Go ahead and take a look at the list below for some easy summer crafts, and then watch the video for more info on each one!

Outdoor Wine Cork Table

Isn’t this just the cutest little table you ever did see? If you enjoy spending evenings out on the porch with a glass of wine (or three, no judgment here), then this is the project for you! Grab a large, outdoor planter (or any tub, really), and fit a piece of wood about a quarter to halfway down. Then, pour a bunch of wine corks until it’s filled, and fit it with a plate of glass!

DIY Citronella Candles

Ah, nothing says, “summer,” like mosquitos, right? That’s where these citronella candles come in handy! Grab some stemless wineglasses from the store or from a thirft store, add a wick, melt some wax, and add a few drops of citronella essential oil. If you’re not a fan of the citronella smell, you can always add a few drops of lavendar to cover it.

Easy Hanging Lamp

Grab a large, plastic flower pot and spray paint it in your desired color. Then drill a hole in the bottom and add a chain and S hook, to secure in place. Finally, add a push-on, push-off light to the underside of the pot using velcro command strips for easy access to switch out tha batters.
