I’m dreaming of warm weather by the poolside drinking an ice cold lemonade. Doesn’t that sound so lovely? Yes please! Today I have 6 new DIYs to share. If you would like to see how I made each of these, you can CLICK HERE to watch my Video tutorial. If you want more inspiration, feel free to check out my DIY YouTube Channel where I share lots and lots of projects.
I also designed a FREE Fun Summer Bee Themed Printable that you can use with this project or for your own projects. The color theme is yellow, peach, black and white. It comes in 3 different sizes to download. Click on the links below to grab your copy.
Honey Bee Stacking Boxes
These 3 different sized printables are to create this darling summer stacking boxes craft. I picked up 3 different sized gift boxes from the Dollar Tree and gave them all a coat of white spray paint. Once they were dried, I printed my printable, cut it down to size, and adhered them to the box.
These store perfectly inside of each other when not in use. When you want to put them out, simply stack them largest to smallest. You will have an easy affordable home decor craft anyone would love.
Choose Happy Wooden Sign
This next DIY came from an inspiration image I found on Wayfair. I couldn’t believe the price for this easy to make sign. You can see that it’s made from wood and paint. I picked up 2 garden fence posts and cut them in half. Then I secured the boards together on the backside, and painted the whole thing with different shades of green. Also, I should mention that I hand painted the letters, but you could easily use a vinyl cutting machine to get the look too.
I love how this turned out and it’s a great reminder for my kids. I strongly believe that happiness is a personal choice and I teach this to them daily. If we seek it in our homes (and within ourselves) we will find that love and kindness will fill up each room, making it a slice of heaven here on earth. I love signs like this to help family members remember it’s up to them to choose happiness even on those hard days. We each contribute to the family experience and the mood of the home. Please don’t get me wrong. I do also believe that everyone is allowed a good cry. I just also believe that if you stay there for too long, it starts to affect others around you and it’s honestly not a great place to dwell. Life is so short and each day is such a wonderful gift.
Lemon Flower Wreath
This inspiration came from Darby Creek Trading (yet another site I love for inspiration). This wreath was BEAUTIFUL, but there is no way I would ever pay $299.00 for it. I knew we could do it for a fraction of the cost.
I would highly recommend watching THIS VIDEO that goes with these crafts because I show all the step by step instructions on how I put everything together. Yes, it is not exactly like the inspiration, but that is because I used it as inspiration and wanted a slightly different look. If I were to add in more butter cream roses and berries, it would have costed me about $35. Which is still a huge savings and what a lovely way to welcome guests with a happy wreath like this.
Burlap Heart Banner
This Banner inspiration came from Walmart. $13.60 doesn’t seem bad until you realize how inexpensive the supplies are. Small pieces of burlap, with fabric and twine that costs pennies. Most of us have these supplies already laying around our craft rooms.
I personally love decorating with hearts all year long and think that this simple and darling banner really completes the look I was going for on my farmhouse decor shelves.
By the way. I’m curious. Do you still have a decor shelf in your home? I know that once upon a time they were the trendy thing. I still love them and decorate for each season or holiday. It just makes me so happy to look at it and all the little things I’ve collected over the years.
Farm Fresh Lemon Sign
This farm fresh lemon sign uses Dollar Tree items that I had on hand. I had so much fun making this for my kitchen and it has 5 easy steps that I share in THE VIDEO. Any level of crafter could recreate this look and even use different fruits or vegetables.
Floral Decor Planter
Last but not least is this pretty floral decor planter. I used a Dollar Tree gift box that I spray painted white. I added a charming gingham ribbon. Then I filled it with florals, greenery, and lemons that I skewered on a stick to keep them down and in place.
I hope you enjoyed these 6 easy Summer DIYs and remember to grab any of the FREE printables linked above. If you give any of these a try, please do tag me on Instagram. I would LOVE to see them and your take on them.
