“My extravagance is my garden – it’s the first thing I look at every morning when I wake up. It gives me so much pleasure.”Ina Garten
Adding a fire pit, wind chimes, string lights, and a water fountain are popular choice garden features. The best thing about designing the look of your garden is that you can use vintage garden decorations, DIY projects, and new garden ornaments to display your creativity.
You decorate your home, so why not add whimsical accents to your outdoor space to make your garden pop?
Even if you have a small garden, you can find excellent garden decor ideas. I went on several garden tours, and the yard art below is the highlights.

Here are the 17 Fun Ideas for Garden Decor to Inspire You:
1. Rustic Garden Signs
There’s something about homemade rustic garden signs that makes me happy. I went to a garage sale that had the most adorable cottage garden with various garden signs.
Signs are a great way to add personality to your garden. This tomato sign is adorable. I love the way the tomatoes are the “o’s” in the sign.
2. Rustic Garden Art – Love at Home
I was driving by a house, and they had this beautiful simple heart lying in front of a large rock. This garden decoration was an easy way to show the importance of love at home.
3. Garden Focal Point – A Cozy Bench
Look how breathtaking this bench looks sitting center-stage in front of a bed of colorful flowers. Benches are a great idea to create a focal point and comfortable seating in your garden without spending a lot of money.
4. Creative containers – vintage wash tub
Creative containers are one of my favorite garden decoration ideas. This vintage washing tub does perfect double duty as a unique planter.
You can find unusual containers at flea markets, thrift stores, or garage sales. Vintage tins and an old galvanized bucket are excellent ways to display your plants on your front porch.
5. Giving direction with Weathervanes
Who doesn’t need a fun weathervane in their garden? This one steals the show. They make a significant impact outdoor decoration.
6. Artistic Flare – Hand Blown Glass Flowers in the Garden
Since we’re looking at hand-blown garden art, how about these glass flowers in bright colors? Hand-blown glass is one of the best ideas for garden decor to give your space easy elegance.
7. Garden Art – Mosaic Statue
This handcrafted mosaic garden statue is simply stunning. She would bring a unique decorative element and peace to any corner of your garden.
8. Hand Painted Chicken Coop Window Frame
Garden spaces that have chicken coops are a great way to show off your creative side. The hand-painted window frame around the chicken coop window gives any garden an attractive rustic look.
Painting designs in your garden is one of the most inexpensive ideas for garden decor that takes a little artistic ability. If you’re not a good painter, perhaps you can enlist a friend to help you?
9. Small statement
A bowl with pink baubles makes a beautiful focal point wherever it’s placed. You can add water to the saucer for a simple water feature.
10. Chicken Coop Egg Wreath
How cute is this? Adding an egg wreath to a rustic chicken coop is the perfect whimsical touch and a great addition to welcome everyone to your coop.
11. Nautical Garden Art with Wooden Sail Boats
With a nod to the sea, this adorable garden accent will have you dreaming of future adventures.
12. Rustic Garden Metal Flower
Look how nicely this rustic handmade flower shows off the natural elements of the building. This flower went viral on social media as one of the favorite fun ideas for garden decor.
Don’t overlook the sides of your garage or sheds for outdoor decorating.
13. Create Your Own Magical Forest
I found this guy tucked away in the corner of a garden that created a fun surprise in an outdoor area. He looks pretty serious studying all visitors that enter the garden gate.
Whimsy is the perfect way to add fun ideas for garden decor, even if you have a small space.
14. Little Birdie Garden Gate
The most minor touch in the garden can have a significant impact. What a good idea this little bird is to welcome friends and family into the courtyard.
15. Add a touch of whimsy to your garden decor
This little sign had everyone chuckling on the garden tour. If your true love is wine, proclaim it for all the world to see!
You can make your own DIY garden decor tree sign and let everyone know what you love the most.
16. Potted Garden Chair
Simply removing the seat from old chairs and turning them into planters, you can have a unique garden art display that will wow visitors.
This display removed the seat from a vintage chair and anchored a large terra cotta pot in the center. By adding smaller pots to the center, they could create a fun design complete with one of the cutest garden stakes – a handmade garden fairy.
17. Nautical Garden Gate
I love about this idea because you can transform any wooden garden gate into a work-of-art with the theme of your choice. This photo has become one of the favorite DIY projects with my readers.
If your garden is a vegetable garden, cutting out your favorite vegetables would look cute as well. This would work with any themed garden and add a memorable focal point.
