Summer Solstice Craft Ideas 

Summer Solstice, aka the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, falls on Tuesday, June 21st, 2022. 


I think both the Summer & Winter Solstice are magical days where it seems like something magical could happen, if you have the right spell or realistically, a vivid imagination. 


You may recall my Winter Solstice craft blog post a while back? Well, it's time the Summer Solstice gets her own craft post-round-up.

Prior to airdrying, I punched a hole {with the bottom part of a paint brush} if I wanted to hang the shells & tail. I ended up, hanging the tail & placing the shells under a glass cloche. 


I painted the shells with craft paint {from Target} colors called Sea Foam & Sand Dune.
