You may have seen this trend on TikTok—and it is totally adorable. All you need is a wooden box that will fit your fave swimsuits and some paint. After you gather your materials, decorate your new bikini box with waves, tropical flowers and allll the sunset hues. Bonus points if you glue on some shells, stickers or glitter.

Calling all beach girlies! Collect some shells during your next beach day, then snag a necklace chain or string and any extra beads you want to add. All you need to do is carefully put a hole in the shell (use a thumbtack or ask your dad to drill a small hole) and thread it onto a necklace.

3. Create a cute summer bucket list

Not only will a bucket list help you keep track of all the fab activities you want to try this summer, but it can be a super fun craft project. Gather a few of your besties and a piece of poster paper, markers, glitter and stickers...and start brainstorming!

Helloooo, DIY garden decor! You'll need a wooden rod, stick or piece of driftwood, some twine, beads/seashells and string. Add your beads or shells to the string as if you were making friendship bracelets. You can also add bells to your string so the chime will ring. Then, individually tie each strand to your stick. Now, take a long piece of twine and tie either side to each end of the stick. You can hang your windchime on your window for some super pretty decor. 

5. Paint tote bags
