Want to add a little flair to your jewelry? Why not add tassels to your naked hoop earrings? They’re very bold and chic. A great item to make and wear for the summer with your favorite casual dress or with your shirt and jeans.

Need a decorating home idea for your home. Why not add colorful faux flowers to your mason jar? You don’t specifically have to use while flowers but the idea is the added flair to your jar and turn it into your own type of style. It’s really cute and home decor worthy.

HomeMade Tassel Keychains

I love these individualized keychains. I would personally like these tassels to my purse or my wallet, adding my own little decorative signature to it. They’re definitely a creative handmade craft worth making at home. 

DIY Wood Stick Hanging Frame

This is, I think, the fastest and easiest craft you can do. All you have to do is find a print you like ( I prefer this particular one from Etsy), woods, glue gun or staples, strings, and you’re set. Isn’t this a great decor item though?

Paper Wisteria

I love this! I have never heard of a paper wisteria before but this is something I can definitely try this summer! This is can be a great decor item for any seasonal time, especially this summer. You can hang in your room, your patio, or anywhere you like. 

Dishwasher Safe Mug

I love mugs, especially when mugs have words that I like or mean a lot to me. DIY mugs are the same thing. You can write down words that mean a lot to you. It could be your favorite bible verse or your favorite catchphrase. This could be a mug that defines your values in life, reminding you to always live a life that way.

DIY Wooden Trivet Set

Another creative handmade craft idea to do at home is making your own trivet or casserole holder. I love this particular handmade trivet because of black and white color coordination. Of course, for this particular summer, you can color it into whatever you like. Think about a specific color that means summer to you, and color it like that. 

DIY Thrifted Photo Frame

I love this handmade craft idea. What stands out the most when I chose this handmade craft was the frames and the images. I love these particular images that blend together. If you’re going to be trying this, think of an image that means a lot to you. You can even create You can even find particular images on Etsy such as these if you’re into abstracts. 

DIY Peppermint & Eucalyptus Shower Melts

This summer, though some of us are going to be staying in, that doesn’t mean you should not indulge in a spa treatment made by yourself. Self-care is so essential during these times, but also in your time. Therefore, this is definitely a handmade craft idea to try at home and use it whenever you need to relieve stress and tend to your self-care. 


DIY Leaf Clay Dish

Though this particular DIY craft is geared toward older kids, I think it’s still something many adults can make to add a decorative flair to the home. The leaf clay dish can be used for simple decoration, a key holder, or a ring holder. It’s a fun simple craft that anyone, no matter their age, can do. 

Marbled Clay Ring Dish

Aren’t these just the cutest? Marble is sooo in! Just like the leaf clay dish, this is for similar use. They’re easy to make and as you can see, very colorful too. Try to make one this summer!

DIY Bath Bombs

If you’re a bath bomb fanatic, making your own will save you money than actually buying one. They’re a great use for that weekend stay-in when you just want to soak in the bathtub, reading your book and enjoying the silence of the day (or listen to jazz if that’s your thing). The supplies listed on A Beautiful Mess website may be hard to find, so I found wholesale supplies plus, a homemaking soap supply online store. They contain the necessary supplies you will need to make your own bath bomb. 


DIY Mermaid Shell Sweatshirt 

If you’re into adding a little flair to an old clothing item, why not try this one for the summer? This is definitely great to DIY clothing to wear in the summer and it sparkles! 

There you go! I hope you find yourself to try one of these craft ideas for yourself or as a gift item to someone in your circle. Make the time to tend to your creative side today and have fun with these ideas. Which particular DIY craft idea was one you wanted to try?

Until Next Time,
