You can them place your chairs throughout the yard or tuck them into flower beds. They will not only look fun be functional too.
2. Drag out the dishes!
Find an assortment of clear and colored glass plates and saucers. If you don’t have any, just scour your local thrift shop. Tuck the plates halfway down into the soil of your flower beds. They will create a colorful border as well as reflect the sun in a rainbow of hues.
3. Dig out the canisters.
Spice canisters, bread boxes, and other kitchen containers can be used as planters for all of your flowers and plants. Just drill a hole or add gravel to create a means of drainage in them. Once you plant your flowers in the canisters and containers, display them throughout the yard, tucked in flower beds, or display on chairs and plant stands.
4. Get shoe savvy.
If you have old shoes that no longer fit or are in rough shape, bring them outdoors! You can plant flowers in them, display colorful rocks in them, or even fill them with seed and turn them into birdfeeders! Talk about cute!
5. Birdcage anyone?
Old birdcages can be found at thrift stores and garage sales for a song. Grab one and display it in your yard, either hanging from a tree or displayed on a furniture piece. Put a potted plant inside and allow it to billow out of it.
6. Bring out the artistic touches.
