Summer Projects – DIY Roundup

There is still some time to squeeze in a few more summer DIY projects and we have chosen some of our favorites.  Keep reading to pick out your favorites and get a few more projects complete before the kids go back to school, or if they already have, pick your favorites to fill the day with now that you have a lot of extra time to do what you want to during the day!

Outdoor Projects:

1.)    DIY A-Frame Tent via Cakies – This is a great DIY project to add a little fun to the backyard and some shade from the sun.  The kids can even make it into their own little backyard clubhouse for what’s left of summer.  The best part is this project will be useful all through fall so you will have many more months of fun with this.

2.)    Potted Garden Wall via Gingerly Made – This is a great and easy way to add a little more color and plant life to your backyard.  This is also a great way to dress up older wood fences without completely replacing them.

3.)    DIY Succulent Table via Far Out Flora – We have been in love with succulents this summer and are always looking for new fantastic ways to display them.  Check out a great DIY on how to build this table with old crates and leftover wood.

4.)    Rope-Wrapped Pots via House by Hoff – We love these planters.  This is a simple DIY that anyone can do and customize to work with the color scheme you already have going.  These are great additions to your outdoor space, but could also be used indoors as well.

5.)    Fruit Welcome Mat via The House that Lars Built – Nothing says summer like bright colors and fresh fruit.  Combine these two things into a great way to welcome guests into your home.

Decorative Projects:

6.)    Summer Bloom Wreath via Cheerios & Lattes – Once you have a colorful welcome mat at your door you will want to add a great summer wreath.  We love the unique take on the Summer Wreath that Cheerios & Lattes had by using moss.

7.)    Dip-Dyed Baskets via Martha Stewart – Leave it to Martha Stewart to give us a super easy way to update some baskets.  These will look great in any setting.  It is a great way to take something a little more rustic and give it a modern twist.

8.)    DIY Watermelon Serving Tray via Oh So Beautiful Paper – Other than succulents our other summer obsession is watermelon.  I used to have an entire watermelon outfit when I was a small child, the dress was adorable.  It seems the love of watermelons stuck and we have to include this DIY.  I can’t think of a cuter tray to serve your summer drinks on than this.  I will definitely be DIYing this tray before summer is over!

Misc. Summer Projects:

9.)    The Sunbathing Companion via Very Dark Horse – This is a great bag to take to the beach or the pool.  Everything you need is in one place and there are even extra pockets for sunscreen, magazines, sunglasses and anything else you may need.  It is the perfect tote for those hot summer days.

10.) No Sew Colored Pencil Roll via Small Friendly – This we love for so many reasons.  The versatility is one.  It can be used for colored pencils, regular pencils, pens, markers or crayons (with a little modification).  This is the perfect project for anyone that wants to take their art supplies with them on vacation this summer.  It is also a great way for the kids to tote their pencils back and forth to school.
