If you’re looking to breathe new life into your home this summer, there’s no better theme to pick then sailing-inspired decor.
Red, white, and blue mix perfectly with natural elements like rope, driftwood, sand, and seashells to create a chic nautical theme that will make your mind wander to a sunny beach.
I’ve been researching DIY nautical decorating ideas. Mostly because I’d like to try some myself and I’m encouraging you to do the same if you like them as much as I do.
I have a generous list of nautical craft ideas and some of them are extremely easy to make so no need to be a pro if you’d like to try your hand at this. Just start with something simple like the starfish sharpie mugs.
I’m sure you’ll catch the craft bug pretty quick!
