Summer is well and truly here and we’re loving the warmer weather! Whether you’ve booked a holiday somewhere hot or are lucky enough to have beautiful weather at home, you’re going to need lots of colourful summer accessories.

We love creating our own accessories in summer when we can include lots of brightly coloured elements! From upcycling last year’s sandals to decorating our beach bags and adding embroidery to summer hats. We can’t wait to get creative with our designs!

Our favourite handmade summer accessories are:

Beach Bags

Southern Curls and Pearls

Beach bags are an essential summer accessory! We’re loving the idea for upcycling woven beach bags with pom poms! They can be easily attached with a glue gun and are really easy to make with pom pom makers. Why not try adding lots of multi coloured pom poms for an eye-catching design?

Sandal Embellishments

Sandals are really easy to embellish! We love to add on extra fabrics, tassels, glitter or even extra pom poms. There’s no limit to what you can add on to create your perfect summer sandal.

Straw Hats



Straw hats are the perfect on-holiday fashion item! Plus, they are really easy to embroider using thick string. Why not personalise with your name like the below designs? Make sure you have a thick needle and string and mark out your name beforehand with a sharpie pen.

Tassel Earrings
