SUMMER DIY PROJECTS
Summer calls for gloriously long days that are ideal for playing outdoor games, firing up the grill and trying out some new recipes for delicious bbq party food and summer desserts, and, naturally, digging into the craft bin and creating some pretty seasonal projects. Because one of the best ways to welcome warmer weather with open arms, and an ideal way to spend quality times with the little ones in your life, is crafting. Rather than heading to the store (or simply clicking "add to cart" in your favorite online shop) for festive fixtures, take matters into your own hands and whip up any of these summer DIY crafts—all of which perfectly embody the best of the warm weather months. Think everything from crafts that will instantly brighten your home to string light ideas for a summer-ready backyard. Each idea is just as pretty and affordable as the next, so it'll be hard to figure out which ones to start with first (good thing you have three whole months!). Turn on your favorite classic summer country song, grab a refreshing summer cocktail, and start tackling any of these charming and easy summer DIYs.
