I’m sad to report that this year I will not be visiting the sunny beaches of southern Florida. At least once a day, I close my eyes, take a breath, and transport myself back to the white sandy beaches of Fort Lauderdale. The salty air, soft breeze and crashing waves never cease to relax me, even if I’m stuck in traffic (in that case I keep my eyes open, promise). If you’re like me and can’t get out to the beach this summer, there are plenty of ways to bring your favorite elements home with you. Turn your local pool into an island getaway with a DIY beach cover up or hang a wreath in your living room and pretend you’re staying at a beach bungalow.
There are plenty of beach essentials that you can craft at home – it’s a great way to save on items you only use for a few months each year. A Field of Fireworks Beach Towel will never be lost of forgotten because the colors and design make it one of a kind. The same can be said for the Beach Mat and Tote Bag crochet pattern. This large carry-all can be used all year long – it’s great for new mommies and students! If you’re tend to stay inside during the summer, you can still add tropical elements to your space. Decorate your table with Beach and Seashell Glass Candle Rings or add a Cute Seashell Frame to your mantel – both are fun and easy projects that you can make at any time.
Save money on an expensive vacation and craft up your own beach getaway this summer. There’s no SPF required for these fantastic crafts and you won’t have to worry about sand in your shorts!
