I’m so excited to have one of my favorite bloggers with us today! Doreen’s blog is Hymns and Verses and she never fails to inspire me…you guys are gonna love her. Today, she’s giving us some amazing Nautical DIY ideas!
Hi, my name is Doreen and my blog is called Hymns and Verses. I’m so happy that Robin asked if I could share here at All Things Heart and Home while she is on vacation! One thing to know about me – I love a DIY challenge! A lot of my home decor is DIY, which is a real money saver and also brings a great deal of satisfaction when you complete a project!
In the spirit of the summertime season, here are a few easy DIY projects that I’ve put together on my blog to bring a bit of nautical to your home. If you want to find the directions for each one, just click the link below the photo.
First up is this Ballard Designs inspired rope knot. It took me a few tries, but I was able to recreate this for so much less. Here’s a look at the Ballard version –

And, here’s my version.

Another easy way to bring the nautical look to your home is by covering a few old books with maps. If you don’t remember how you covered your school books with paper bags back in the olden days, I’ve got you “covered”!! It’s really easy!

Of course, adding shells and star fish are an obvious choice. Here I turned a small cloche upside down and filled it with different seashells and then I carefully flipped it over on the rattan and tin plate. A cloche filled with seashells!
One of my favorite summertime projects is this collage frame made from Dollar Tree frames and rope trim. It’s full of fun, family summertime memories and is easy to make.
