A big bucket of popcorn, a cozy blanket and your favorite family movie. There’s only one thing that tops that list: being outside in your own backyard. With this Springfree Trampoline DIY Outdoor Movie Theater, you can do both at the same time!

This blog will help you host the perfect movie night this summer—guaranteed to wow your family and neighbors! Springfree Trampolines has got tons of ideas on how to throw a perfect movie night celebration. Learn how to decorate, feed and host the perfect event.

The first step is making sure you have something to show the movie on! Here is an easy DIY tutorial on how to convert your Springfree Trampoline into an outdoor movie screen. With just a few simple materials and some ingenuity, you can build your very own screen.

For your Springfree Trampoline Movie Screen, you will need:

  • 1 Springfree Trampoline
  • 1 King Size Bed Sheet
  • Zip Ties
  • Rope
  • Scissors
  • Ladder
  • Optional:
    • Grommets
    • Clamps

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Begin by taking out the two middle net rods in order to create a flat surface which will act as the backdrop for the screen. Lay out your king sized bed sheet and make six small holes. Place one in each of the four corners and one on each side, half way down the sheet.
  2. Attach the top 2 corners of the sheet to the top of the trampoline. You can secure it to the top of the first available net rod (see picture) using zip ties. Make sure it’s attached securely. Do this on both sides.
  3. Use a piece of string to secure the middle of the sheet to the net rod. Do this on both sides.
  4. Use a piece of string to secure the bottom of the sheet to the frame. Do this on both sides.
  5. If the sheet isn’t tight to the trampoline, you can use clamps to secure the sheet to the frame.
  6. Make sure that your projector is far enough away from the trampoline to properly display the movie across the sheet.

*NOTE: Only remove the net rods once you’re ready to stop all jumping. Removing the net rods decreases the effectiveness of the safety enclosure.
