Anchor Bracelet {adinserter Middle Post Ad}

I’m not sure what it is about summer time, but it sure increases my love for all things nautical. I can’t get enough anchors! Art work, jewelry, throw pillows, bring it on! I really like this bracelet because it looks a little high end to me, and the thread is an unexpected element that lets you add your personal touch! Make two or three and stack them on wrist, or just one by itself would be cute! Happy DIY-ing!

It’s never too late in the season to protect yourself from those pesky bugs – specifically mosquitos. Man, I hate those guys! We went for a walk by the river the other evening, and were eaten alive! Boo.

I’ve never been a fan of the way most citronella candles you can buy at the store look. I think they’re pretty cheesy. They already don’t smell the best, so why not create something that at least looks nice? Here is an amazing DIY from Glamorous Bride. The tutorial is not just for the outside of the candle, but you actually make the citronella as well! Love!

4 Summer Shirt Cut Out Ideas

Love these DIY ideas as much as we do? Stay up to date on our latest findings by liking our facebook page at Home and Heart DIY Facebook!

It’s so easy to get sick of the clothes in the closet! It seems like lately, I’m trying on 9 different outfits before I feel I can leave the house! (I hate it when that happens…).

Here are four easy DIY’s to spruce up the clothes you’ve already got without spending any money!

1. The Backless Tee

This is definitely the most simple of the four. Take an old tshirt, and cut a narrow triangle section out of the back. (CAUTION: don’t cut too high up, unless you don’t want to be able to wear a bra!) Tie the two ends you’ve just created together and there you go!

2. The Striped Back Tee

On the back of a tshirt, begin cutting slits about two to three inches apart. Leave at least three inches on the bottom. After you’ve cut your slits, cut the hemline off of the bottom of the shirt. Proceed to cut that into two and half to three inch sections. You’ll use those fabric pieces to wrap around the sections of the tee you cut. You can throw a stitch or two in there to secure the piece, or (like me) you can use a dab of hot glue.

3. The Diamond Back Tee

This looks much more complicated than it actually is. The most important part is marking off the sections you don’t want to cut. Trace a diamond shape on the center of the back of a tshirt (you can do just about any shape you’d like here!). The mark a one to two inch border around the back of the shirt. Again, this is where we’ll stop cutting, so it’s really up to you where you want this to be. Take a pair of scissors and begin cutting narrow strips in between the diamond shape and border. Do this all the way around the shirt.

4. The Bow Back Tee

This DIY does require some sewing. It’s a more complicated version of the striped back tee. Use a scrap fabric you’ve got lying around that  you like. Cut it into three by five inch strips. (The amount of these you cut will depend on how far down the shirt you want to go). Cut the same amount of one by two inch strips. Next, cut a section out of the back of the tshirt. I’d make sure it was no more than six inches wide and no less than four inches. Head to the sewing machine! Sew in the bigger sections on each side of the section you cut out. After you’re finished with that, take the smaller fabric pieces, wrap it around the center of the bigger fabric pieces, creating the bow shape. Throw a stitch or two in there to secure the middle piece (or use hot glue again!)

My feet can get pretty bad, especially in the summer time! This is a great tip that I’d never seen before but I’ve seen over and over again on the internet. I’m definitely going to give it a try!

Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind), 1/4 c vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak your feet for 10 minutes. Remove your feet, and wipe off the dead skin with a dry towel.
