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 decorations 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 colorful 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.
