Ahoy, sailor! And all aboard! We’re about to lift the anchor and set sail on a trendy exploration of the awesome anchor trend. With the summer upon us, it’s high time we hit the high seas and discover just how cute this trend can be. Ready? Great! Anchors away!
ANCHORS AWAY: HOME DECOR
You don’t have to live the life of beach-house luxury to enjoy the anchor element. Here are a few home decor ideas for even the most land-locked locales.
Anchor Wall Hooks by Riri Creations
Anchors as hooks? Perfection!
Anchor Nursery Art by Lovely Face Designs
Anchors in the nursery? I wouldn’t have thought of that before, but I love the idea when seeing it in this home decor ensemble. The pink and navy look lovely together, don’t ya think?
Anchor String Art by Marambra
I’m SO into string art at the moment, and an anchor design is simply divine. I’d love to create something like this in an ombre effect, using different shades of blue.
ANCHORS AWAY: FASHION
Anchors in fashion doesn’t necessarily mean a trip to Old Navy. Check out these wonderful ways to adorn in anchors.
Anchor Sweatshirt by Venus
Doesn’t this shirt look cozy? Perfect for an evening walk on the beach. Or, if you’re like me, a late night in the craft room.
Anchor Sandals by Wanelo
And what would a good anchor shirt be without some sassy shoes to pair it with? Sailor sandals to the rescue!
Anchor Bracelet by Infinity Wishes
Don’t worry, anchor bracelet won’t weigh you down. It will just give your arm an awesome summertime accessory.
ANCHORS AWAY: CRAFTING
All aboard! This crafting cruise is about to set sail!
Felicity by Glitz Design
Anchors are nothing new to our friends at Glitz. What can I say? Glitz has always had it’s eye on the next cool thing. But Felicity is new. Brand new. And I adore it! It’s adorned with a variety of coastal cuties, including the always-eye-catching anchor!
Ocean Melody by Webster’s Pages
Adrienne Looman has absolutely outdone herself with this one! It’s the perfect mix of whimsy and elegance. I can almost taste the salty sea air and hear the crashing waves as I breathe this one in. A bit over the top? Take a look and see for yourself. I think you’ll agree that this brand new line is stunning.
Anchor Paper Clips by Hobby Lobby
Don’t discount Hob Lob when it comes to embracing the anchor motif. These red and blue paperclips have nautical written all over them.
Sea to Shining Sea Simple Set by Simple Stories
You don’t have to wave Old Glory to appreciate the adorable anchor aspects found in this mini release from Simple Stories. It’s adorned with anchors and other motifs that would look great on any summer story you’re looking to tell.
Ahoy There Collection from Carta Bella
Another divine nautical assortment, Ahoy There from Carta Bella offers you anchor action in the form of stamps, paper and even dies!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to take a cruise after enjoying each of these delights. Great Salt Lake, here I come. ;) I hope you’re enjoying all the warmer weather has to offer. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite seaside ditties by the great Bobby Darin. Ciao!
