You know what sounds so fun? Getting a group of your closest friends together, whipping up some summer cocktails, everyone pitching in to make charcuterie boards (we have a ton of themed board ideas!), and sitting down together to eat, drink, and make some cool art! The weather is nice, the days are longer, and making art is therapeutic. If this sounds like your idea of a good day, then we’ve got the craft projects covered, you just need to come up with the charcuterie board and cocktails!
No Bake Sharpie Art Bowls (Or Flower Pots Or Mugs!)
This is a really simple DIY that will be easy to execute even if you’re elbow-deep in a charcuterie board and a couple of cocktails in. All you need are ceramic bowls, mugs, or pots, whichever you prefer, Sharpies, a foam brush, and Mod Podge! We are currently obsessed with all things ‘coastal grandmother’ so we love the idea of making our own blue and white dishes and/or flower pots. Get the full instructions here!
Botanical Wood Slices
If you have a thing for natural pieces and vintage floral prints, then you’ll adore these botanical wood slices. All you need are some wood slices, wax paper, tape, scissors, a credit card, and some basic printer paper. You’ll use a simple transfer method to get your florals or greens to your wood slices, using any colors and designs you want, then you’ll be free to use them on a gallery wall, as coasters, or whatever you come up with.

We love what a little accent mirror can add to a wall or even the room as a whole, and this one can easily be made with your own two hands and what we really love is that this is a bit of an Anthropologie dupe and we are all about Anthro dupes. We recommend checking out your local thrift stores for a good mirror to work with, other than a mirror all you need is some glue, cotton rope, a wreath base, wood beads, and twine.

Crescent Moon Wreath
Call us basic, but we’re ‘look at the moon’ kinda people and we may need to make one of these crescent moon wreaths for every season. This is probably the most involved craft we’ve featured, but once you have your base made, from here it’s all about how creative you’re feeling and what you want to adorn your wreath with. We love the idea of incorporating all shapes, sizes, textures, and colors of flowers, plants, and jewels to create a full, eclectic wreath. Get the full instructions here!
