Stay cool this summer with a do-it-yourself misting tent

Posted: Updated:

July means hot weather. The Home Depot's Scott Krueger and Joe Autry have a sure thing for your Fourth of July entertaining. They have the easy steps to making your own misting tent. You'll often find misting tents at sporting events, charity walks and fun runs. You can easily make your own misting tent with some readily available materials and simple tools.

Things You'll Need

10-foot by 10-foot pop-up canopy tent

Two 12" x 1' PVC pipes

Zip ties


Set up the pop-up canopy tent near an outdoor water faucet. Pick a spot that drains well or is on a hard surface so the ground doesn't get muddy.

Place the two PVC pipes inside the canopy of the tent. The ends should rest on the support struts of the tent top, spaced three feet apart. Secure the pipes onto the struts with zip ties.

Place your misting hose on top of the PVC pipes with the holes of the hose facing up. Secure the hose to the pipes with zip ties every 12 inches. Run the hose so it is a U-shape down one PVC pipe and up the other. Then run the hose down one of the tent's vertical legs, securing it with zip ties.

Attach the end of the hose to the faucet and turn on the water. Adjust the pressure of water to get the degree of misting you want.
