Stay creative with our DIY projects for the summer
Summer is the ideal season to test the DIYs that we have carefully drawn for you! On your deckchair or by the sea, take the time to take out the essentials, such as your scissors, your paints and your seashells, not to mention the multi-use glue! So, don't delay and opt for the creative and sunny ideas that follow!
Turn your market tote into a pretty storage basket
As we have already mentioned, one of the main goals of our DIY ideas for the summer is certainly to give a second life to your forgotten things. So, transform your old market tote bags into pretty storage baskets! To do this, take:
- 1 market bag
- 1 spray of acrylic paint
- colored wool scraps (for the pompoms)
- glitter glue
- 1 fine brush
Start by sticking adhesive tape around the diameter of your tote. This will limit or even determine the area to be painted with acrylic paint. Then proceed to coloring using the spray paint (for this step please go outside). After spraying the color evenly, let the basket sit for 4 hours or until the paint no longer sticks when you run your finger through it. Remove the ribbon and add some glitter glue to it using the paintbrush. Depending on your preference, you can apply multiple layers to it. There you go, your little storage basket is almost ready! To give it a little more color, do not hesitate to form some pretty wool pompoms. To stick on the edge or to hang on the handles,these pompoms will make your basket a colorful fresco that will very easily find its place in your living room or bedroom.
DIY for summer: flower pots made of seashells
For all those who like to collect seashells by the sea, here is a DIY for the summer that will probably interest you. Easy to carry out and 100% summery, the manual activity based on shells, sea pebbles and driftwood offers a multiplicity of projects. In addition to serving as magnificent and resolutely original decorative objects, these summer vacation finds can be diverted into superb DIY gifts. As for this next idea, it will bring a charming air to all your flower pots!
Materials to be provided to you:
- terracotta pot
- hot glue
There is nothing easier than adding a summery touch to your veranda! All you have to do is take the seashells, which you collected during your last vacation, and sort them from the largest to the smallest. To make the first row, then glue the large seashells to the top of the flowerpot. Tip: apply glue to the edges of the seashells and press gently. Then make the second row between two seashells from the previous row. Continue until you have covered the entire surface of the pot. Now all that's missing is your pretty flowers.
