This summer I have been enjoying scouting around for DIY Home Decor Ideas. If you have been here a while, you know I love my crafting sessions with my mother and daughter each month. There is just something about creating something that comes from the heart that helps take my mind away.
I especially love making decor items for the home. While I get some of my inspiration from Pinterest, I also have seen some great ideas in crafting books. Many of the DIY crafts in these books are for kids and adults ages 10 and up.
There are tutorials on everything from card making, to lettering to mason jars. Great for any time of year, I have been wanting to share with you my thoughts on each. I received most of these books free to review or were included in a conference swag bag.

From garden ideas like a mason jar bird feeder to outdoor wall sconces, this book has a ton of ideas. There are also sections on using mason jars in the kitchen and lots of cute unique storage ideas. The mason jar bell idea was one of my favorites, also makes a great end of summer gift for teens or relatives.
