Craft Roundup: Fun Projects to Get Summer Rolling

It's June! With school vacation officially around the corner, get DIY with folk candlesticks, wine cork pals, clothespin wrap dolls and beach sand/shell art.

School's almost out for summer – and that means it's time to think of vacation-approved activities. If your child isn't attending a camp and staying closer to home, it's a good idea to have a list of easy craft projects to have on hand for them to enjoy. This week's Make It features a few simple projects that are easy to keep stocked in your craft closet or art supply box.

 

DIY Mini Folk Candlesticks

This adorable project from Love From Ginger is not only a fun craft to keep on hand – it doubles as an even better handmade gift to a family member or friend.

 

Wine Cork Crafts: Pocket Pals

My friends ask me all the time: "What kind of craft projects can I do with my collection of wine corks?!" Here's one idea from MollyMoo Crafts – and it's pretty cute.

 

Clothespin Wrap Dolls

This quaint craft by This Heart of Mine blog is perfect for a quiet, rainy day. How would your children design the dolls to make them their own?

 

Beach Themed Sand & Shell Art

Next time your family hits the beach, don't forget to collect some shells! They can later be used for a fun project like this, from Happiness is Homemade.
