This summer it’s time to embrace your inner DIY guru. Remember, DIY projects are fun, and with proper instructions are fairly easy to complete. We’ve rounded up five of our favorite outdoor summer DIYs that will spruce up your yard in no time. Take the classroom outside with I Spy Diy’s flower Pot Chalkboard. Her adorable flower pot can be used indoors or out. Not sure what to do with all of those adorable plastic figurines? Why don’t you create a planter a la Ps I Made This. If you’re looking for something bigger to tackle this weekend, try creating a tire swing for the young ones. This childhood staple never gets old. Be sure to check out M&J for all of your DIY needs.

Jenni of I SPY DIY creates some of our favorite fashion forward DIY projects. We are constantly amazed by each of her projects and often yearn for more. Since it is rhinestone week here at M&J we felt this was the perfect time to show off I SPY DIY’s latest decorated denim DIY tutorial. We were excited to show you how I SPY DIY updated her daisy dukes. We adore this look and all of I SPY DIY’s posts. Click on the images for the full tutorial.
Don’t forget we are having our rhinestone sale on 4/29 and 4/30 and we’re offering 10% Off Swarovski flatback and hotfix rhinestones.
We love a great standout piece of jewelry. During the winter, a great way to add style to your layers is adding a great statement necklace over everything. These statement necklaces are a great way to add some glitz and creativity to your everyday wardrobe!
