From beach-inspired wall decor to clever jewelry holder, we’ll dive into a world of summer-themed crafts that will enliven your space and ignite your imagination.
Decorative Door with Wreath
This stunning decorative door is one that can be used year round, and I love it!
I took two burlap canvases and removed the excess burlap fabric from one of the short edges. This allowed them to connect nicely together with hot glue.
I then took several paint sticks and painted them white, cut them to size, and framed the door on all edges as well as the center. I also doubled them up to give the frame a thicker look.
I drilled a hole in the middle, left side, and threaded an old drawer knob I had on hand.
I zip-tied a white flower wreath, approrpiately sized, to the top of the door.
And that’s it! What a beautiful DIY craft that’s easy and so versatile!
Beach Themed Wall Decor
This beached themed decor was so much fun to make!!!
I took a burlap canvas from Dollar Tree and hand-painted a “shore-like” design on it. I used three different tones of blues as well as white paint. I made sure to give it a “wavy” style for a more life-like look.
I then hot glued a decorative star fish to the “sandy” area and added nautical rope from Dollar Tree in a wave-like design.
How fun is this one!? What do you think?
Neutral Decorative Tray
This tray is beautiful and so easy to make!
I took three thin, horizontal wood signs from Dollar Tree and cut them to fit as a trim to one of their burlap canvas.
Once I had them cut to size, I painted them white with chalk paint. I then attached them all around the edges, giving it a tray look. I used hot glue and brad nails to attach them.
I then wrapped nautical rope from Dollar Tree all around the outside perimeter for added texture and design. I used hot glue to attach it.
That’s it! How easy was that!? What do you think?
Chick Earing Holder
This DIY craft is beautiful and functional!
I took a Dollar Tree burlap canvas and stenciled a beautiful design on it using white chalk paint.
I then framed it with painted paint sticks left over from the first project. I hot glued them in place, cutting as needed to fit the canvas.
I then added two open eye hooks to the top and tied rope from Dollar Tree to be able to hang it!
Easy, quick, and so beautiful!
