DIY screen for backyard drive in

Remember that one time I surprised Matthew for our three year anniversary and had a drive in at my house in my own backyard?
Well I am finally getting around to showing y'all how to make the screen!
It's really simple to make actually..
 
 
All you need is:
Hammer
Nails
Wood
King size sheet
Ladder
Tree or pole to hang it up on
Your daddy/boyfriend/husband/some type of male figure that is strong
 

We were hoping we wouldn't scare our neighbors with this thing hanging up, ha!
 
I had my dad help because obviously I couldn't ask Matthew since it was a surprise.
So I let him put his manly mind to work to figure out how to do this and of course I watched and took pictures helped him nail the sheet into the wood.
 
It actually wasn't too hard hammering those little nail things in y'all!


The hard part:
Hanging it up since we both can't go up the ladder it was a little difficult to hang up so I just let him handle that part... :)
We my dad hung this up on our telephone pole out in our yard and it worked perfect!



This really is very simple and cheap!
I spent $17 (for the king size sheet. my dad already had everything else) on this screen and that definitely beats buying a screen for $300!


Here are just a few pictures from that night, seriously I had a blast planning for this and setting everything up and he was so surprised!!






With fall coming up we'll be having those cool crisp nights that would be
P E R F E C T
for this so go have a drive in at your house in your own backyard!!
