Crafts can take a back seat during the summer but if it’s raining, too hot to go outside, or you’re heading into winter on the other side of the globe, these recent cute Youtube DIYs will let you enjoy the fun parts of summer at home.
Yeppug has shared a free printable to make a mix and match set of animal ice creams. You can colour them in yourself or download a full colour version and they’d be great for games, cards and journaling.
There’s a lot of cute ice cream and popsicle origami tutorials but Hello Origami have gone the extra step with paper squishies! These look so fun in all the different colours/flavours and can double as a fidget toy.
Give your desk a summer refresh with these cute pencil cups inspired by Tuxedo Sam, Hello Kitty and My Melody. They look so sweet and you could always use coloured paper if you don’t have felt.
If you can bear to turn the oven on, these Watermelon Sugar Cookies at Sugar Spun Run are sure to impress. This has a really detailed recipe to keep you right and you probably have most of the ingredients at home already.
Draw So Cute is currently working on a Summer Art Series and you can learn how to draw lots of cute things including food, fruits and Pusheen.
Polymer clay fans will want to try these adorable melting bear ice-creams by Creative Rachy. Look at the face on the pink one.
Or embrace the rain and make a miniature animal umbrella with polymer clay and resin at PolymomoTea. I would quite like a full size one myself.
