We cannot deny that having a canopy in your garden or your backyard will be a fun way to spend your time there. You will start thinking to make your own by searching some diy outdoor canopy ideas on the internet or magazine. Well actually canopy is something that you do not have to take a lot of time or a lot of work to do since the basic things you have to consider are the stands, framework, and the top parts.
Material is the first option that you want to choose, whether for the stand, framework, top, or finishing. For the stand you have to choose whether you want to make it permanent or temporary, because if you want to make it permanent it is better for you plant it inside the ground and make the strong base for the canopy. But if you want to make it temporary or easy to move, you can choose easy-to-find material like flower pot, or old log to make the base of the canopy.
Next thing is the framework, for this part you may want to choose something that is strong enough to hold on the whole parts. Actually some materials like pvc and woods are also applicable, but like I said that you have to consider the strength of the frame. This thing is because you will build the canopy outside which a lot of things can happen, mainly the bad weather that will cause the canopy to be damaged.
For the top parts you can choose any kinds of materials such as fabrics, plywood, fiber, glass, or even plants, it is all based on your interest.
One thing that you need to consider is that you have to adjust everything that you choose for the materials and how you going to put them in one piece. Once you make mistake, you may have to make certain change that supposedly will end up you take another materials. Which will costs you more money and of course more time. Once everything set and ready, you just need to put it one by one, it will take like just a couple of days the most to finish it. Like I said the hardest part is to put every single material together before you decide to take it. Finishing is something that you can do step by step as the days go by once you finish it.
