This summer it’s time to embrace your inner DIY guru. Remember, DIY projects are fun, and with proper instructions are fairly easy to complete. We’ve rounded up five of our favorite outdoor summer DIYs that will spruce up your yard in no time. Take the classroom outside with I Spy Diy’s flower Pot Chalkboard. Her adorable flower pot can be used indoors or out. Not sure what to do with all of those adorable plastic figurines? Why don’t you create a planter a la Ps I Made This. If you’re looking for something bigger to tackle this weekend, try creating a tire swing for the young ones. This childhood staple never gets old. Be sure to check out M&J for all of your DIY needs.
