Summer is right around the corner, which typically means a more flexible schedule, warm nights, and backyard pool parties. Whether you’re hoping to entertain guests or lounge around with a good book, it never hurts to create an environment that draws you in to relax. Take advantage of the longer days by sprucing up your home with a few easy DIYs that you can complete alone or with the help of some little hands.
While blanket ladders may seem like a fall project, you can easily do this cheap DIY and make it into a pool towel ladder. Everyone knows that hanging your towels off the edges of chairs just means someone will lean back against them at some point and get them wet. This solves that problem and makes for a cute outdoor decoration.
Outdoor Tie Dye Pillows
Another way to make your back patio stand out is with some tie dye pillows. You can do these with your kids and create a design with whatever colors best fit your outdoor theme. Not only is it a fun summer day activity, but the colors will really pop on your outdoor chairs.
Spruce up your front porch and make your home more inviting with a DIY doormat. You just need to take a plain doormat, add a fun summer stencil, and paint away!
Front Door Wreaths
You can also make your front door stand out with a DIY wreath. You can take something as simple as painted clothes pins, or really go all out and make a flip flop wreath! I guarantee you’ll be the only one on the block with something as unique as that.
Tabletop Fire Bowl
If you’ve always wanted a fire pit in your backyard but you just don’t have the time or money to make one, create an inexpensive, mini fire pit that you can keep on the table, away from little hands, and still make those delicious summer S’mores.
