Now the sun is shining we all want to be outside! Right? Okay maybe you’re more like us and you want to hide out inside and avoid the heat/sunburn/sweating profusely. If so, we have the perfect craft and DIY inspiration for you – find our favorite craft projects to keep you busy this summer. Whether you want something simple or a longer project, you can find everything you need for these projects at Blue Kangaroo!
Decorating plant pots
Probably the simplest of all the projects we’ll suggest in this post – just grab yourself a plain plant pot and some paint (and some waterproofing solution for the finished product) and off you go!
Reinventing your old shirts/pillow cases
Do you have any old clothes that need a new lease of life? Tie-dying is an age-old technique for giving old fabrics a second wind by covering them with some groovy colorful patters. If you want something that’s a little more on-trend, embroidery is huge this season so get your sewing machine out and try out some cool patterns which can create a feature piece for any room in the house.
Mementos of the summer
This one is definitely for the kids, whether they’ve been to camp or just want to have a permanent memory of a great family vacation. We love the idea of hanging some natural souvenirs somewhere in your home or garden, another idea could be using shells or stones found on a beach to record the date and location of your trip!
Craft kits for children
The best way to occupy your little ones over the summer break is by giving them a craft kit. They can spend hours and hours making little gifts to give to their friends and family (or maybe even you)!
