Seashell wreath

Summertime is really beach time, isn't it? Bring that beachy feeling home to your doorstep with a summer-inspired wreath. Wreaths aren't just for Christmas! This seashell wreath screams summer and is surprisingly easy and affordable to make with items you can buy at art supply stores like Michaels and dollar stores. 

DIY Rustic sailboat

We love the summery vibes of this DIY Rustic Sailboat. It's super easy to make in under half an hour and will totally remind you of warm summer days and nights spent by or on the water. Put it on your mantle (if you have one), or use it as a centerpiece for your dining room table. 

Travel picnic blanket

This travel picnic blanket is great because it can be used at home and out and about! Use it as a fun throw blanket in your apartment, then fold it up and tote it to your next summer picnic!

Seashell centerpiece

If you collect seashells, you can create beautiful summery decor with them simply by filling up a vase with them, or a glass food storage jar, or cloche. These make great centerpieces and look amazing on a windowsill or mantle.

Tropical leaf side table 

Whether you need a side table for your bedroom or living room, or a delightful plant stand, you'll love this DIY Tropical leaf side table. The table top is shaped like a Monstera leaf!

We hope you give these DIY summer decor projects a try!
