DIY Suncatchers

These are so lovely and can brighten up any window in your home. Want to make the most of the beautiful sun rays shining in? You may definitely want to check out this summer-inspired crafting project.

With this project you only need a small handful of supplies! A muffin tin/baking tray, pony beads, and an oven!

Keep in mind that beads are usually quite smelly when they are baking in the oven. Doing this project with an open window or proper venting is wise.

Bird Feed Ball Craft

One of the many joys of summer is gazing outdoors at our beautiful feathered friends and other pollinators.

This summer craft is creative and helpful in giving our winged buddies some much-needed nutrients. With this awesome idea, you can help them beat the heat and prepare for the colder months ahead.

Our friends at Life With Jupiter & Dann are the masterminds behind this simple summer craft, which is sure to attract birds to your garden all summer long.

Lard is used as the primary base for the bird feed ball, and it is mixed with seeds, dried fruits, or nuts. This craft is fun and hands-on, which is great for little ones as well. You can see the full tutorial here.

Summer Themed Tumbler

I made this craft myself using my Cricut machine. If you don’t have one, you should totally invest in one — they are so much fun!

All I had to do was download the Cricut Design Space app on my laptop. Then, I could select from a wide selection of images.

First, I selected summer fonts that looked perfect. Then, I chose a couple of other images I thought were cute.

From there, I just had to select the vinyl colors I wanted, and my Cricut machine did all of the awesome cutting work.

Finally, I weeded my decals and applied them to my tumbler using transfer tape. I think it turned out lovely! Check it out here on Pinterest!

Trendy Bendy Candles

I will be honest. I had no idea this was even a trend before Lynn Mumbing Mejia shared it with me. Oh my goodness, I am in love with this simple and elegant craft! It is perfect for summer.

Imagine a full day of self-care. You get your hair done, a manicure, and a massage. You come home to an Epsom salt bath surrounded by elegant, whimsical candles to set the mood.

Talk about the perfect summer spa day!

I love white candles because you can decorate almost any room with them. For fun, I am imagining some awesome rainbow colors as well.

Overall, this is an extremely easy craft. All you need to get started is a set of long tapered candles and a container full of hot water to put them in. Lynn explains exactly how to make them in this full tutorial!

Floral Wreath

Nothing screams summer quite like beautiful flowers! This simple and beautiful floral wreath by Plaid and Sugar will impress.

This summer-inspired crafting project is easy to do and budget-friendly. Most of the components can be found at the Dollar Store or Dollar Tree.

To create a gorgeous wreath like this one, you will need a 10-inch metal ring, faux flowers, and a hot glue gun.

Herbal Vinegar

Did you start an herb garden this summer? If so, Kathy over at Baby Boomer Super Saver has the perfect craft/recipe tutorial for you!

If you’re looking for something to do with your excess herbs, you can learn to make your own herbal vinegar.

Herbal vinegar is also great if you’re trying to maintain a healthy blood pressure and diet.
