Monday Mashups: DIYs for Summertime

The sun is finally making an appearance and we couldn't be more excited! It has us dreaming of those soon-to-be beach days: catching some rays, feeling the ocean breeze, digging our toes in the sand--there's really nothing better. So to prepare us for the best time of the year, we thought we would share some fun DIYs for summertime. These DIYs have a nautical theme that would work beautifully in any summer home. Get out your glue gun and help us celebrate the sun by crafting up these five fun ideas!

Knotted Rope Coasters

Protect your surfaces in style with these nautical knotted rope coasters.Get the tutorial at Sally Lee by the Sea.

This trivet is made from a turks head knot. This is the same kind of knot as Mystic Knotwork’s famous sailor bracelets, just flattened. Trivet is 6 1/2 inch Cotton Nautical Rope Trivet and Made in the USA. It has a 6 1/2 inch diameter and is made with 1/4 inch cotton rope. It is thick enough to protect your table from anything hot you may place on it. Learn how to create these here.

Corked Anchor

If you're like us, you probably drank a good amount of wine this winter while staying in and keeping warm. In which case, you probably have a ton of leftover corks (if you saved them). Get crafty and put together this awesome anchor that will be a focal point of your summer home! Learn how to make it here.

Rope Ottoman

These DIY rope ottomans are so cool! Students would love using them as seating, and they'd match the decor theme in your ocean, garden, nautical, and farm classroom themes!:

These are perfect for any outdoor space. We love how great these look and how easy they are to make. Literally all you need is rope, a tire, a few simple tools and time. A nice cold margarita might help too! Build these beauties here.

Life-Preserver Feature

DIY Nautical Decor Roundup - A Prudent Life:

How fun is this for décor in your summer home? Works for any bathroom or changing area since the life-preserver can hold a small mirror at its center. All you need is 3 large letters, blue paint and damage-free hanging strips. Easy and inexpensive! Learn how to craft this here.

Pallet Swing

Take that leftover pallet you have laying around and transform it into something useful for an indoor or outdoor space. Using rope as the supports totally makes this a perfect nautical display. Learn how to build this here!

We hope these ideas get you as ready for summer as we hope to be! Share how you devour the details of DIYs for summertime in the comments section and let us know how you plan to celebrate the sun!
