These wreaths are really pretty, I especially like the second one:)
I think these bird cages look really lovely and it's probably not very difficult to make something like this:

Wow I love the look of those birdcages, they are gorgeous! They do look a bit fiddly to make though...

I love ivy, it always looks very romantic:)
This is a very simple decoration but I think it looks adorable:



And this decoration feels like spring:

I love the tin punch butterflies on the second one. How about this, Maddie?



It doesn't look too difficult or like it would take up much space on your balcony.

These are both cute and practical!



This is a way to add cute crafty touches that don't take up a lot of space.



You could do something like this with a word that has meaning for you:

ChanellG, these are really nice ideas!
I find these flowerpots quite pretty, they're decorated with little stones:



And here are flowerpots that can make every child happy:D :

@ Channel, Thanks, those pots look colorful indeed.. and so do these above.. I may settle for something like this.. :D
@ Claudine, I do love those pot faces with grass hair.. they are adorable :D I am gonna make my pots look like those.. only they will have plants growing out not grass..
My son and I painted some lady bugs and froggies on stones yesterday.. I thought we could add some more colors and shapes to our garden.. :D

How do you like this pine cone turkeys?

Maddie, the pine cone turkeys make me think of Thanksgiving. They don't look like they would hold up long outdoors in the weather. Maybe you could use a different material for the beak and feathers. I've seen a lot of nifty ideas with painted stones.

Painting stones sounds like great fun, especially if you do this with children:D
I love these cone turkeys, it's a great idea and not complicated at all:)

You are right Chanell. It is pretty windy out here and will remain like this until March.. I might have to find something more suitable or these may fly away unlike the real turkeys.. but they are so easy to make or I am going to try one..when i find something to replace pine cones.
@ claudine , that is what we did.. my son and I :) Today we plan to paint some tortoises too:)
Did you find any other interesting garden craft / decoration ideas? Please share them here.. i really want to make my garden look a little more exciting!

Maddie I found two things today on Pinterest that I thought you might find interesting. I think the first would work great for people who don't have a lot of space and want to add art to the garden.



The second idea I think could be interesting under the right conditions. You would have to adapt this if you did it on your balcony, but it could be pretty with the light coming through the wood.

Claudine, those mushroom stools make me think of Alice in Wonderland! I can just see the Mad Hatter's tea party taking place with everyone sitting on these. The fence does sort of look like something you might see surrounding a fairy garden, doesn't it?

Channel thanks, I love the first one... I like those long containers those could add color and height to my plants.. I would like to try that out. I would think of using a waste piece of PVC pipe and decorate it with tiles or glass and put my regular container in.

I found something really lovely: lace decorated flower pots. I think I must look for some pretty lace and do something like this because it would look wonderful in my room. I love lace so much! I also love my roses - so it will be a perfect combination:D

Lace.. in the garden? Maybe on a window sill that isn't as crowded as mine.. All the watering will make it filthy in no time.. It is pretty though!
