Aside from having some serious decor and accessories for summer (you’ll find all this stuff in-store), Ikea has also taken a liking to the DIY approach. (Maybe they heard how much we love Ikea hacks?) In its summer lookbook, the brand takes a hands-on approach to outdoor entertaining and party decor that has nothing to do with an allen wrench. Read on to see what we mean with these DIY tent and canopy hacks.

This DIY tent is simply fabric and sticks. Pillows and blankets optional, but strongly encouraged.

Not a bad way to do the whole “beach day” thing.

Picnic essentials are…you know, essential.

Front row seats for the sunset.

Just. Look. At. It.

Colorful streamers, tons of pillows, all you need to bring are friends.

All packed.

More colorful cuteness, in case you needed extra.

When stairs become seating…

Your dinner parties are this cute, right?

Is it summer yet??
