With Summer just around the corner my excitement is building to decorate with calming blues and tan color schemes. A color pallet that is so relaxing and pleasing to the eye. Today I have 3 DIY crafts to share with you, as well as a tutorial video showing all the step by steps that I took to make them. ALSO, over on my YouTube Channel (Heidi Sonboul DIY) you will find a playlist linking to MANY other Crafters playing along in my challenge “The DIY Challenge”. The theme is Summer.

Wall Art Home Decor
Using the above printable, I created 2 beautiful HIGH END wall art home decor items. Wall art like this can have a huge price tag at some of my favorite stores. With just a few supplies you can also make these frames.
Supplies: 2 – Dollar Tree Art Canvas Boards, Wood, The Free Printable, and Paint.
Ombre Metal Planter Buck Vase
For my 2nd DIY craft, the inspiration came from Antique Farmhouse. One of my favorite sites. You can see that these buckets were so popular that they sold out. I couldn’t get past the price though. I knew that I could make it for just $1.00 and some paint.
The 2 most important steps for this DIY are to first spray paint a base coat of paint onto the bucket and then to blend the colors well to get that ombre summer look. After that, it’s just flicking on speckles of brown paint to give it the farmhouse enamel look. I did only made 1 bucket, but that is STILL a HUGE savings and I had a blast making it myself.
Wooden Quote Blocks
My final DIY craft inspiration was found at Cedar Mountain. I LOVE these wooden quote blocks, but there is NO WAY I would ever pay $29 for these. It’s just wood and paint.
These are both items that I had on hand and knew that I could get the exact look for free.
I love how mine turned out and I love the price even more. Now remember, if you don’t feel comfortable painting letters by hand, you can use a vinyl cutting machine or even stamps. I personally used acrylic stamps for my quotes and you can see how I did it in the video I shared on my channel.
I hope you felt inspired by these DIY crafts today and you will give them a try. I love the coastal farmhouse style at summer time and it just creates such a calming environment.
