DIY Friday: Five Ideas to Celebrate Memorial Day

Ah, Memorial Day weekend – the unofficial start of summer, backyard barbecues, and wearing white. We’ve rounded up five projects to make your weekend a success.


If you’re heading toward a coast this weekend, try setting up this awesome beach party tent – most of what you need, you can find right on the beach! Plus, you can make this in your backyard for kids.

Maybe you’re staying home and hosting a barbecue. Take your grill-out to the next level by creating a backyard home theater and screening a movie if the evening is warm!

Another easy backyard idea is this bench swing – just saw the legs off of an IKEA bench, and you’ll be ready to swing and sip your party drink.

Finally, two adorable party dishes from Oh! Happy Day – diy food trays with mini hot dogs and these super-cool veggie boats!

Have a fun and safe weekend!
