I feel like everyone I talk to is going on vacation in the next few weeks! And if they’re not going on vacation this summer, they have some amazing adventure planned in the near future.
I like it. We should all travel more!
While I’m not one to load up on souvenir tchotchkes, I do love to have something special from the trips I’ve been on; whether it’s a rock I found, a photo I took, or a postcard I picked up in a local store. There are so many creative things to do with items like that, and I feel like those types of souvenirs often outlast the cheap, junky ones you find in a souvenir store! Because of that (and because this is a DIY and crafts blog), here are twelve DIY vacation souvenir ideas to help you keep those vacation memories alive long after your trip ends!
