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.
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!
