A Lovely Ladder Garden Decor
Ladders aren’t just for functionality these days. Whether placed inside or outside, these wooden, triangular steps create the perfect trendy shelves to place adorable home decor or garden decor. Stack up colorful garden containers to maximize the space in your garden. Ideal for herb gardens!
Whimsical Garden Walls
Most people think of gardens as flat spaces, but why do they have to be? Create your own vertical garden decor by using the walls or fencing around your garden/outdoor patio space. Not only do you save tons of ground space for lawn chairs, tables, and other decor, but you also freshen up a bland wall by adding colorful spray-painted cans.
Upcycling Old Tools
Add to your garden decor by reusing old garden tools! This is a great way to keep your theme in the garden category, while creating a cute, eco-friendly atmosphere. Use an old wooden-toothed rake as a wall hanger, so you can hang your water hose, summer hat, keys, or anything that looks nice! Give the old rake a fresh coat of paint to brighten up a dull surface or keep it looking natural.
Cozy Fire Pit
Gardens range from tiny green spaces to gigantic outdoor lawn space complete with patios. Whatever you have, adding a cozy fire pit will surely spice up your garden decor! You can create one in under 30 minutes by using curvy paving stones and arranging them in a circle.
Did you say more flowers? No problem! Grab a shallow, colorful dish. Add some water (not too much), some lighted tea candles, and the prettiest flower buds to float on top.
It’s perhaps one of the simplest and cutest ways to add some light, fresh touches to your garden decor.
Stenciled Stepping Stones
Stenciled stepping stones are one of the most popular ways to add a burst of decor to your garden. It is simple to do and doesn’t take any time at all. Plus, making these patterns is most fun with kids! Not to mention the stones will save your garden from heavy foot traffic!
Flowering Colander Hanging Baskets
Did you have any idea that your old kitchen appliances could be repurposed as garden decor? Yes! Give your worn-out colanders a fresh spray of paint, some hanging cords using natural sisal or twine around the handles and plant your favorite flowers. All that’s left to do is hang them up and give them their first drink of water!
