At the aquarium, I have always been mesmerized by the jellyfish tank. They float around as if they’re made of paper and seem so beautiful. With summer right around the corner, a lot of us will be heading to the beach. Instead of worrying about jellyfish stings, why not make these colorful jellyfish crafts instead?

DIY Pincushions

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I don’t know if I need as many pincushions as I would like to make, but they are seriously addicting. There are so many adorable pincushion crafts out there that I probably make pincushions more often than I actually use them. Pincushions are a wonderful way to use up scrap fabric and they make great gifts for your crafty friends. Here are some of my favorites.

Wrist Pincushion

This is one of my own creations, made from some fabric left over from a failed clothing project. I’m so glad I got to use the adorable elephant print anyway, and I love using this handy pincushion whenever I can.

If there’s one thing that reminds me of summer more than anything else, it’s that first bite of a perfectly ripe and juicy watermelon. I have so many memories of camping and barbecues where I ate way too much watermelon with my dinner. In addition to their delicious sweetness, the bright colors of watermelons make for the perfect summer craft projects!

Use Those Fabric Scraps!

Check out our Craft Trends board on Pinterest!

I’m horrible at sewing, but I love shopping for fabric. I also love grabbing cute fat quarters at the last minute when I’m fabric shopping. It’s a great way to feed your stash when you don’t have a specific project in mind. If you do sew quite a bit, chances are you have some scrap fabric lying around because it is often way too painful to throw pretty fabric away. Here are some wonderful projects for hoarders of scrap fabric and fat quarters.

No Sew Hair Bows
