If you spend much time enjoying your backyard (no matter what the season), or if you're simply looking to increase the amount of flair in your front yard (there's nothing wrong with some extra tasteful curb appeal), there are a plethora of great wall decor ideas to spruce up your outdoor areas.

You can pick what space to decorate, from patios to fences, and even right on the side of your house.

Why Get Decorative Outside?

Unless you're a homebody that never ventures into your own yard, it can be nice to have a beautiful artistic view in your yard. Maybe you want people to notice your home when they drive by, or you're hoping to get walkers to stop and check out your wall decor gracing the front of your home.

It doesn't matter your reasoning, there are so many great ideas for outdoor wall decor, and you'll find that decorating the outdoors with more than just flowers, shrubs, and trees adds a little something extra, and even more personal, to the way your home looks from the outside.

What Makes Good Outdoor Wall Decor? 

When it comes to outdoor decoration, keep a few things in mind. First, you want to make sure it can withstand the elements. Even if an item is going to be on a covered porch, it's still going to get the effects of the elements – from sunshine draining its color to wind and rain pushing in on it.

That's why it's important to buy items made for outdoor display. You can also buy coatings for things made of wood and cement that will weatherproof them. Know what you're investing in so you're not disappointed when your “Welcome” sign fades and begins to fall apart from wood rot.

Do you Need A Theme?

It can help to come up with a theme for your yard and wall decor, but it's not a necessary element. If you have many yard decorations, you may want to make sure your porch or deck decor blends well. Themes can make it easier to make sure everything matches.

The most important factors are that you pick items that you enjoy looking at and that speak to you, and that you choose things that go well with your home. Try not to clash colors or get too dark with your decor when you have a light and sunny-looking home.

The Best Outdoor Wall Decor Ideas To Consider

Now that you have some sort of an idea of what to look for when it comes to outdoor decorations, here is a list of 20 great ideas to consider for wall decor for your home.

You could also use the sand theme to make a zen garden in your planter box (you'll want something light to cover the bottom, so you only need a thinner layer of sand on top, or it might become too heavy).
