DIY Shade Canopy
A great way to create extra shade in your backyard is to create your own DIY shade canopy. While this project looks like a team of professionals set it up, it’s actually quite easy to do in your own yard, given that you have the correct materials. To create, simply cut a heavy piece of canvas (we used a waterproof canvas) and punch an eyelet into the corners of the fabric. Use rope to hang your creation from trees, off your porch, or in some other area of your backyard space. Learn more here. Remember that you can make this shade structure any size of your choosing, so don’t be afraid to really go big, if your yard needs something like that. This is one of the easiest DIY shade structures on the list!
