Thanks for posting this, Anne. What a lot of great fence ideas! I have boring block walls but I bet some of these things would work well anyway. I love the simple idea of the marbles set into the wood fence! I also love the boxes of succulents. I did try that once, but they took too much attention to keep them looking perfect.

Karen, I have wondered about the boxes of succulents like that and wondered just how that could work. Confused

Maybe there are slow growing succulents? The ones I've had required cutting them back almost daily! They got way too leggy and ugly if I left them. I think all the gorgeous boxes we see for sale were just planted. Rolling my eyes.

Anne, there are some cool ideas here.

I loved the marbles and bird houses best.

I'm definitely going to do the Tin Can one since I just happen to have a 30 gallon trash bag of the large V8 cans! Know I know why I was keeping them. LOL

That's great, Anne!

I have a bunch of old rubber and plastic fishing floats I collected from the beaches in the Marshall Islands. They
-ve been in big trash bags since 2003! I could use some good ideas for them. Everything I think of feels too junky to me.

Oh my, how great are these?!?!? @Bubbles has the marbles on her fence!. It looks really cool!
I love the birdhouses too. How neat would it be to have different birds in everyone! Smiling
The shutters would be cool as a lil privacy area. I love them all!

Thank You! Good idea, Anne. I might give that a try. Maybe they would scare deer away! The float colors are all very faded yellows and oranges, so they aren't especially good looking anymore.

This fence decoration idea is terrific! I have bookmarked this page so I can go back to it. I love how creative people can be; God didn't give me that particular talent but He did give me others that I feel really count. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!

I agree, @wheetie67. There are some really great ideas there.

I'm really not very creative at all. I'm much better getting ideas from someone else and then doing my own thing. I can't copy anything decently! I've tried to copy mosaics when the artist has given me permission. It never works.
