DIY: Chandelier ~ 1 hula hoop (spray painted) + 2 strings of icicle lights and black electrical tape = magnificent chandelier... Awesome! great idea for an outdoor party!

Umbrella frame without the cloth, spray painted white, then draped with a long line of little white christmas lights, and hung out on the porch

Why didnt I think if that ? Tie squares of tulle fabric along a string of Christmas lights. This would be beautiful on a tree or mantle.

Easy DIY Project: Pallet Outdoor Bar

Easy DIY project : 2 pallets, 3 pavers ... such an easy thing to do! There are NO directions on the site, but I would assume that you secure the pallets together with nails ... the pavers (large squares) look like they are just resting on top but I'm sure you could use some kind of adhesive to have them become permanently attached. I'm thinking I'd use a few slabs of either discounted (broken, chipped) marble or slate! I'm going to try and convince Hubby to give this a try!

Take that mosquitos!- Mosquito trap - Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the straight part of the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there.

ok this is awesome, finally a table you don't have to pull your legs out over someone else....
