Flamingos were popping up everywhere this summer, from clothing to art prints to crafts. It’s no surprise–they’re vibrant, unique, and somehow seem like they’re always having a good time! I’ve already been enjoying this trend (remember my adorable seedpod flamingo?), but here a few ways I’d love to hop on this pink bird bandwagon even more.
While you could go all out and wear something like this dress, I’m one who likes to keep it simple and subtle. Metal flamingo-shaped jewelry and a summery pale pink romper seem just the ticket.
Decorate With It
Perhaps the easiest way to try out a new trend is to add a couple of pieces to your home. I like the idea of a simple art print (seems like an easy DIY, actually) or a fun throw pillow. If I were in a committal mood, I’d even consider flamingo wallpaper in the bathroom!
Have some time for a flamingo-inspired craft? Try one of these below, all from blogs I’ve been loving! The Tomkat Studio gives a DIY for creating flamingo puppets that (you’ll love this!) accompany a beautiful children’s book. Talk about a fantastic gift for a little one! Oh Happy Day details how to create a darling favor bag, perhaps matching a theme for your next party! Creature Comforts–a longtime favorite of mine–has the easiest one of all: lovely cards that only require you to press print.
Note: If you love these DIYs and ideas, please pin from the original source!
Finally, since Halloween costumes are already making it into stores and Pinterest boards, I’ll leave you with this gorgeous flamingo mask from Shades of Every Color, an Etsy shop with the most creative items. I’m thinking some pink tights, a fluffy skirt, and feather headband would complete the look. (Bonus: The download is unlimited for personal use, so if you throw that flamingo-themed party, your guests can each don this beauty!)
