How to Plan an Outdoor Movie Night

See the stars in your own backyard … on your DIY big screen, that is.

In the height of summer, your backyard or porch is headquarters for family time and date night alike. Combine both, and cue up a movie on your DIY movie screen for a staycation highlight.

A bedsheet or table cloth affixed to a fence or wall plays projection screen, and your at-home projector makes movie magic.

Setting up a snack station with seasoned popcorn and traditional concession stand candies will win over guests of all ages.

Creating a homemade touch is a nice way to personalize the experience. Gather a few common household materials — canvas dropcloth, painters’ tape, fabric-safe paint and a roller — and you can craft a custom blanket that feels expensive but only costs a few dollars. The stripes lend a nautical look that let this throw pull double duty as a beach blanket or picnic spread.

Whether you choose action, comedy or thriller, your backyard movie night is sure to be a hit.
