Easy Midsummer-DIY:s

This is one of my favorite Midsummer-DIY:s – a homemade table Midsummer pole!

We cut pieces of round bar and glued them onto each other like a cross (Niklas first carved out a piece in each of the poles so that they would fit). Then we fastened the pole to a square block and painted it green. We wrapped red, yellow and light green ribbon around the whole thing.

The wreaths are made out of pipe cleaner plus felt flowers. The pole is topped off with a string of flags.

Above an Åland Islands-version with Midsummer crowns instead of wreaths. Those too are made out of pipe cleaners, and ribbon.

I love recycling, and I love a touch of nostalgia in my interior decorating! I made a long table runner from pieces of lace, that looks great on any Midsummer table.

Just add a bunch of bouquets of flowers in small vases and you’re good to go!

On years when it’s raining I compensate for the bad weather by hanging up lace curtains in front of the windows. It adds that special touch of days gone by that any good Midsummer needs! 🙂

If we’re outside, I hang up bunting or flags like these ones made out of old embroidered sheets and table cloths. It’s the perfect project for upcycling cloths that are stained or have holes in them. And they get a new life, getting to look pretty and add to the festive feeling!
