Landscaping isn’t always the easiest to deal with, sometimes we find gorgeous ideas that would be perfect for our garden, but then the budget doesn’t cooperate; and sometimes the budget is perfect, but you can’t really decide on a landscape design you enjoy looking at. Whatever the problem is, today we’ve brought you six beautiful and simple decorative garden accents on a budget!
They won’t really create a landscape by themselves, but they will add some unique garden accents that will beautify the whole picture of your home. Even more than that, they’re super simple landscaping ideas that you can DIY at home!
“Enjoyment of the landscape is a thrill.” - David Hockney
These markers are so simple and sometimes they can be underestimated because of that. But it’s guaranteed: they will add beauty to your garden! To make the whole Mason Jar + markers craft, you’ll need:
- Wood Spools
- Pint Mason Jars
- Wood Skewers or Dowels
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue
- Scrapbook Paper
If you want just the markers, then you can eliminate the use of the herbs, rocks, and Mason Jars.
Concrete spheres can make something special happen in your landscape! By themselves they don’t look like they can beautify a space, but they definitely do! That makes them one of the most unique garden accents around. You can use 10-, 12-, or 15-inch diameter molds to make them, or even alternate sizes, and them combine them with some colorful flowers!
Well, it’s not a surprise that bird feeders would appear on a list such as this one, right? They’re one of the most common landscaping ideas available. The only difference you’ll find is in their design, some will be made with plastic bottles, some with repurposed cups and plates, some even with pine cones covered with peanut butter and birdseed.
The one we brought here today is different:
It is made with repurposed maps! You can also add birdseed inside or by the sides and birds will love it even more! The best part about this is that it’s quite simple to make (even though it doesn’t look like it).
Concrete once again comes to steal the show! There’s no doubt it can make awesome landscaping designs, you just need to find the option that best suits your style. In this case, we have some planter ideas: the tall, long option or the short, open wide one. Combine with greenery and some colorful flowers - just as with the spheres - and you have made something incredible out of a simple idea.
Makeover Terra-Cotta Pots
There are many, many ways to makeover terra cotta pots, but one that will definitely catch the eye in your landscape design is this gold painted pot! Once you find the right spray paint color, it’s really easy to make as well: simply spray it all over the pot.
Tip: we recommend doing this project outdoors; it’s a beautiful color but you probably don’t want it all over your house floor, right?
Anyone who knows me the tiniest bit knows that I’m a plant maniac, each and every one I see I want to take home. If you’re anything like me on that matter, then this is the idea you need for your landscape: a hanging plant basket! If you place them on the porch, it’ll add curb appeal, if you place them in your backyard deck, it’ll add enough style and grace to make any gathering super special! Wherever you decide to place these hanging baskets, it’s guaranteed beauty!
