DIY Summer To-Do List


I’ve been having so much fun on Pinterest, but I think it’s causing me to become overly ambitious! After sifting through my boards, I have come up with three DIY projects and three recipes that I REALLY want to try out this summer. After that, just call me an over achiever. 

Check out my list below. My hope is to re-post each link along with my version once I’ve finished each project/recipe. 


1. DIY Mirror from The Lettered Cottage

My friend pinned this on her Pinterest board. I want to paint mine turquoise, of course. 

2. Ruffled Streamers from Made:

Fran posted this link once on a Frilling Friday post, and I never forgot about it. These are just so fun and fabulous. I love how they add extra flare and frills to your ordinary streamer. 

3. Ruffle Butt Onesie from Ucreate:

I’ve been working on lots of baby gifts lately (4 of my closest friends have had/will be having babies between May and July). I actually had the idea to do the ruffle butt, but didn’t know how to go about it. I rightly assumed that someone else had the idea before me and blogged about it. This is my next project I’ll be working on. 


1. DIY Oreos from Annie’s Eats:

These look so fun, and I doubt I’ll make time for them during the school year. Who doesn’t love Oreos?

2. Sparkling Strawberry Lemonade also from Annie’s Eats:

What a perfect summer-time recipe! I can’t wait to try this one.

3. Cupcake Fondue from the Modcloth blog:

I’ve been wanting to try this out ever since I relocated my fondue set. It was given to us as a wedding gift, but we never used it. Four years later, I’ve realized how much I love Fondue and am glad to have my set back! This will be a fun, easy recipe to start out with. 

I’m hoping that by posting these projects/recipes, I might actually do them! I have exactly two weeks until summer officially begins for me, so be on the look out for follow-up posts!

Do you have any fun DIYs or recipes we might like?
