DIY Summer Ideas for Your Farmhouse


Folks, summer is here and the temperature is rising but we don’t have to fret. Instead, why not grab a cool drink, hang out on your porch, and read some fun ways to make summer life interesting? Here we give you some DIY activities or projects you can do to entertain yourself or if it’s child-friendly, you can invite your kids to do it too. Try some of it and have fun.

Five DIY Projects for a Fun Summer

Tin or Galvanized Buckets

Julie, the owner of the blog Little Farmstead, shared some easy ways to spice up your porch. Instead of using the conventional clay pots, she used galvanized buckets or containers. You can paint them if you want some color for your porch, and because it’s summer, a splash of bright colors will add a nice touch to your home.

Colander Planter

This next DIY project is as easy as the first. Instead of placing your plants on the floor, try hanging them using a colander. Yes, you heard that right! If you have some unused colander you don’t need, don’t throw them away. Use them to make some lovely pots for your plants. Two Twenty One‘s blog has the complete instructions on how to make one.

If you think you are ready to make your own furniture, then this next project is for you. Making this farmhouse table will not only help you learn a new skill, but you will be able to make an extra table for those summer parties you’re planning to throw.

DIY Jute Coaster and Placemat

After you’re done making your lovely table, it’s time to make the table’s ornaments. City Farmhouse has an easy way for you to make placemats. The only things you will need are glue and jute.
