdays. I’ve learned needle felting as well as monoprinting in her previous classes that I attended. While my friend, Bambi, learned various encaustic painting techniques.

This fall she’ll be offering classes on Wednesday nights to learn how to paint sun catcher mandalas, craft felted pumpkins and design winter terrariums. While her expanded Saturday courses include learning how to make needle felted wall hangings and photo transfer painting. So I’m super excited to learn some new arts and crafts techniques that I may not have otherwise tried on my own.

Hosting your own pumpkin paint night is a snap. I simply provided boxed wines, snacks, paints and craft supplies while my guests brought their own paper mache pumpkins. If you don’t already have an arsenal of craft supplies on hand, you could also request that each guest bring a small container of paint and/or their own brushes in addition to the pumpkin of their choice. A pumpkin paint night is also a great idea as an alternate adult or teen Halloween party!

Once dried, use a foam brush to randomly apply Mod Podge to a front section of the pumpkin. Then sprinkle blue and green glitter onto the wet Mod Podge.

DIY Painted Pumpkins for Fall! Rather than fuss with the mess of carving Jack O' Lanterns that don't last past Halloween, this year I decided to create my own DIY painted pumpkins! I even hosted a pumpkin paint night for me and my friends. I thought everyone came up with some really fantastic ideas for painting their pumpkins. And not only are these DIY painted pumpkins perfect for Halloween, but they can also be brought indoors for a seasonal fall table centerpiece! #pumpkins #diy #fall #halloween

Once the Mod Podge dries, use a strong craft glue – I used E6000 craft adhesive – to glue a scrapbook chipboard phrase of your choice onto and across the front of the pumpkin.

Next, paint the stem of your pumpkin green. Then, while the paint is still wet, gently blow blue glitter into the wet paint on the pumpkin stem. Once dry, finish your pumpkin with 2-3 coats as desired of perfectly pink Krylon glitter shimmer spray.

Finally tie teal and green ribbons onto your painted pumpkin’s stem. I used long pieces of ribbon and tied the two ribbons together into a bow twice. Then I tied the leftover long ribbon ends into a bow again but this time I tied the teal and green ribbons into bows separately.
