After a (sometimes) long winter, it can be great to do some spring cleaning and freshen up your home with bright colors and floral patterns.

This table runner from Make It Do is a great project for beginners, and can be made with whatever leftover (preferably spring-themed) scraps you have laying around. You could also make these sized as placemats. Instructions here.
