Quick and Easy Upcycled Garden Décor Ideas

Spring is in full swing here in NC. My Knock Out Roses are starting to bloom and they are knock out gorgeous! I have been trying to get some yard projects completed before the sweltering heat of summer arrives. Today I thought it would be fun to share a few quick and easy upcycled garden decor ideas that may get you outside to dress up your own garden.

I would love to have a beautiful cottage style garden, the kind that are featured in magazines or commercials for Miracle Grow but I just don’t have that kind of time and my thumb isn’t exactly Kelly green. I have killed many poor plants in my day but I do my best. For what I lack in gardening skills I try to make up with in cute decorative garden accents. For those of us who love to decorate the inside of our homes there is no reason why we can’t continue decorating outside as well.

Leftover rain boots from those April showers? Maybe you have a pair your child has outgrown? You can upcycle old rain boots and use them in your garden or porch by placing a glass jar filled with water inside a rain boot. Place a bouquet of fresh flowers in the jar and you have a nice centerpiece for a picnic table or an outdoor sitting area.

You can easily create unique bird bath by upcycling and old enamel bowl, a salvaged spindle and a thrift store plate. I built this “shabby” birdbath a few years ago by gluing each piece to the next with Amazing Goop Household Adhesive. I LOVE this glue. This bird bath held up through winter storms, rain, heat, cold, even a hurricane or two. I finally retired it last summer because the bowl rusted through.

Hand paint an old chair and display it in your garden. Place a potted plant on the seat and you have instant garden decor with character. Sealing it with a few coats of polyurethane will help protect it from the elements.

This last project is one of my favorites. I bought this vintage bike at a thrift shop a few years back. I gave it a few coats of paint and placed it in my front garden. I have gotten quite a few lovely comments about it over the years. When painting your own vintage bike for your garden I highly recommend using a rust proof paint.
