Use Clear Umbrellas From The Dollar Store For A DIY Greenhouse Hack

I have to tell you a secret: I've always wanted to have a greenhouse on my property. Oh, I long for the days when I can do that.

But wait, as it turns out, there is an easier way to create a DIY greenhouse in your own backyard. And you don't need a large piece of land or expensive equipment either.

Wouldn't it be fun to have all the veggies and fruits you desire instead of shopping for them in the store?

Not only is it cheaper but also much healthier because you can use organic soil and compost to plant your seeds.

So it's no wonder that clever folks came up with a frugal idea to DIY a greenhouse.

Get this: you'll never believe what they're using to do so. Do you want to know what it is? I bet you're eager to find out, huh?

They are actually using clear umbrellas to create super-awesome, mini greenhouses.

OMG, wow! That's absolutely amazing. Isn't it? I have to be honest I would never have thought of that. Whoever came up with this idea is totally genius. Am I right?

So how are they doing it, you ask?

Well, it's really simple. All you need to do is get some clear umbrellas. I bet you can find them in a dollar store or similar store. It's definitely a great and cheap alternative.

Then, all you need to do is to remove the handles.

Insert these umbrellas over your plant tubs, bins, or large pots. That's all, folks. It can't get any easier than that. Do you see what I mean here? It looks so fabulous.

Some people have even done this while the weather was still cold.

It protected their plants from freezing over and dying. Oh, my goodness. Can you believe that? These folks are pretty brave. I would be a little wary of doing that.

It's pretty much like a little incubator for your plants.

They will be sung as a bug in there, ha, ha! Look at these pretty little guys. They look like they love their umbrella greenhouse here. Such lucky plants, huh?

Maybe this will be the next big trend in gardening.

I can see that happening. What do you think? I know I would be inclined to try something like this in my backyard, that's for sure. I need all the help I can get.

What do you think of this DIY umbrella greenhouse idea?

Would you try it yourself? I believe this is a great way to protect your plants from the elements, be it rain or even hail. It's definitely worth trying out.
