What to Make This Weekend: Slinky Jewelry, a Watermelon Vase + More

It’s official, folks: Back-to-school season is upon us. Before you have to get back to the old grind, spend one last weekend enjoying the heat and hanging out. Once you’ve caught up on the new season of True Detective and had some time to chill by the pool, get off the couch and get making! Whether you’re in need of a super cute new hamper or a cheap phone case, here are 10 projects to tackle before Monday’s return.

1. Pineapple Laundry Basket: Maybe, just maybe, having a super cute laundry basket will keep you from throwing your clothes all over the floor. (via Brit + Co)
