Craft And Design Month: Summer Ideas
May has been officially declared Britain’s craft and design month!
Craft and Design Month has been nationally recognised to enhance the growing awareness and appreciation of fine art and craft; so what better time to get involved and have fun this summer than now.
Crafts are a fantastic pastime for the whole family to get involved that are perfect to amuse the kids for hours, as well as save costs on buying presents for birthdays or purchasing decorations for the home.
Celebrate and promote crafts across the UK for the entirety of May with the hundreds of events taking place up and down the country; or simply show your gratitude in the comfort of your own home by trying some of these exciting ideas.
Sunshine Summer Bracelet
This craft looks quite complicated and complex but in fact it is really easy to make and it is the perfect accessory to any summer outfit this season.
The glass beads are bright and colourful but you can always use your favourite colour to suit your own taste.
And better still, it only takes 30 minutes to make!
Summer Fruits Necklace
This craft is an ideal present for the female relatives in your family!
It can be a cute gift for your mum this summer whether it is for her birthday or just to show how much you care; or be a gorgeous accessory for yourself to embellish any fashion trend.
The design takes around 45 minutes to make but you can pick whatever coloured beads and style you want, so the piece will be individual to you!
Fruity Tablecloth Weights
Add a touch of colour and flair to your dining garnishes this summer by making some fruity tablecloth weights.
Many Brits take advantage of the glorious sunshine and soaring temperatures this season by eating outdoors alfresco, so why not decorate the garden table with some fun and interesting ornaments.
And practically, they could really come in handy when a gust of wind flies by so the cloth isn’t swept off the table with all the content with it!
