April showers bring May flowers, but they can also force you to waste a perfectly good afternoon indoors. Don’t get us wrong, we’re all for a bright and colorful Spring, but sometimes rainy days bring us down and with summertime just around the corner, no one wants to feel sad or bored just because it’s raining outside. Our solution! We’ve complied a list of fun DIY projects to keep yourself busy and sane during rainy days in Orlando.
Let’s face it, it’s going to be raining quite a bit over the next month. Not all pups like to go out when it’s wet, so why not make a raincoat so they can still enjoy walks and playtime in our dog park? Follow this link for a simple step-by-step guide to making your pup an adorable little all-weather outfit. The best part? You can take part in the #upcycling movement and make use of an old coat that you’re no longer wearing. Helloooo, Earth Day!
We’ve been seeing succulents and terrariums ALL OVER THE INTERNET, so we’ve decided to try our hand in making our own using these instructions. The verdict? It’s surprisingly quick and easy! Start with a creative glass container – an old coffee pot will work, but if you’re feeling adventurous you can use this as an excuse to hit up the local thrift store (with $20 in your pocket). Next, stop by the pet store for colored aquarium gravel and/or the craft store for some sand. All you’ve got to do now, is layer your ‘ingredients’ and top everything with a succulent or two from the local Trader Joe’s (or literally any store these days). Worried about your not-so-green thumb? All terrariums need is some occasional sunlight and a spritz of water!
These DIYs are a creative way to keep yourself busy during dreary rainy days. Once summer rolls around, you’ll have some awesome terrariums to show off and plenty of Insta-worthy pics of your pup rocking a raincoat. If all else fails, you can always just play a round of pool in our clubroom! 😉
