Every season of the year has special holidays, events, and themes. Summer certainly is filled with lots of fun activities! As summer is winding down and we are looking forward to the cooler days of autumn, most of us are still not quite ready to let summer go so easily.
Here is a fun collection of summer pineapple crafts and recipes that you can do with your family, or just by yourself, which will surround you with the beauty of the remaining days of summer. Fill your home with pineapple décor and the sweet smell of pineapple cupcakes or cookies, or make something you love . . . like this adorable handcrafted pineapple necklace. Have fun and celebrate all the days of summer!
Every month we create a collection or round-up of seasonal crafts and recipes for the RUBY magazine and blog, so I thought I would share this one with you today. If you have any ideas or suggestions for the September round-up or if you would like us to include your craft or recipe in an upcoming collection, just leave me a comment and we’ll be in touch! Also, be sure to check out the August issue of RUBY magazine on the RUBY blog for all the other creative and inspirational articles by writers from around the world.
What would a summer collection be without Mason Jars? They are everywhere, in just about every design and theme you can imagine. These cute Pineapple Mason Jar Night Lights were created by Elsie and Emma at A Beautiful Mess. Stop by their blog for the complete tutorial for making these sweet night lights.
This beautiful necklace was created by Rebecca at The Crafted Sparrow and she makes it looks so easy, we just might give a try here at Vintage Mama’s Cottage!
It is made from Sculpey clay and spray paint – you can find the complete tutorial on Rebecca’s’ blog, The Crafted Sparrow.
One of the easiest and inexpensive ways to bring a new look to your home is simply to find a cute printable like the Free Pineapple Printable from LiveLaughRowe, print it out and frame it. Super simple and really frugal, especially if you already have a frame you can use.
Add some spray paint to an old frame and pop in this free pineapple design and you’ve got instant cuteness for your home. This print would be perfect in a kitchen, a porch, or really anywhere you want a touch of summer whimsy. You can find this free printable at LiveLaughRowe.
If you love to make cut-out cookies and decorate them during the holiday season, you just might miss all that fun during the summer. Well, here’s a solution to your dilemma!
These sweet pineapple cookies are not only cute, but they look yummy, too. What a fun project with the kids on a summer afternoon when it’s too hot outside, you can make cookies together with a pineapple theme. Get the recipe on The First Year Blog.
Here’s an idea that is not only easy and inexpensive, it is really versatile, too. A drop cloth with citrus stencils would be perfect for a picnic blanket, but think of all the other possibilities!
This same technique could be used to make a cover for a picnic table; or with smaller stencils, this would made really cute outdoor pillows for your patio or porch. Find all of the instructions for making a Drop Cloth Picnic Blanket on the Brit.co website.
