Creations, Summer Crafts

Summer has officially arrived in the South, with sunny days and highs in the 80s, people are busy enjoying the beach and the water on the coast

 

 

Even if summer hasn’t arrived where you live, here are some of my favorite summer crafts that will bring summer right to your door

    Ooh! I like many of those ideas! Gosh, we’re just now calling an official spring here. My azaleas are full, and my first iris and roses just bloomed in the past couple of days. Big difference from the deep South!

    Wow, you are starting summer and we are just now getting into spring! Ha My tulip tree is in full bloom with lovely pink and white tulip shaped flowers (a cousin to your beautiful Magnolia tree in the south) and the Azalea is blooming, YEA! Bleeding hearts are stating to fill in, love them too. Jealous that you can already go swimming. Our cold fresh water lakes won’t be ready until mid to late June typically. Oh the joys of the south. Wish we had more of that up north. Love all your summer projects, especially fixing the wicker chair feet. I have one chair whose feet are starting to unravel, so I will keep your neat tip in mind. Thank You Jenna and happy swimming! 😊

    • Thanks Cyndi, we love our mild climate and swim year round with the help of a pool heater in the colder months. Late summer the heat and humidity are pretty brutal, but on the coast there’s always a breeze. I know your tulip tree is beautiful!

  7. It’s summer here in Texas, for sure! I love crafty projects when it gets super hot and we are trying to hide inside. We aren’t there yet but those days will come and I will enjoy this list. 😉
