As spring arrives it is time to begin prepping the garden areas ready for guests. One way to spruce up your garden is with various DIY outdoor decorating ideas. Decorating a small garden nicely makes it more visually appealing and feel more welcoming. The following DIY decorations can help spruce up the small garden with items that can be both appealing and useful with little added cost, and a much larger sense of self-accomplishment.
Give flowerpots a mosaic look
Make use of broken porcelain or pottery by creating a one-of-a-kind small garden DIY decoration. If there are no broken or cracked ceramics at home, seek them out at a local market. Chipped and cracked pieces can be bought for next to nothing and they are ideal for the purpose of making a mosaic on flowerpots. For the best results the colour scheme should be kept simple; the common blue and white patterns can be most effective and attractive. For those with a more creative sense, a unique colour scheme can be created that really catches the eye.
Make DIY small garden edging with terra-cotta tiles
The borders of any small garden can be dressed up by using these handmade edging tiles. This DIY edging serves multiple purposes including preventing grass from encroaching on shrub borders or flowerbeds. Edging and trimming chores can also be cut to a minimum by using wide, flat borders that create a mowing strip. However, the decorative border as described below adds an element of artistic flair to the flowerbed the entire year.
Create awning striped painted flower pots
This is a simple paint motif of broad stripes and bright contrast that is reminiscent of awnings and garden parties and is great way to add a cheerful look to plain terra-cotta flowerpots.
