How to Build a Temporary Pergola
This tutorial to build a temporary pergola is perfect for a wedding, photo shoot, for some shade, or for your garden if you are okay with it not lasting forever.
My sister and I constructed it for our Thompson’s WaterSeal Bali Dream Deck to provide some romance and shade from the hot Bali sun.
- 2 Trellises (with double vertical construction)
- 1 Trellis
- 4 – 2 1/2″ wood screws
- Drill bit
Dry fit your trellis pieces together to create the pergola shape. Make note of where the top trellis intersects with the two side pieces.
Pre-drill holes through the top trellis piece at the four intersecting points.
Pre-drill holes into the top outer pieces of the vertical side trellises (where they meet the top trellis.)
Clamp or have a friend hold the trellis together and drive the wood screws through the top trellis and into the side pieces.
Stand back and admire your quick and easy temporary pergola!
Accessorize your pergola with hanging lanterns and curtains. We shopped World Market for our accessories.
The garden stool was from Lowe’s (we spray painted it aqua.)
I had to share this gem with you. My sister took this picture and we both could not stop laughing at my facial expression.
I think it would be hysterical to hear your funny captions for this photo. Go ahead and leave a comment below with your funny caption and I’ll pick my favorite to win a $25 Lowe’s Gift Card in a few days.
Pin for later!

What a great project! I love the accessories you chose, especially the lanterns. They really add to the ambiance going on. This is gorgeous, but I’ve also been looking into have a more permanent pergola installed. I think that it could really contribute to my outside–thoughts?
