You can get them at the Dollar Store for a dollar each, and then use one to make this amazing wreath for your summer decorating. Just roll the pool noodle into a circle, tape it together and then decorate it however you want. You can even cut additional noodles to make various shapes on your wreath.
2. Fresh Summer Flower Garland
If you grow your own flowers, you can take cuts of those and create this stunning fresh flower garland to add summer charm to any area of your home. If you don’t grow your own flowers, stop by the grocery store or farmer’s market and pick up a few flowers or you could use silk flowers if you want the garland to last for several years. It’s pretty easy to put together and instantly adds summertime charm.
3. Colorful Summer Grapevine Wreath
Turn your front door into a beautiful display of summer with this gorgeous wreath. The best thing about this one is that it takes only a few minutes to put together.

Add moss ribbon and some glitter and you’ve got a beautiful display that will only take you about an hour to complete.
4. Summer Flower Chalkboard Crates
These chalkboard crates are perfect for any time of the year and when you add summer flowers, they’re even better. You can make whatever message you want and then add your favorite summer plants.

5. Painted Wine Bottle Vases
You can instantly add summer floral beauty to any room when you just put your chosen flowers in a vase.

8. Easy DIY Summer Plank Wreath
I love decorating with beach themes during summer but that doesn’t mean that I don’t also incorporate flowers wherever I can. I adore this plank wreath, which is pretty easy to make and has a wonderful nautical theme with flip flops, rope and anchors. You can also add in a few flowers to make it even lovelier. Choose flowers that you would see at the beach or anything that you have in your yard to give it a nice floral touch.
9. Festive Paper Flower Summer Wreath
You don’t necessarily have to use fresh or silk flowers to get a great floral effect. You can also make your flowers out of paper or just cut out silhouettes to add décor. This wreath is a great example, and it’s one of the easiest to make. The flowers on this one are made from doilies, which are really inexpensive. The entire thing could cost you less than $5, depending on where you find your supplies.
10. Colorful Colander Hanging Planters
An old metal colander painted a bright yellow, or any other summer-ish color you want, is perfect for adding a bit of floral charm to your home or porch. Once your colander paint has dried, just use it as a planter to add your favorite summer flowers. You can hang these inside or out and they’re the perfect way to add a bit of floral charm.
11. Easy Summer Bicycle Wreath
Nothing says summer more than a bicycle, right? That’s why I love this bicycle wreath. It’s so warm and welcoming and also gives you the perfect opportunity to show off some of your favorite flowers. Just tuck a few blooms into the bicycle basket or you could place them strategically around the wreath form to add even more floral charm.
12. Summer Bloom Wooden Sign
Wooden signs are wonderful for decorating and this one has lovely summer flowers on it, making it perfect for summer decorating. The sign itself has a great rustic appeal and the flowers are bright and cheery, just perfect for summer. You can get this one on Etsy for under $40 if you don’t want to make it yourself.

You could also choose fabric with a summery print, but I’m sort of partial to the bandana. Plus, it’s an easy and really quick way to add a nice summer wreath to the front door.
14. Summery Flower Curtain Tiebacks
On this one, you can use lace to create your flowers or use actual flowers if you prefer. These tiebacks are so very easy to make and will instantly perk up the room and give it a nice warm summery appeal. If you’re using lace or another fabric, you just create the flower by layering it and hot glue in between layers. It’s so easy and won’t take you longer than half an hour to complete a set or two.
15. Easy DIY Centerpiece
This centerpiece idea is gorgeous and so very easy to put together. You just need a wire basket of some sort, a few glass vases or bottles and your chosen flowers. Again, daisies are so perfect for summer but you could use any brightly colored flower. This has such a wonderful farmhouse appeal to it and would be perfect for the dining room table.
16. Hand Painted Daisy Mason Jars
What better way to add some summer charm than with mason jars? And if those mason jars just happen to have daisies painted on them, well that’s even better. These are really easy to do and will give you that great farmhouse look if that’s what you’re after. Mason jar projects are my favorite and this one is definitely at the top of my list.
17. DIY Clay Flowers
If you don’t have any real flowers, or just prefer not to decorate with them, you can easily make these DIY clay flowers and use them for all of your summer decorating. Incidentally, this is a great project for kids, as well. Choose clay in bright colors and create whatever flowers you want. Then use your clay flowers for wreaths, centerpieces, to decorate picture frames or whatever you want.
18. Summer Perfect DIY Glitter Vases
How you display your flowers is important if you want to bring some of that summer beauty indoors. These DIY glitter vases are so very easy to create and give you the perfect place for all of those summer blooms. You start with plain glass vases, or bottles, and then Mod Podge to give them glittery appeal. These are also great for wedding décor!
19. Summery Flower Pillow
Adding throw pillows to your couch, chairs or even patio furniture is a wonderful way to change your décor just a bit and add splashes of color. When those pillows have beautiful summer flowers on them, you can instantly bring a bit of summer into your home. I love this pillow I found on Etsy that has loads of summer roses on it. It’s handmade and under $40 and would be the perfect touch of summer for your couch or loveseat.
20. Paper Mache Floral Letters
These paper mache floral letters are perfect as a table decoration or they can grace the mantel as well. Paper mache is always such a fun project and these letters are so gorgeous. I think a monogram type letter would be great for the mantel or you could create any number of messages for your tables. These would also be wonderful wedding table decorations.
21. Rope Wrapped Summer Centerpiece
I love wrapping vases and jars in rope. They make such gorgeous centerpieces and when you add a few summer blooms, they’re even more gorgeous.

You can also alternate your succulents with smaller blooms from your flower garden.
23. Summery Baby’s Breath Flower Arrangement
Baby’s breath is used to create such beautiful flower arrangements, particularly for weddings. You can also use it all on its own to create a stunning summer arrangement for weddings or home décor. Just add your baby’s breath to a mason jar and maybe even embellish the jar with burlap or twine.
24. Numbered Floral Centerpiece
This one is really for weddings – to number the tables at the reception – but I think it would work just as well for home décor. You could do your house numbers in this style to dress up your front porch or deck. All you really have to do is choose a potted flower and then add your number to it. Larger plants work beautifully on the porch or deck to add summer beauty and display those house numbers at the same time.
25. Easy DIY Dried Flower Candles
You can create stunning candles by sticking dried flowers to them and then dipping them in clear wax. This is a great way to get those blooms inside without actually having to worry about keeping live plants healthy. Plus, you can display your flower candles in any number of candlestick or jar options and have them all over the house.
26. Quick Mason Jar Centerpiece
Again, mason jars are wonderful and they give you so many options for displaying your favorite summer blooms. This centerpiece in particular shouldn’t take you more than a few minutes to create. Just paint the mason jar a bright color – yellow is perfect for summer – and then add embellishment with burlap or fabric tied on with twine. Pop in your daisies or other summer flowers and you’re all set.
27. Floating Paper Flower Wreath
A few paper roses and some string or twine are all you need to create these lovely paper flower wreaths that seem to float above your vases.

Whether you use real or silk flowers, this DIY summer floral art is perfect for bringing a bit of summer into your home. I love the gold frame, although white would also look beautiful.

29. Summer Floral Garland And Welcome Banner
You can add instant charm to your front porch or entry with this floral banner that also serves as a welcome sign. If you want it indoors and don’t really want the welcome message, just don’t do that part. The floral garland itself is stunning and will really give you some summery blooms to decorate any doorway or window.
30. 10 Minute Floral Halo
So, this quick and easy floral halo is meant to be worn, but I thought it would also make a beautiful decoration. You can use it to surround larger candles or vases on the coffee table or just hang it on the wall by itself. It’s pretty easy to make and simply screams summer. And, since it doesn’t take long, you could do several of these and have matching floral rings for centerpiece candles.
31. DIY Floral Hanging Frame
Here’s another great frame idea for displaying your pictures and adding a bit of flora to your home this summer. You can get a wire frame with hanger at any craft store, or fashion one yourself from an embroidery hoop and some chicken wire. Then, add your pictures and whatever silk or fresh flowers you want to adorn it and hang it up!
32. Fresh Or Silk Flower Napkin Rings
If you have a special occasion coming up, I would suggest using fresh flowers for these easy to make napkin rings. Of course, silk will last much longer so if you’re just looking to add some summer charm to the dining room, I would use silk so that they last all season. You just glue or sew the flowers onto elastic ponytail holders and you’re all set.
33. Beauty And The Beast Inspired Flower Cloche
You don’t have to use a red rose to create your very own Beauty and the Beast flower cloche. You can use any summer flower that you have.

It’s a beautiful statement piece that can serve as a table or mantel decoration or even a centerpiece – and it’s perfect for little girls’ summer birthday parties!
34. Flower String Wall Hanging
This garland like hanging allows you to display different types of flowers and would be perfect for adding a little summer flora to the kitchen. Just choose your flowers and string them together in different sections. Then string all your sections onto twine, burlap, string or even a branch from the yard to create a hanging display that adds instant summer charm.
35. DIY Flower Petal Stained Glass
I really love these stained glass panels and they’re perfect for adding some floral décor to your home. You actually press your flowers onto transparent contact paper, which makes them very flexible.

36. Upcycled Tissue Box Flower Vase
How creative is this upcycled tissue box vase? I love that it’s an upcycling project and that it creates such a beautiful vase for displaying your summer blooms.

It’s rather long too so it makes the perfect centerpiece for the dining room or kitchen table.
37. Flowery Flip Flop Summer Wreath
I love this summer wreath that incorporates flip flops and flowers! It just screams warm weather and it’s so easy to make. You can start with a wreath form or make your own from a pool noodle.

This entire project is so easy and depending on the wreath form you use, can be done for around $5 or so.
38. Farmhouse Style Metal Cup Vase
A metal cup or mug is perfect for creating a great farmhouse flower display. You can often find these old metal cups at thrift stores and flea markets for a dollar or so each. Then, use them to create a nice little floral display for the coffee table or dining room. This one is really easy and can be completely customized depending on the types of flowers that you want to show off.
39. Gorgeous DIY Mason Jar Centerpiece With Ranunculus
Ranunculus has a beautiful yellow color that is perfect for summer. This mason jar centerpiece is also perfect, mostly because it’s made from a mason jar but equally so because of the color and style. Wrap your mason jar in craft paper and then use twine or burlap to accent the center. You can spray paint the jar and even add different colors of other flowers to give it a nice rounded look.
40. Easy Hanging Flowers
What better way to decorate any room than to simply hang flowers? And by hang flowers, I mean hanging them from the ceiling.

This is perfect for summer party decorating or to just add a little floral flair to your home this season.
41. Yarn And Felt Flower Wreath
This yarn wreath with felt flowers is beautiful and the perfect way to add some summer to your home.

An old fashioned clothesline is a great way to add some summer charm to your décor. When you wrap that clothesline around a wreath form and add flowers, it’s an even better way.

46. Upcycled Milk Jug Water Lilies
An empty milk jug gives you loads of upcycling possibilities. Take these plastic water lilies for instance. You can make several of these with a couple of empty milk jugs and some acrylic paints. I love these and they’re the perfect way to add a little summer coloring to your home or garden.
47. $12 Mason Jar Centerpiece
Here is another wonderful centerpiece idea using mason jars and an old crate, and this one can be made for around $12 or so. You even get to make the crate for this one, so you don’t need to have one on hand.
