Scrap Metal Art for the Yard
Recycled Metal Yard Art for the Garden
Turning old used metal recycled into art is a practical and beautiful way to recycle materials that would have ended up in the landfill into something to be appreciated. These whimsical decorations are fun and attractive. An example of a metal recycled piece is pictured at the right. This coffee drinking frog is a visual delight.
Recycled materials make one-of-a-kind art. Each piece is unique and unduplicated. Whether it's a metal folk art sculpture, or a wine bottle wind chime, they are sure to invite comments and compliments.
Decorating your yard and garden with these beautiful recycled pieces of art will be a pleasurable experience. It's interesting some of the things you can make from items such as old wine bottles.
What to Look For When Decorating Your Garden
Choosing the Right Décor for Your Yard or Patio
When you are looking for decorative accessories choose those that make you "feel good". Select garden ornaments that make you want to stop and relax. A garden is a place of enjoyment and beauty. Decorative accents should set the mood for your yard, garden or patio so it feels like a magical place that you will want to retreat to.
A lawn ornament has the potential to inspire your feelings of relaxation and peace. When it's an ornament with special meaning it can create belonging and joy. For instance if it's a funny, comical piece you may smile every time you walk by it. I just love the garden frog with the coffee cup pictured at the top of the page, and every time I see it I have a nice feeling inside.
Where to Put Your Scrap Metal Art
If the metal has been painted it is protected from the elements and can be placed anywhere outside in the yard. Pieces can provoke conversation where they are in clear view of a sitting area so keep that in mind. Displaying a artwork in a garden offset by flowers can also bring a sense of peace and contentment.
