Nice ideas! If I had a pool, I'd definitely be making that floating tray!

I want to make the DIY wood stove first. It is hard to choose what to do next. There are so many great ideas!

I think the tutorial I am most likely to try would be the How to Paint an Outdoor Rug tutorial. However, I also would like to attempt making the Wine Bottle Citronella Candles. I like the decorative, yet practical crafts!
