Summer Fun Time Tips

I’m still in complete denial that summer starts for us next week. Eeek! Here are some creative summer time tips. May your summer be beautiful and crafty.

This is Amy’s swim bag towel tutorial. Make a Swim Bag to carry a matching Swimming Towel to carry to the beach or pool this summer.

Robin submitted her anklet tutorial. Summers coming here’ a fun little anklet to celebrate!

Tracy submitted her Light the Night idea. These nifty lanterns will add a crafty touch to your patio this spring and summer!

– Save your jars any size you wish
-Wind wire 3 times around the neck of the jar
– Twist together the wire ends and twist
– Cut 3 12 inch wire lengths, loop one end around each neck wire
– Thread on beads
– Wrap the end around a marker to make a loop
– Use the hot glue gun to attach a sequin or ribbon of choice
– Put flat glass marbles and a tea light inside the jar

Hang on your patio or awning and enjoy!

I’m a loving Leigh Ann’s Ice Cream Cone Cozies. Skip sticky summer hands with these cute little cozies! {{fabulous}}

Heather made a Top 10 list of what she does for Summer Fun.

Lyndsey featured this Shovelin‘ Sand Cake Tower. You can use this idea for a summer birthday party or just a fun summer party.

Lori has some great summer tradition ideas. Like summer party & goal setting w/kids. I like her summer calendar and boredom buster can.

Tweet Tips:

I asked my Tweeple what end of summer traditions they have and Kendra sent me her link to her end of school breakfast. My boys are on a serious pancake kick so they would love this!
