Summer’s almost here, and we’re all out in the yard doing our favorite summer landscaping projects. In between cutting the grass, putting down mulch, planting a new flower bed, or trimming the hedges, you might have taken a look at your fence and wondered what you could do to decorate it. Fence decorations are a great way to add your own personal touch to your fence. Plus, because your fence is often the first thing people see from the street when they look at your home, adding decorations to the fence is a great way to increase your curb appeal and draw the eye to your home.
That’s why in this week’s blog, we’ll talk about a few ideas that are great for fence decoration. All of these projects are simple enough to do in an afternoon or weekend, and will certainly give your fence a beautiful new look! Keep on reading to learn more about our fun summer fence decoration ideas.
4 Fun Summer Fence Decoration Ideas
Hanging planters are a favorite fence decoration for many homeowners. They’re simple and easy to make, and add a nice splash of color to your fence. A great idea is to repurpose old tin cans such as a coffee can and paint them. You can either add a permanent hook to the fence, or add a hook to the can that will drape over the fence, allowing for easy removal. Fill them up with dirt and add a few of your favorite flowers, and you’re good to go!
Of course, tin cans are just one way to go about it. Try making your own planters out of wood, or find some planters that are ready to go at a local hardware store.
Bird houses are another fun fence decoration, and a great idea if you’re a birdwatcher. Just install a bird house on top of a fence post and watch a bird make its home there. If you have young children, they’re sure to be fascinated by this rare look into the natural world.
The great thing about fence art is that it can be pretty much whatever you want it to be. A great source of inspiration for fence art is repurposed items that might be floating around in your shed or garage. Old gutters can be arranged to create a natural waterfall on the fence. Old scraps of sheet metal or aluminum can be arranged into an artistic pattern. See what you can find and see how it inspires you!
Cut a Hole for Your Dog
Dogs love to see what’s going on outside the fence, but if you have a privacy fence it might be hard for him to do so. Cut a small hole in the fence to allow your dog to poke his head out and see what’s happening!
