15 Crafty ideas to add colour to your garden this summer

If you are like us, you won't have a lot of free time on summer (after all we always find fun projects to revamp our houses, are taking the kids on adventures, etc)... but if you do find yourself craving some "me time", we have put together these wonderful and creative ideas from all over the net for you to get inspired!

Grab your Life of Colour paint pens - or any other art supply you have - and add colour to your garden and home!
