5 crafty diy projects for summer

I'm really looking forward to the Christmas break when (fingers and toes) I will have a little time to do the type of crafting that's just for me, oh and preparing the type of crafting that's just for 2012 Brisbane Brown Owls ;)

I'm planning on spending a lot of time with the ocean over my break so Resurrection Fern's little urchin crochet covered sea stone tutorial for The Purl Bee above is perfect beach crafting :)

The cutest softie-making project: Jodie's turtles on whipup, they're so sweet and look so easy (and earth-friendly if you make them with eco felt!!)

Got a hula hoop? And some old t-shirts? My little and somewhat bare unit could definitely do with one of these hula hoop rugs but could I do without my hula hoop while making it?

Sweetest paper craft project for origami lovers, I'd opt for some colourful old magazines or junk mail making these Japanese Kusudama flowers.

And for some Summer fun I love these jersey knit bracelets by V and Co. I imagine you could whip up some pretty cool ones with old t-shirts too.

That's five crafty projects I love and if you're on Pinterest or Twitter you can watch my little list grow. Check out the Brown Owls Project Options Pinterest Board or follow me on Twitter.

Got a favourite crafty diy? Leave me a comment, I'd love to check it out :)

That hula hoop rug is just a genius idea ... I must remember this and save all our old t-shirts. I'm having a little festive tutorial and giveaway tomorrow and really hope you will be able to join in.

I so love those crochet pebbles! And I've always meant to try the Japanese flowers - hopefully for this Christmas!
