My top 10 St David's Day crafts.

For those of you that don't know St David is the patron Saint of Wales and St David's day is on the 1st of March. We live very close to the Welsh boarder and you know me I will take any excuse to craft.
Here is a round up of some of the best St David's day crafts I've seen. This will surely inspire you to find a little Welsh in you somewhere and enjoy the holiday.
1. You can't go far wrong with making something to eat when celebrating a Saints day. So why not take a look at zahlicious for a great recipe for Welsh cakes and beautiful food photographs as well.

2. If your in the mood for something more substantial to eat you could try Bara Brith. The recipe varies slightly depending on who you ask and everyone will tell you that theirs is the right way to make it. But you can't go far wrong with the nurture store's recipe.

3. Whilst your looking at the nurture store, have a look at their daffodil bunting. Such a great take on bunting and a great pop of colour.
