Hip Hip Hurray! Summer Time is here! OK… its been here in my part of Texas for a few weeks (enough with the humidity already), but its now official and I an itching to start on some fun summer projects. I’ve got a bunch of things I want to create/make/do this year!
1. Summer DIY Succulent Garden from Shelterness
I’ve been fascinated by the succulent gardens I’ve seen around the blogosphere… them seem hard to kill, so it would be perfect for me 🙂 My hubby says I have a black thumb… So I can only hope that I’ll manage to keep something like this alive 🙂
Outdoor Cushions from Counrty Living
I’ve been spending lots of time outside in the mornings and evenings when its not scorching hot. But after about 30 minutes or so, my poor behind gets sore from sitting on the rock hard ground. I NEED an outdoor cushion! This project WILL happen this summer 🙂
Summery DIY Party Banner from Chuckabug Blog
If I get the birthday party that I wish for/have a pinterest board for, there will be miles and miles of bright and colorful pennants similar to this! Someone in DFW want to lend me their backyard for a day? 🙂
Make a personal fire pit for Cheap from the Art of Doing Stuff
I love the idea of having a smaller, inexpensive fire place! This one is just the right size for 2 people to roast a marshmellow or 2 while snuggling. It would also be kind of perfect for someone that lives in an urban area with a balcony! Hubby will probably have to help with this one though.
DIY Bird Bath from Fairy Yardmother
My husband LOVES watching the birds that come to the front yard. We’ve got feeders all over our property too! He’s been talking about wanting a bird bat for the front yard… maybe I’ll surprise him one weekend with the supplies and we can tackle this together 🙂 Aren’t I a sweet wife? 😉
Summery Striped Neon Shirt from Shrimp Salad Circus
I want to do this to ALL. THE. SHIRTS! For real! I’ve already started hunting through my closets and building a pile of shirts that I want to spice up for summer time. Next week I’ll be getting my shirt painting on!
DIY Anthropologie Inspired Pillow from 6th Street Design School
THIS! Just This!!! Need I say more? What a perfect way to use up some of the smaller scraps of fabrics I’ve been hoarding for forever!
DIY Camera Bag the Easy Way from Love Hobby Craft
I simply adore this! I need to make one for me AND one for my photographer sister 🙂 She’ll love it!
‘Hi’ Hooks from Ideas Mag
String art is something that I definitely want to play with this summer… Adding hooks to the bottom and making it actually PRACTICAL?!?!? Brilliant!
Make Your Own Tree Swing from A Beautiful Mess
I can just imagine swinging away day an night on something like this! I’m not entirely sure we have a tree big/sturdy enough for one… but I’m gonna find out!
And there you have it 10 Projects that will make for a fabulous summer! Well, they will certainly be making my summer fabulous! Whats on your list for the summer?
