25 Summer DIY Projects To Get Your Home In The Mood For Sunshine.

#6. Sidewalk Chalk

One of the most fun free summer activities is drawing on the sidewalk with some chalk. But instead of buying a brand new set of chalk, try making your own! You can use a plastic candle mold or ice cream mold to make your chalk a unique shape.

#7. Sweet Tea Popsicles

If you love sweet tea, then try turning it into a tasty desert for hot summer days. Just pour some sweet tea into a popsicle mold and you're good to go. Or if you don't have one, you could substitute with an ice cube mold!

#8. Retool a $2 Tin

If you have a plain tin box or metal container hanging around, repurpose it into a handsome holder. This will also make a great Father's Day gift if you don't have one already!

#9. Party Pinata

Make a paper-mache hive for just $10! First, you'll need to inflate a 24-inch-wide balloon. Next, you'll cover it up with paper mache made out of newspaper, water, and school glue. Once you're done, you can use a pin to pop the balloon and then you can fill it with candy! Fill the whole thing with honey-colored paper streamers and voila!
