Nautical DIY Crafts/Decorating

Today's guest post is from Lauren of My Life as a Plate.

Hi! I am Lauren from My Life As A Plate, I am so honored to be guest posting for Kate today, her blog is one of the first blogs I started following. I also love all things nautical and her blog is responsible for many of my nautical purchases.

I am a huge fan of DIY projects and decorating my home for all holidays and seasons. From October to April our home is decorated for each and every holiday. Once June arrives I get antsy to decorate the house for the summer. I love to add a nautical look to the home, especially living away from the water it reminds me of being at the beach ( and trying to forget that it is seven hours away).

Lately I have found so many great DIY Nautical Projects on Pinterest. I cannot wait to get started on adding some nautical touches to my home for summer!

This is such a great nautical wreath, perfect to leave up all summer, and made with a foam wreath, wrapped in ribbon or yarn:

How adorable are these nautical napkin rings made from wooden drapery rings:

These nautical hurricanes would make a great centerpiece. I love that adding roping completely changes the look:

I just love the nautical rope look for summer:

So far I have decorated my own hurricane with a nautical touch:

I just added sand, shells, flower petals, and corks.

I cannot wait to get started on my other Nautical DIY projects!
