28 Fun Movie Night DIY Ideas
Want to make your movie night at home more special? Here are some tips:
- For a fun movie night experience, start by making your own popcorn. You can even get creative and add your own toppings.
- Make the couch cozy! Add some extra cozy blankets and pillows for everyone to snuggle up in.
- If you’re looking for something a little more special, and you have the yard space, try an outdoor movie night. Set up a projector and screen in your backyard (you can find some affordable projector bundles on Amazon). Consider spraying down your yard with a DIY all-natural pesticide spray before the big night starts, to keep everyone comfortable. Bringing the movie outside is always a hit!
