One of my goals this Spring is to spruce up my small patio. Right now it looks more like a storage area than a nice outdoor space. I’ve been looking at planters but have been a bit bored by a lot of them. I want something that pops and creates visual interest! So, naturally, I’ve turned to DIY inspiration….

Cement blocks with painted neon accents.

I love that these cans aren’t perfectly shaped!

Try using bags instead.

Chalkboard paint!


Add a coat of paint and let it drip dry

Dinosaur planters!

Add a heart or another shape with paint


Also, I don’t have a fence but if I did I would definitely make these!
