You might be stuck working inside this summer but you can still relive one of your favorite camp pastimes: the crafts! We're feeling pretty nostalgic about these tutorials that have us revisiting some of our favorite camp crafts. Stock up on Kool-aid and graham crackers and get ready to DIY your heart out.

Make a few for your friends or yourself! These classic chevron woven bracelets were good enough for you at age 12 and they're still stylish today. Get the DIY instructions at HonestlyWTF.

Perler beads

Remember the poppy, plastic beads that get fused together with an iron? I'm not sure I ever knew that they're called perler beads, but I sure knew I loved to melt my patterns. This Brit+Co tutorial gives you some great ideas for cute coasters but we bet you can think of lots of creative bead projects.

Tie dye is back in a big way (did it really ever go away?) and we're completely on board. Check out our own Apartment Therapy tutorial that uses markers instead of messy dye!

If you or someone you know (Grandma used to love these!) needs to stock up on potholders, weave them yourself like you used to. Here's a whole kit from Hearthsong that includes the loom and cotton loops.
