Bank holidays are for crafting and what better way to use utilise the extra time by sprucing up your outdoor space. We’ve collected nine DIY garden projects for you to make this weekend so you add the handmade touch to every corner of your home.
Check out more of our bank holiday crafty projects below:
1. Garden Wreath
2. Garden lanterns
Every funky garden needs lanterns and we adore Oh Joy’s DIY. Use whatever colours suit your garden décor and get the BBQ out.
3. Upcycled beanbag
4. Macramé swing
Savannah and Casey from Hey Wanderer have uploaded a macramé swing tutorial on their blog. This boho swing of dreams is a fab addition to your garden and they’ve even created a step by step video tutorial for you to follow.
5. Woven chair
Update an old garden chair or pick up one from the charity shop and upcycle using Alison Allen of Deuce Cities Henhouse video tutorial here. Make a set of multi-coloured chairs to lounge in this bank holiday.
6. Citronella Candle
Summer is all about spending time outdoors but sometimes the bugs can get a bit too much. Make Tiffany’s (from Don’t Waste The Crumbs blog) citronella candles to keep the bugs at bay.
7. Update your garden shed
This Bank Holiday update your garden shed with a lick of colourful ombre paint. Nikki McWilliams tutorial has made us fall in love with our sheds all over again.
8. Drink Cooler
Every summer garden (and party for that matter) needs a drink cooler. Dwelling in Happiness have a concrete cooler tutorial up on their blog and it’s super practical with its wheelie feet and tap to drain out the water.
9. Wooden pallet planter
If you’re after a bigger DIY garden project this weekend, why not try and recreate Cassie Fairy’s upcycled pallet planter? Pick up some spare pallets from your local tip or outdoor garden centre.
