50 DIY Ideas to Keep you Busy All Summer

When you think of Summer your mind might go straight to beach, sun and sand. But I have DIY ideas for the Summer on my mind.

When I’m crafting, I get into this ‘zone’. I have some time alone with my thoughts, and at the same time I can give my mind some quite time as I’m focused on creating something with my hands.

Do you ever get into the ‘zone’?

The timing couldn’t be better to roll up your sleeves and get some DIYing done. You probably took some time off work, or things have slowed down over the Summer. You’ve scheduled more time to spend with the kids or just to sit back, relax and enjoy a nice summer drink on the deck.

This relaxed mood is the perfect boost for your creativity. Pick a DIY tutorial from this list and enjoy some alone time. Or use it to create a fun activity and moment with your kids, family or friends.

To make this list I scoured the many DIY tutorials I have here on The Makeup Dummy. And I was pleasantly surprised on how many options I had to include here.

Over the years that I’ve been blogging I managed to gather quite a collection of DIY tutorials that are perfect to make during the Summer period, and I’m so grateful that I get the opportunity to share them with you.
