Five Fun Crafts to Try This Summer

Does sunshine bring out your creative side? Are you looking for some arts and crafts that get you outside and embracing nature? Then here are five craft ideas that you may want to try this summer.

1) Make your own shell Mermaid jewellery

Show your love for the seaside by making your very own shell necklace or bracelet.


You can pick up a pack of natural craft shells at hobbycraft  and decorate them just like we’ve done above using POSCA markers.


Once you’ve added some colour to your shells you can create a hole using a small drill. Then thread some string or a chain through the hole to create your seashell jewellery. Add some sparkly beads for extra effect too!


For more tips on decorating shells this summer check out our blog post – ‘How to Paint Shells Using POSCA Pens’.  

2) Make your own fairy door

If you are having fun with your POSCA pens you can even use them to make a super simple fairy door, just like this one.

 We think lots of people will be making fairy doors this summer and if you are looking to find out what the fuss is all about click here to read our blog post all about them.

3) Make this sweet summer dreamcatcher
