Best Of Summer DIYs

Categorized as Create, DIY Projects

I was looking back through the Wonder Forest archives and found some of my favourite warm weather DIYs to date.

With many of us taking much needed holidays from work or school, I thought it was the perfect time to re-hash some of them to inspire you to get creating!

DIY Kimono From a Scarf – This one is more recent but is still one of my favourites. I’ve made a handful of scarf kimonos for under $50 and half an hour.

Lavender and Oatmeal Bath Soak – I included this one because nothing feels better after a long day in the sun than a warm bath to soothe your skin. It also makes for a cheap and quick gift!

Flower Crown Tutorial – Because it’s summer… who doesn’t need a flower crown!? With festivals still in season, you’ll probably want to get your floral crafting skills down!

DIY High Waist Denim Shorts – To go with your new flower crown, of course! This is a comprehensive guide showing you how to take a pair of old/thrifted jeans and turn them into your favourite new summer shorts.

Dip Dye Ombre Tank Tutorial – This is probably still one of my favourites because I still wear this tank and it was so cheap to create. Not to mention, nobody else has the same one!

Patchwork Picnic Blanket – Using scraps of fabric, you can easily create a new eclectic blanket for picnics or the beach.

Have you tried any of these? I’d love to know which is your favourite as well!
