Ah Summer....relaxing around the pool or beach, popsicles, barbecues, games, vacay...it's a fun time of the year isn't it? These outdoor DIY projects will help you whip your yard into shape and add some fun color while you're at it!

I shared my DIY Flag Banner a few days ago, as part of the At Home DIY group that I belong to. We are a hard-working group of DIY bloggers who are partnering each month to share projects! This month's theme was 'Outdoor Projects' and I'm sharing some of my favorites from the round up with you today!

Here's a quick look at my project, an easy indoor/outdoor flag banner made using canvas drop cloth. You can also ready about our easy summer porch refresh and the shade loving plants that we added to our flower beds here.

Let's take a closer look at my 7 favorite projects from the round up.

No. 1: Two Feet First - Pineapple Door Mat

DIY Welcome Mat

Who doesn't love a cute doormat welcoming guests to the front door? Even better when it's an easy DIY project and has a fun pop of color like this pineapple! If you want to see how to make my DIY taco doormat, I shared the tutorial here.

No. 2: The DIY Dreamer - DIY Barn Quilt Door

DIY Barn Quilt Door

I'm no stranger to DIY barn quilts. I made a huge Ohio star barn quilt to hang on my in-law's garage. I also made a set of small barn quilts for a wall in my home. You can click on the links to see my tutorial, but I love this idea of adding barn quilts to an old chippy door!

No 3: The Handyman,s Daughter - DIY Vertical Wall Planter
