May is here and before you know it summer break will have begun! Today I’m sharing some of my favorite DIY Projects that are perfect for summer time! You know you want to add a few more things to your to do list ; ) I hope you enjoy this list of DIY Summer Projects!
DIY Planter – This DIY Planter is a great beginner project if you are feeling uncomfortable with whipping out some tools! It’s just straight cuts and pocket holes, and trust me, you want to learn all about pocket holes!
Outdoor Herringbone Table – This outdoor herringbone table is definitely a little more advanced, but so worth the time and effort. All those angle cuts can make for a long day with your trusty miter saw, but the end result is gorgeous!
Chunky Outdoor Bench – This is another great beginner project! I used 4×4’s because it gives a nice chunky look, and can I just say this is one solid bench! We have moved it all over the country, and it’s still going strong (despite my kids attempts to destroy it… I mean play on it).
Chalkboard Candle Box – This chalkboard candle box is the perfect project to get your kids involved with. It doesn’t require any crazy tools and can be made using scraps so there’s no real risk of your kids costing you money! Time to get their hands dirty!
DIY Citronella Candles – If you’re going to make the fun chalkboard box with your kids, you’ll definitely want these citronella candles to go inside the box! Nobody loves mosquitoes… I’m fairly certain that’s a fact!
DIY Wood Stain – If you get into building over the summer this is a very fun project, and can be fun for the kiddos to watch! Did you know you could make your own wood stain, and it provides absolutely beautiful results! It’s a win win!
DIY Burlap Flower Carrier – This was a fun little thing I did with my daughter one day in the summer and she absolutely loved making it! It’s also a cute outdoor piece of decoration and takes hardly any time at all!
DIY Outdoor Chairs – These chairs are a straight forward build and way more affordable than buying your own! The amount of money I spent on lumber for 4 chairs was about the same as buying one chair at a store. However, I did have to buy the cushions (which are never cheap guys!)
