I remember absolutely dreading the hike at my 5th grade summer camp. I mean, who actually wants to be dragged up a mountain in a long, single-file line of stinky, sweaty kids? Not me. Thankfully I lived to craft another day, but now that I’m a grown up I’m designing a summer camp my way, and that means more scissors, paint, and glue and less sweaty, dirty hassle. After all, my favorite part of summer camps growing up was always craft time, so why not just dedicate a week to the best part of camp without the effort of hiking or dealing with bugs?
This week at The House that Lars Built we have been celebrating Summer Craft Camp, a Lars-approved week of crafting inspiration that doesn’t require any outdoorsy skills.
If you have an amazing, beautiful treehouse to craft in , great! If not, set up a tent (or just sit at your kitchen table) and get crafting!
During Little Lars Summer Camp we’ve made a DIY Charcuterie board, rounded up easy crafts for kids, and shown you our favorite templates and printables from the shop, and now we have limited edition summer craft kits for kids and adults alike!
You know the feeling of losing steam for a craft session because all the prep felt like chores? Ugh. We do, too. When you have a great project in mind, the last thing you want to have to do is run all over town looking for the right supplies! Enter our summer craft kits, which we will ship right to you so you can jump in to crafting.

Beaded Fruit Earring Craft Kit
At The House that Lars Built we’re firm believers that crafts aren’t only for kids, and this should come as no surprise to any of our readers. So, in true Lars fashion (and trust me, this is a fashion you won’t want to miss) we’re releasing a beaded fruit earring kit! We truly can’t get enough of this project, and we wanted to make it as accessible and easy as possible.
Choose between a pineapple, an apple, and an orange–you really can’t go wrong. Make just one for yourself or buy a 3-pack, then get your friends together for a crafting party and complete the set. If you do this with your friends it will be like a cute friendship charm in the form of a summer craft kit! A bonding activity and a memento? Yes, please!
The beaded fruit earring craft kit comes with:
- red, orange, or yellow seed beads
- green teardrop-shaped beads
- wooden beads as an armature for your wrapped, colorful beads
- metal headpins
- jewelry glue
- earring hooks
- written instructions and a video tutorial
You’ll need to provide needle-nose pliers and a tiny bit of hot glue, but all the crucial pieces of this beaded summer craft kit will show up on your doorstep, ready to go! You can buy this kit in our shop here.
I’m excited to see your creations! Show us with #CampLars and #LarsMakes. Happy crafting!
