20 DIY Outdoor Summer Projects You Need to Try

Summer is here, and I couldn’t be any more excited! I love it in all its glory; hot weather, sunshine, cool relaxing evenings, swimming, gardening, and so much more. You name it, I love it (and, I love it even more since we just got an a/c unit! YAY!)! I also love working outside and making fun things, just as any DIYer does. I’ve been eyeing all sorts of awesome DIY outdoor projects around blogland lately, and I thought it was time I put them all into one place for you (and me!).

PicMonkey CollageFrom repurposed beverage carts to fairy gardens to DIY water walls, there are projects below for any skill level. While we currently have a tiny little yard, I still want to try every single one of these at some point because they are all so cool. I guess we just need to find a bigger house! Poor David. 😉

Enjoy these 20 DIY outdoor summer projects!
