These DIY privacy screens are a great way to get the privacy you want inside and out, whether it be for your deck, porch, area of your yard, or even your windows.

Some of these privacy screens can also be used to hide anything unsightly in your yard such as trash cans, recycling bins, an air conditioner, or even areas of your yard that you just don't love. They can even be used for backyard shade.

All of these DIY privacy screen projects are beginner-level and low-budget. You'll learn a lot without spending a lot, and have a great build that you'll be eager to share.
