Bring a bit of the beach to your home with a shell planter. This craft is perfect for displaying small plants like succulents or air plants, adding a coastal vibe to your decor. Large seashells can be used as unique planters, either filled with potting soil for succulents or simply holding air plants. The natural beauty of the shells combined with the greenery creates a stunning focal point. These shell planters are versatile and can be placed on windowsills, shelves, or as part of a centerpiece, bringing a touch of the ocean indoors and reminding you of summer days at the beach.

4. Boho Side Table

A boho side table can add a unique and eclectic touch to your living space. Repurposing an old stool or small table and adding decorative elements such as paint, stencils, tassels, and fabric/trim can transform it into a stylish piece of furniture. Bohemian designs often incorporate mandalas, lace, geometric shapes, and nature-inspired motifs, making each table a work of art. This project is perfect for expressing your creativity and personal style. The result is a standout piece that adds personality and charm to any room, making it an eye-catching addition to your summer decor.
