20 Affordable DIY Projects for Your Backyard

Rely on Pops of Color

It’s hard to contest with a striking contemporary barn as is, but a collage of colorful lanterns plastered across the neutral wood makes for the perfect celebratory statement.

Start with chicken wire to create the structure’s foundation, then affix your lanterns (starting with the largest first) around the perimeter using shipping tape.

Mixing and matching colors and sizes, fill in the gaps and connect the pieces with glue dots. Finally, (carefully!) hang with fishing wire and hooks or nails.
