4. Strawberry Stickers
You might grow up, but that doesn't mean you have to grow out of loving stickers. They're such a simple, low-cost way to add a little color and whimsy to your life (by way of your laptop, water bottle, bedroom door... the list continues!). There are plenty of summer fruit-themed stickers out there, but we're berry fond of these punny and cute strawberry stickers from TurtlesSoup.

7. Strawberry Stained Glass
Make strawberries a permanent part of your dining room or kitchen decor with this strawberry stained glass piece from Etsy artisan ArmorStudioArt. It's designed to be hung in the corner of a window, so you'll be mesmerized as the sun streams through and light refracts across the room in intricate patterns.
8. DIY Needle Felt Strawberries
Ready to learn a new craft? Give needle felting consideration—and if you want to try it out, practice by creating adorable, fuzzy strawberries. This TikTok from @nvlamnhahihi demonstrates the basic process, which is worth checking out for the ASMR value alone. (Turns out needle felting is kinda noisy!)
9. Strawberry Throw Pillow Covers
Switching up throw pillows is one of the easiest ways to refresh your living room or bedroom decor. It's even easier when you're simply swapping out covers instead of buying entirely new pillows. Naturally, strawberry prints are the perfect choice for summer home decor (or any time of year, if you ask us!). Check out the strawberry patterns on these printed pillow covers from Etsy seller CentralHomeStore.
10. DIY Strawberry Centerpieces
If you're hosting casual gatherings or family dinners this summer, homemade strawberry centerpieces (demonstrated beautifully by TikToker @danysdecorations) are a win-win. The craft itself is simple enough that you might already have materials on hand, making it easy to save money on party decorations and use up that inexplicable stash of empty Mason jars. And, despite being easy to make, the finished centerpieces are so cute that you're guaranteed to get compliments.
11. Crocheted Strawberries
After a long day, wouldn't it be nice to climb into your car and be greeted by a friendly crocheted strawberry plant hanging from the rearview mirror? If you can't crochet your own miniature strawberry patch, leave it to Etsy creators like LaughingShops, who makes these charming crocheted pieces. Delightful!
12. Strawberry Earrings
Last but certainly not least, wear your love for strawberries on your ears with a pair of real pressed strawberry earrings. Yes, you read that correctly: These wearable wonders from Etsy artisan MooncfCraft are made using actual dried, pressed strawberry slices and resin. These would add a gleeful pop of color to any outfit.
Fresh strawberries might last a week in your fridge, but strawberry home decor and other themed pieces are truly timeless. Which of these sweet and delicious finds are you shopping or making first? Whatever you choose, we're wishing you a berry fun experience.
