DIY Outdoor Decor Ideas


Outdoor decor is a great way to make your outdoor spaces more beautiful and functional. It can also be a fun DIY project for you and your family. I’ve put together some of my favorite outdoor decor ideas that are easy to install, inexpensive, and require little if any actual “DIY” skill.

Outdoor Rugs

Outdoor rugs are a great way to add color and style to your outdoor space. They can also help keep your floor clean, which is especially important when you have pets or small children around.

When choosing an outdoor rug, make sure that it is made out of something durable like stone or metal. This will help prevent damage from moisture in the ground and wear and tear caused by sun exposure.

Coffee Table

For an accessory that will be used every day, a coffee table is a must-have. It can be made out of scrap wood and painted or stained in a color to match your decor. The shape and size is up to you and it can be made with a glass top or wooden top.


A pergola is an excellent way to add privacy and shade to your outdoor space. It can be made of wood, metal or plastic and used as a place to hang plants.

A pergola can be freestanding or built onto an existing structure like a deck or porch. If you have an existing structure with posts, you can build the pergola onto these posts so that it’s totally integrated into the overall design of your outdoor space. This will give it even more function than if it were just freestanding by itself!

Privacy Screen

Privacy screen is a kind of DIY outdoor decor idea that can be made from scrap wood. It’s best to paint or stain the privacy screen for better aesthetic appearance. And you may hang it from a tree or wall as well!

You can paint the privacy screen to match with your home decor, which would make your outdoor space look even more beautiful and elegant.

Suspended Chairs

  • Use a hammock.
  • Use a hammock chair.
  • Use a swing.
  • Use a hammock bed, if you want to sleep out in the open air and your space is large enough for it (make sure it’s far from trees or anything else that could fall on you).
  • Use a hammock bench, which can be used as an extra place to sit while enjoying your outdoor decor creation! It can also be used as an entryway feature that welcomes guests into your home or garden when they enter through the gate or front door of their own home/garden.
  • Buy something like this table by [company name], available on Amazon for $**** dollars:****/dp/B00P8JLKZ6?ie=UTF8&th=1 It has adjustable legs so you can find just the right height for each person sitting there — great if some of them are taller than others!

Scrap wood is a versatile material for DIY outdoor decor.

Scrap wood is a versatile material for DIY outdoor decor. It’s easy to work with, and you can use it to create a variety of items such as furniture or plants. You can paint or stain scrap wood in different colors to suit your tastes, or leave it natural if you prefer the look of bare wood that has been sanded down so it’s smooth and shiny.

One thing I learned when making my own garden is that there are lots of options for what kind of scrap wood you can use for your projects:

  • 1x4s – These planks measure 3/4″ thick by 3-1/2″ wide by 8 feet long and come from spruce trees that have fallen over during storms (or were cut down intentionally). They’re usually available at local hardware stores for about $3 per piece depending on where you live. If the boards happen to be warped when they arrive at your home, simply run them through an old clothes dryer on high heat until they return back into their original shape!
  • 2x4s – These planks measure 1″ thick by 2-1/2″ wide by 8 feet long coming from redwood trees which grow primarily in California forests but also some other places around America such as Texas and Florida due largely thanks to replanting efforts made during World War II when lumber was scarce due demand caused by military needs overseas among other factors including resource constraints here at home driven largely due increased population growth rates during times such as now (2011) where many former farmlands turned into suburbs before eventually becoming urban areas full bore due loss of agricultural land space here in America since WWI ended over 100 years ago–you’ll find these types most often sold locally at hardware stores although sometimes online too (eBay).


We hope these ideas have inspired you to take on some DIY decor projects of your own! Outdoor spaces are an excellent canvas for creativity and personal expression, so if you’re looking for a new hobby or just want to try something fun and different, we encourage you to give it a shot. It can be tricky to plan out the logistics of these projects before starting them—but don’t let that scare you away from trying something new! You may find that once you get started, things flow much more smoothly than expected
