10 Fun Summer DIY Projects

10 Fun Summer DIY Projects - The Palmetto Peaches - palminatl.comThis weekend a migraine and some bad storms robbed me of my motivation to complete my planned blog post (boozy Popsicle recipes). Don’t worry I’ve got some recipes pinned here for you. While drinking wasn’t high on my priority list this weekend, finding some cute seasonal crafts definitely made the list. Below are some awesome summer DIY projects that are perfect to complete when you’re not out at the pool or stuck in the office.

Fruity Picnic Blankets

I need the to make the pineapple one ASAP. These picnic blankets are made out of drop cloths. I made a couch cover out of a drop cloth once and it was pretty easy to dye and work with.

Beach, Please – Graphic Beach Towels

  via Studio DIY

This looks like a fun DIY project, but be careful with the bleach. Here are few other phrases you could put on the towels: beach squad; Yes I’m a mermaid; hello, Sunshine. 


How cute would this be to change out the flowers by season? Also, just a warning  this website has the directions in Swedish followed by English. I’m not sending you to some malware-filled website.

The day I moved to Tallahassee, my Dad bought me a hot pink cactus from Lowe’s to brighten up my place. I eventually killed the cactus because I suck, but this bright and fun cacti garden reminds me of his sweet gesture and the joy it brought me. FYI, nearly all cacti are succulents but not all succulents are cacti. I had to look that up because I was going to call this a succulent garden. Science fail.

Target has some totes in their One Spot or Bullseye’s Playground (is that the new name) that would be perfect for this craft. Think about how cute your beach, please towel would look in a matching tote.



 DIY Summer Wreath

via Decor by the Seashore

The best part about this craft is that with a few changes you can make this wreath a seasonal staple.


I love this simple summer facial for beautiful summer skin!

Banana Pup Pops via bitzngiggles.com

For those of you with canine fur babies, this treat is easy to make and your fur baby will love you for it. Besides, you can’t offer them the boozy popsicle you’re making my list.



Summers Are For Mason Jars

No matter the season I love mason jars. They are so multipurpose. Add a little paint or some ribbon
