All right, it's time for you to take your lawn chair game to the next level by making a chair from your lawn. Yup. People are doing this, and it quite literally puts the lawn in lawn chair. All you need is dirt and grass to build what might be the easiest, smartest DIY of all time.
To make it, you shape a pile of dirt so it looks like a chair, lay sod or throw grass seeds all over it, then let nature take its course. That's it! You certainly don't need to be a furniture or garden expert, but you'll need to be patient as it grows. Here's how it works:

If grass stains don't bother you, what are you waiting for?!
