4 Summer DIY Projects

The heat is on and summer is quickly approaching. During our Summer DIY Series, we'll be sharing our favorite Pins each week. Here are this week's Top 4 picks for must-try DIY projects to add some pizzazz to your home.

1. Hats are not just meant for winter weather. Can't you imagine this adorable Standing Hat rack with your best floppy hats and sunnies on display? With just a few simple steps and maybe 10 minutes of your time, you can create a cute little vignette in your drop zone. Spray paint it in a coral (totally optional) for an extra pop of color.

2. I'm sure you're familiar with using contact paper to line kitchen cabinets and drawers. It's wipeable, it comes in an array of designs/colors, and it's roughly $3 per roll. Prepare for something you may not have considered: it makes a perfect temporary wallpaper! You can paint it, you can spray it, or you could even give the kids some markers and have custom wallpaper designed by your kiddos. The best part? It's 100% one of a kind to your home because you DIY'd it!

3. Veggie-stamped art is truly winning me over. The kids will love any chance to play with food, but honestly, how can you not love this modern celery art? This is a really fun and inexpensive Summer afternoon project. I can easily see this used to dress up an outdoor food display during one of many backyard barbecues.

4. Coat hangers into potted plant holders could essentially be a free summer project! Visit your local dry cleaners to see if they'll lend you a few and start bending away. If you've got limited surface space for herbs or succulents, this could be a space-saving way to display some greens near a window or add fresh herbs to your summer cooking.
