A list of inexpensive and easy garden decorations.
Johnny Jump Ups planted in small galvanized buckets looks so charming!
Plant half whiskey barrels tightly with strawberry plants.
Scarecrows are not only useful, they're decorative.
Check your nearest dollar store for really cute and cheap garden
decorations! They also have seeds sometimes 10 packets for $1.00.
Make a rustic trellis by nailing or screwing branches together in
Tip a flowerpot (any size) over and have soil spill out of it. Plant
flowers in the soil for a charming spilled pot look.
Old bowling balls can either be spray painted desired color or left
and used as a "garden sphere" that is so popular in gardens If you
have a bowling ball, check the thrift stores or yard sales to get one
To spruce up a plain garage or house wall in the garden, nail strips of
wood onto the wall in a paned-window shape. Paint desired color, add

I love to recycle all sorts of objects in the garden anything from boots to old rusted combustion stoves -they make the best plant stands! I'm currently trying to repair a old wood stove thats been converted to a gas bbq!
I HANG UNIQUE ITEMS IN THE TREES OFF MY DECK; I PUT A HIBACHI GRILL GRATE HANGING IN THE TREE; IT SPINS; I PAINTED OLD CD DISKS AND DRILLED A HOLE AND HUNG THEM IN THE TREE; I LEFT THE SHINY SIDE UNPAINTED SO IT SHIMMERS IN THE SUNLIGHT.
WE ARE REDOING A FLOWER BED WITH CONTAINERS, I WILL USE AN OLD CONSTRUCTION WHEELBARROW AND FILL IT WITH FLOWERS; MY HUSBAND IS MAKING A LARGE TROUGH TO HOLD FLOWERS, I HAVE SOME OLD PIECES OF FARM EQUIPMENT WHICH WILL EMBELLISH THE TROUGH, I USE OLD CONTAINERS SUCH AS OLD TEAPOTS, BUCKETS AND I HAVE AN OLD ENAMELED STOCKPOT THAT I USE AS A PLANTER.
I ALSO USE BROKEN POTS THAT I SET ON THEIR SIDES AND ALSO SET POTS ON THEIR SIDE WITH SOIL AND FLOWERS FLOWING OUT OF THEM.
I JUST GO THROUGH MY KITCHEN AND OTHER AREAS OF THE HOUSE; USE WHATEVER I CAN TO MAKE A UNIQUE GARDEN ART PIECE.
