Flamingos and summer go hand-in-hand like cookies and milk. Don't you agree? I adore the flamingo for a good summertime decoration. Why, my mother still has flamingo garden stakes that I can remember as long as I was a small child. They've faded so much, they're almost white now, but they are still around. I recently bought my daughter the cutest pair of flamingo shorts (which she wore this weekend, and what inspired me to write this post). A few weeks ago, I passed up some darling flamingo bed sheets (they were above my budget, but I SO wanted them). I haven't forgotten about them.

As you will witness below, flamingos have also become quite the thing to DIY. How about that flamingo ring toss game? Genius! Or, an entire decked-out flamingo party? Flamingos are bright, fun, and colourful, and definitely a summertime decoration, so enjoy these flamingo-inspired projects below.
