Tutorial Tuesday - 7 Beachy Keen DIY projects

Beach Canvas DIY from UnoDosTresChic

Welcome back to Tutorial Tuesday! I don't know about you but I have a case of summer-brain and am already counting the days to the weekend! Here are some fun beach-themed projects from all over to get your imagination flowing. Click the link below each photo to visit the matching tutorial.

Today's theme was inspired by a cute knotted bracelet DIY that Etsy shared for How-To Tuesday, another great source for all kinds of fun projects.

Am I the only one who has a cheap flip-flop "blow out" on a regular basis? This braided strap upcycle has me actually looking forward to the next one.

And this Towel Bag seems easy enough that even I can sew it. While I have some crafty genes, sewing is my kryptonite. It also seems like a great way to re-cycle those perfectly-good-if-a-bit-worn bath towels that have started fraying on the edges. (I only need so many "dust rags").

I love this simple (and simply yummy) idea for infusing and transporting your favorite beverage. The recipe is for sangria but fruit infused seltzer or water is tasty too (and good for public beaches that don't allow alcohol).


Lets end our trip with some ideas for the treasures you've collected. The Dude keeps bringing home shells and I keep meaning to try Martha's shell candles project. Alternatively, check your craft store for some picture perfect shells while you are picking up the candle making supplies.

This Driftwood Fish sign just makes me smile! I think I am going to see if the Dude want's to make one for his Grandpa's birthday this fall. I would look cool next to his antique "Ocean House" sign and remind us all of lazy summer days at the beach.

Do you have any favorite coastal projects or recipies? If so, please share! I'm always adding to my crafty to-do list.
