DIYing in the Great Outdoors

1

After a particularly chilly and snowy winter, there is no  better time to head outside and enjoy the great outdoors than now. We’re at a pivotal point in spring when summer is just around the corner, and the possibility of adventures is just outside of our doorsteps! But what about our DIYs? How do we still get projects done and stretch our creative muscles when we’re outside?

Photography- The great outdoors offer an unmatched canvas for future DIYs that need photos. Take photos to use in upcoming DIYs to make them even more personal!

Sailboat Watercolor by Etsy ArtistPainting- Watercolors are great for carrying around because they aren’t as messy as acrylics and oil paints. They’re great for painting outdoor scene s like flowers in a park or a beautiful oceanscapes.

Organized Embroidery FlossEmbroidery- Embroidery is a precise hobby that often takes a number of different types of thread. Pick a pattern that only uses a few colors to make it more mobile.

Yarn Organized by ColorKnitting- Knitting is a great hobby that helps to relieve stress, but summer isn’t usually the best time for knitting new scarves. Make yourself an open weave cardigan or cover-up instead!

Bracelet making may seem hard on a sandy beach, but our tip is to leave the beads at home. Focus on friendship bracelets for a soothing summer activity.
