Summer Themed Tumbler

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

All I had to do was download the Cricut design space app on my laptop. From there I was able to select from tons of images.

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

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

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

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! I feel like 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 a epsom salt bath surrounded by these elegant whimsical candles to set the mood.

I love the white candles because you could decorate pretty much any room with them. I am imagining some awesome rainbow colors as well for fun.

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!

    I don’t have a Cricut machine, but it’s inspiring to see that you can do so much with it. There are are many good ideas in this post! Thanks for including my post on making delicious herbal vinegars. I want to try the trendy bendy candle project next. 🙂
