If you fancy taking on a home or garden projects, this list is going to be the ultimate inspiration for you! So put on your outdoor shoes, grab your tools – and let’s get to it!
Outdoor seating using wooden pallets
Wooden pallets are relatively easy to get your hands on and are the perfect staple for any low-key garden project. The great thing about them is the structure and stability is already there, so for most projects, you’ll just need to sand down, paint, varnish and attach any soft furnishings that take your fancy.
They make incredible outdoor dining areas and they make fantastic benches and outdoor sofas too. The more cushions you add the better! Don’t limit these ideas to outside too, if you’re reading this in the winter and fancy recreating something for indoors – you totally should!

Swinging porch bench
Now this one doesn’t necessarily need to live on your front porch (not everyone has one!) – but it’d look fab hanging from just about anywhere, whether that’s indoors or outdoors, on a porch or off a tree. We’ve seen loads of these in different colours and styles, but this particular design has to be our favourite. The traditional style mixed with modern colours is just perfection!

If you want to go one further than a swinging bench – why not make a swinging bed instead? Those warm summer nights will be even more perfect spent staring up at the stars.

No outdoor DIY list would be complete without a hammock! The ultimate in outdoor relaxation! Once you’re done making all these other projects, you might wish you’d started with the hammock, to give you somewhere to relax afterwards! These are relatively straightforward to make and look incredibly stylish and impressive once complete.

If you’re serious about your garden’s aesthetic, then a water fountain is the obvious choice. Fountains can take up as much space as you have free, but we’ve found a tutorial for a beautiful medium-sized one that would happily fit in most gardens. This lovely little fountain would be a relaxing addition to anyone’s home.

Something to do with the little ones! If you haven’t heard of fairy gardens before, it’s a new craze where you create a cute, fairy-friendly habitat for our little winged-friends to make their own. It’s a beautiful thing to do with children as it sets their imagination running wild and really builds excitement. Top tip – every now and again make little changes to the garden when the kids aren’t looking, so it looks like the fairies have really been moving things around.
