With summer officially arriving next week, naturally, I’m in a frenzied craft-make-do-clean EVERYTHING mode. The warm weather inspires me, what can I say? The easiest step in making things happen, of course, is finding some inspiration and figuring out what you want to do. The actual crafting/making/doing/cleaning is the hard part. Today, I’m focusing on the easy part. Here are a few of my pins that I’d like to see happen in some iteration in my own home:
1. Ridiculously Cute Tennis Ball Small Item Holder (That name just rolls off the tongue, don’t it )
A) How cute is it? B) He holds mail! C) Really, how cute is it??? I can see this as a nice, functional pop of color somewhere.
2) Cork Succulent Starter Magnets
I still have a few magnets left over from my gemstone magnet project, and this seems like the perfect use for them. Hollow out a wine cork (lord knows I have plenty of those laying around!), add magnet, soil and a succulent. I’m seeing them as a great way to start new plants from clippings.
3) Neon Plant Pots
Back in the day I got a ridiculously large haul of terra-cotta pots on Freecycle. Though with my butter fingers many have bit the dust, I still have plenty. A can of spray paint and some masking tape and I may just be able to upgrade those freebies into a statement.
4) Wine Cork Plant Labels
These are super cute, and I could use a better plant labeling system. Somehow whenever I get to planting, I completely forget about writing down what goes where. I’ll start a garden map and only keep up with it for the first half of the gardening session. Right now, one corner of the garden is just a crapshoot of cucurbits- cucumbers, melons, gourds all intermingling. It’ll be a nice little surprise when the veggies start popping up and I can put a face to a plant, so to speak. So yeah, had I made labels before hand, I wouldn’t be in this pickle (ha! pun totally intended).
5) Mason Jar Soap Dispenser
Many people have done versions of this nifty little craft and I think I may just have to throw my hat into the ring. It’d look cute on my sink, if I do say so myself.
So, what are you planning to craft this summer?
