Adding drapery to your outdoor surroundings is a great way to create a cozy feeling in an outdoor space. Our bargain-friendly tip to create the look is to use low cost fabric from any local fabric store, or, repurpose old sheets, tablecloths, or other unused fabrics to create a draped look.

2. Add Patterns & Color

Very often the exteriors of homes or apartments tend to be finished in neutral tones. Adding color and patterns wherever you can will liven up the area and create a fun, inviting space.

4. Add Pleasant Sounds

When you want to create a cozy space that’s truly all your own, no matter where your surroundings happen to be, sound is a simple way to do it. Classic items like wind-chimes and water fountains easily add calming, beautiful sounds that can be the key to tuning out the outside world.

Creating your own cozy oasis is what it’s all about.

DIY water fountains are always in style, and can be made in an afternoon, even on the smallest budget. It doesn’t matter how much space you have either — these fountains can be easily made in a variety of sizes.

5. Maximize Walls

Using the elements of your home’s outdoor structure, fences or walls is an easy and bargain-friendly way to create a personal, comfy and artistic space.

Decorating the walls and borders of your space can be done simply and quickly. Plus, the possibilities are endless! Create a succulent wall or even your own herb garden. For low walls, try hanging one row. If your outdoor areas are taller and narrow, hang a row of pots vertically to create the same effect.

Another low-cost item is “no-tech” wall sconces, which add your own stylish touch. There are many inexpensive options for wall sconces to use with large, low cost candles, which can be found at dollar stores nearly everywhere. All you need are some mason jars, twine, sand and a candle!

6. Get Creative with Stuff You Have

Look around at what you have indoors that can survive outside. This can be something you would usually throw away or recycle. For instance, maybe you have some beautiful wine or other glass bottles laying around? These can be used to create pretty, personalized elements to your outdoor space that makes it your own.

Check out this cute idea — Bottle Trees. All you need are some colorful glass bottles and a gardening pot, bucket, or even a repurposed basket — all of these will create a lovely, sturdy base.
