10 Summery Projects to While an Afternoon Away

Summer this year is all kinds of different for most all of us here in the Northern Hemisphere and as I was looking for a fun craft or two in the archives to inspire some new ideas, I ended up collecting a few "summery" projects along the way that I've loved from the past here on Poppytalk . Ideas that are inspiring all sorts of possibilities. So I thought maybe you might be looking for a few things yourself, to while an afternoon away, or maybe inspire new ideas too. Check out some summery projects from the archives below.
