Noemi loves playing guitar and has a keen interest in home decor and gardening.
As the warmer weather approaches - it's time to start thinking about decorating our outdoor space so we can have somewhere nice to sit and enjoy sunny days. Whether you have a small or a large outdoor space - you do not have to spend a fortune on sprucing it up. Make use of objects you may already have lying around such as bricks for example which can be used to make shelves to place pretty and colorful plants on. Pallets are another great find and have a multitude of possibilities for the garden from decking to planters.
For a tight space, this idea is great. You only need four bricks and two pieces of wood to recreate this and it really makes an impression. With the addition of brightly colored potted plants it will really brighten up a small space in an instant.
Transform pallets into decking to elevate your backyard decor. They are cheap and in many cases you can get them free. Sand them and treat them with outdoor paint or varnish to make sure they last. You could also install solar lights to really make them shine.
When it comes to decor - lighting is everything. It sets the tone and ambiance and done correctly can provide the right level of relaxation to your environment. These solar lights are bunched together and placed in a plant pot to almost resemble a lighted fire.
When it comes to outdoor furniture- you don't have to splurge. This outdoor bench is cleverly made with concrete blocks and wood which is slotted through them. You can make your own cushions to fit or purchase some outdoor cushions of your choice.
Dollar Store Finds
When it comes to a budget, your local dollar store holds a treasure of useful items for your decorating needs. These dollar store hurricane jars are placed into pots and pebbles with small flowers. It's so easy and looks really good.
Beautify your space with an Arty Display. You can use colorful plastic plates and bowls to make these pretty flowers for your wall or fence. An old hose is cut up to make the stems.
When it comes to outdoor decorating - we can't forget about tables which are needed for holding items like plants or an ice cold beverage on a hot day. This table is made using materials from the Dollar Tree.
- 2 Trash Barrels from Dollar Tree
- zip ties
- charger plates
Begin by zip-tying the 2 Trash Barrels together. You can then attach your rope around the center with glue. Add some decorations inside the top trash barrel such as a shell and glue your charger plate on top. You can then do the same with the bottom trash barrel.
If you want to attract little birds into your space - you can make this birdbath from dollar store supplies . Flowerpots bottom to bottom, charger plate, oil pan and adorn with accents!
A string of ten dollar store bug lights in a jar makes an interesting accent for outdoor entertaining.
Make these Tiki Wine Torches from leftover bottles. The rest of the supplies can be purchased at your local hardware store and as an added bonus they should help to keep the bugs away.
