It's a new season, and the perfect one to create some of your own cool summer decor. Put materials like yarn or wood aside; for the hotter weather, think either natural or cool-shaded. Plant or flower-infused DIYs are becoming more popular, as well as several concrete creations. And since the weather will permits, it's the perfect opportunity to take on outdoor DIY projects using messier materials like plants and cement.

Flowers are perfect decorations for a brightly lit summer home, for both interior and exterior. The rose petal honey recipe by Gardenista is not only a sweet treat, but also colorful and fun for when those summer days when you have guests over. Flower-infused ice cubes are also great visuals for summer parties.

Concrete, with its cool shades of gray, has a cooling effect in hot weather. They make great pots for plants and even candle holders or clocks.
