Summer is in full swing here in Utah, complete with 100+ degree days. So. Hot. My poor kids, who love being outside, come in by 10am with red cheeks and requests for popsicles to try and beat the heat. Crazy stuff.
Since summer got here, we’ve been busy enjoying the nice weather and playing as much as possible. As a result, my spring decorations never really got put away and my only summer decoration was the cute pallet art I made a couple months ago.
I knew this needed to be fixed ASAP so I pulled out some wood crafts I’d purchased about a month ago and worked on them in between play dates and hiking and naps and meals. It’s amazing how long it takes to get things done when you have kids and a house to run! BUT I got it done last week, the day before we were set to go out of town for our vacation with extended family. I snapped some pictures and then rushed to pack myself and my kids to leave early the next morning.
As I mentioned in my post for spring/Easter mantle inspiration, I don’t actually have a mantle, just a credenza, that I decorate for each holiday/season. But obviously this is just to show you what I’ve done and give you some ideas for your own mantle or table. For your convenience, I’ve listed where I bought each item or the link to how I made it, below the pictures.
And if you’re looking for more creative summer inspiration, I’m participating in a blog hop with some very talented ladies. Click on the links below to go to their page and see some great ideas!
