I don't know about you, but as much as I love snow...enough is enough. I long for colour and flowers, I don't want wet trouser legs up to my knees whenever I go out. So there...I made my own little spring. All it took was wool, paper balls, a crochet hook and twigs.
Easy peasy. Best of all - they will never fade.
P.S.: Crochet around a paper ball, try to keep track of the hole in the ball while you are working (that's where you insert the stem). Bind off, hide the end of your thread, put a dot of glue on the end of your twig, stick it in the ball - and you are done!
