Five holiday makes

5 things to make for your beach holiday

You'll love these easy ideas for when you're lounging by the shore this summer

1. Flower flip-flops

Adorn flip-flops with floral embellishments to create the perfect holiday wardrobe staple. You'll need to dab glue onto the underside of fabric flowers and adhere them to your footwear before stepping out in style.

2. Decoupage a tote bag

A beach holiday means lots of adventures in the sunshine, so it's a great idea to have a bag in hand to carry all your essentials. Decoupaging your tote with patterned fabric featuring your favourite design is a lovely way to add personality, taking your make from bland to fab.

3. Seashell mirror

Looking and feeling good is super-important on holiday. Check your reflection whether you're at the beach or the bar with a beautifully-decorated handheld mirror adorned with seashells to keep checking? A good adhesive and tiny shells is all you'll need – try to mix and match the shells too for a striking design.

4. Embellished shades

Protect your eyes from the harsh UV rays with a pair of shades. What's better is that you can add sparkle to them with the use of sequins and glitter. Just place craft glue to your adornments and stick them onto the frame.

5. Stamped Sarong

Instead of buying a patterned sarong, why not use stamps and fabric dye on plain material in a variety of designs to create a stand-out piece? Stamped flowers and cocktails will add a beachy feel to your creation and turn heads while you're on holiday.
