Creative DIY Outdoor Decor Ideas
Warmer temperatures and sunny days are undoubtedly luring you outside, which means it’s time to whip your yard into shape. This time of the year is perhaps the most popular for entertaining, especially if you have a beautifully landscaped backyard equipped with stylish patio furniture. If you haven’t stopped by your Dallas contemporary furniture store yet to pick up an outdoor patio set, there is no better time than this weekend! We offer a broad selection of patio furniture that come in a wide range of materials and styles, allowing you to choose the set that best fits your needs and space. Once you’ve got that part figured out, the fun can begin! If you are planning on spending any amount of time in your yard eating, entertaining, or simply lounging, you may want to rethink how the area looks and feels. Even if you are short on space and have a tight budget, there are options. From expansive yards to terraces, patios, and porches, we’ve got a few inspiring outdoor decor ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
- Glass bottle border.
Even if you don’t have a bunch of glass bottles lying around, this project is an affordable one that will bring your backyard space to life. No matter the size of your garden or yard, using colorful glass bottles as a planting bed border is a great way to add a little spunk to your space. Simply ‘plant’ the bottles in the ground upside down, and make sure to mix the colors of glass, varying between green, brown, and even blue
- Add a mirror or two.
Mirrors are a wonderful way to make any space look bigger, including your yard or patio. Simply place a mirror inside an old, large window frame and strategically place them on your patio or in your yard. If you have a fireplace, a great option would be to place mirrors on either side of this focal point to create the illusion of a larger space.
- Plant fragrant flowers.
Who doesn’t love the smell of spring and all the blooming flowers? You can enjoy these enchanting scents all spring and summer long by creating a fragrant oasis and bring in lavender, jasmine, hydrangeas, and even orange trees. Make the space even more inviting by adding twinkling lights in the trees. You’ll never want to leave!
- Painted pots.
Let’s face it, pots can be expensive. If you don’t have the budget for those awesome pots you keep drooling over at your local garden store, consider buying some cheap terra cotta pots, or even plastic ones, and painting them bright, vibrant colors. If you want to get really creative, you can also stencil them or add other fun designs.
- Stacked tire planters.
Repurposing old tires is another great way to add a little jazziness to your outdoor space without breaking the bank. Channel your inner artist and give the boring ol’ black tires a makeover with a bright coat of paint and some cool designs. Once you are done and they have dried, plant beautiful flowers or even a little herb garden!
There are many ways for you to transform your outdoor spaces into your very own oasis, without having to spend an arm and a leg. One of the keys to having a back or front yard that you actually want to spend time in is the furniture you choose. So before you get started on any of the above listed DIY projects, be sure to head down to Furniture Nation and select a patio set that you will use and love all season long!
