Decorating a yard can turn the area into an attractive and enjoyable space for the whole family. The actual process of decorating the yard can be just as fun as spending time outdoors. There are several fun yard decoration ideas that any homeowner should consider.
A fun decoration for a yard is a collection of different flower pinwheels. These decorations are pinwheels with colorful spinning blades that look like different flowers. The stem of the pinwheel is usually adorned with plastic or wooden leaves. Families can even turn regular pinwheels into garden decorations with kids. This just involves painting the pinwheel like a flower and attaching leaves or other decorations to the stem.
Garden flags are an easy and attractive decoration for any yard or lawn. The flags usually contain fun patterns, images or sayings. Spring flags often show new flowers, birds or welcoming messages. The flags move in the wind and can accent the colors of any landscape. Spring flags can even be replaced with other seasonal flags throughout the year. Adorning a yard with garden flags can make the property feel unique and special.
Most people are familiar with the pink plastic flamingos that show up in some yards and lawns. Personalizing these flamingos can be a fun activity for the entire family. Each family member gets a flamingo coated in white primer. Each person can then use acrylic or outdoor paint to make the flamingo look unique. The flamingos could be turned into bees or elephants with a little glue and a few extra wooden parts. A group of personalized flamingos can make any yard bright and fun.
Customized Stepping Stones
Stepping stones have become a popular decoration for the yard that is fun to make and that brightens up any space. It is possible to buy premade stones in nearly any shape and size. These can be painted or customized to fit the yard and home. Another option is to purchase a mold for the stones and make them out of concrete at home. This makes it possible to use dyes or to insert colorful stones and other decorations into the surface of the concrete. The stepping stones can be laid down throughout the yard to create paths that wind all through the property.
Birdhouses are colorful and fun for any yard. Birdhouses can be hung from trees or mounted on top of tall poles depending on the type of birds the family wants to attract. Purchasing kits will allow children to build and paint the birdhouses. An added benefit is that decorating a yard with birdhouses will attract many beneficial birds that eat harmful pests like mosquitoes and beetles.
