If we can spare some time and don’t mind getting our hands dirty, we can make our own outdoor decoration and built an outdoor junk garden. Apart from reducing waste and saving the earth, outdoor junk decoration will also save our money, as they are zero cost and readily available. This time, we have a few ideas for this junk garden project. Check them out.
Planter from a Drawer
Unused old drawers can make beautiful outdoor junk garden decorations. We can use them as a planter, try to arrange them in a stack with a wooden easel like a staircase or hang them on the porch if the drawer is not too large. We can also put the drawer on the ground and fill it with colourful flowers to make a flowerbed.
Dining Ware Wind Chime
Do you have unused metal dining ware lying around? Try this simple yet clever outdoor junk garden decoration. We can use colander, plate, or similar ware to use as the base of our wind chime. Next, drill holes around the edges of the base and also on the base of the material.
Once the holes drilled, flip the colander or plate and attach a crafting string, twine, or wire on the base, so it’s hanging upside down. Attach other dining ware such as spoon, fork or knife to the rest of the holes with strings, and hang the wind chime on a place where it can catch a lot of wind.
Cabinet Door Wall Art
Unused cabinet door can also be used as outdoor junk garden decorations. One of them is as wall art or signage. The cabinet door can be painted with patterns or lettering. Hang it on the wall near our front door or place it as a sign in our front yard.
Those are a few ideas of outdoor junk garden decorations you can try. So, don’t throw away the junk yet, experiment with them and have fun creating junk garden decorations.
