Fencing plays a starring role in the home decor news these days. Youll see weathered pickets or rugged fence boards ingeniously repurposed as living room wall art or headboards for the bedroom. But sometimes a fence is just a fence not something to be recycled, but an actual structure that provides privacy, security, and shade to your yard. Theres no reason for this essential item to be boring, though. Here are 8 fences imaginatively decorated by Hometalk members. Try doing one of these projects yourself to delight the eye and perhaps add curb appeal to your home.

1. Marble-Embellished Fence

Heres a whimsically embellished fence courtesy of Creating Really Awesome Free Things (C.R.A.F.T.). Her mom created the shiny decorations by drilling holes in wooden fencing and wielding a mallet to pound in a jillion childrens marbles. Who else loves the sparkle?

2. Peek a Bark Fence

A privacy fence will keep passersby from peeking in, but what if you have a four-footed somebody who wants to peek out? Joe L cut a hole in his board fence to let his beautiful Sheltie buddy Blaze watch what everyone was doing in the back field. The peek a bark hole is lined with plywood so Blazes fur doesnt snag.

3. DIY Repurposed Tin Can Hanging Planters

Try this cheap and easy way to add charming pops of color to an uninspiring stretch of fence. NewlyWoodwards hung her fence with spray-painted tin cans full of flowers. Voila! Instant rustic planters that brighten up the landscape on a budget.

4. Sunflower Fence Art

Quirky Cool Living used her backyard fence as a blank slate, on which she expressed her inner artist with the help of repurposed table parts. She daubed the table legs lipstick red and added a cheerful painted sunflower to each one.

5. Planter Boxes to Beautify a Fence

My Garden Shine crafted reclaimed pallet wood planter holders to beautify this fence, and then brushed them with waterproof deck stain. The protective finish keeps the boxes looking lovely no matter what the weather. Plants can be swapped out according to the season.

6. Fence Planted with Wheel Cover Flowers

This imaginative fence update comes from Susan Shinn Cesarini and her mother. They painted metal wheel covers to look like flowers, attached them to the fence, and added free form leaves. Way to keep your garden colorful all year round!

7. Spring Fence Flower Hangers 

Galvanized buckets, metal butterflies, and scrap wood are three popular garden dcor elements. Rustic Rediscovered combined them into brilliantly hued flower hangers that look tempting enough to attract some real-life butterflies to her Orlando fence.

8. Fence-Mounted Bird Houses

Donna S did a fabulous job of decorating her fence using recycled roadside finds and other bits and pieces. She started by using up leftover paint on the fences eclectic color scheme and topped it all off with a fabulous collection of birdhouses plus a vintage iron bed frame.
