One of the best things about outdoor decorating is the sheer variety of styles and looks one can choose from. For outdoor spaces of homes, for example, the outdoor decor can often be designed to reflect the architectural style of the home.
These can range from Mid-Century Modern, Cape Cod, Mountain, and Shingle homes to Farmhouse, Ranch, and Contemporary Craftsman styles. For most homeowners, the decor in patios, decks, and other outdoor spaces would complement the architecture as well as their own personal tastes.
However, the beauty of outdoor decor is that it can also serve to create a charming and relaxing oasis and a space with an intentionally different ambience.
Choosing Wildlife Art Themed Decor
One of the easiest ways to create an outdoor look and feel that evokes the great outdoors and the time-honored traditions of American outdoor life is with wildlife-themed decor.
From bird feeders, bird houses, and bird baths to fountains, garden statues and lighting, all these and more can foster an atmosphere of being “in the outdoors” with just a hint of wilderness.
One of the errors that many homeowners make in selecting outdoor decor items, however, is choosing poorly made and inferior products. No matter where you live, the great outdoors is not always so great on anything that is left out there day-in and day-out. And some climates can be particularly harsh on outdoor decor items.
A not-so-secret tip, then, is to choose wisely.
Covered patios, for example, can house items that might not last long on an exposed deck. And some climates are going to wreak havoc on yard decor every winter or, in some regions, every summer. In addition to seasonal weather extremes, altitude and the prevalence of wind can be deciding factors, as well.
One more factor to consider when decorating your own little piece of “the great outdoors” is theme, or style.
These can range from Cabin style to Farmhouse to Southwest. And even variations or combinations of these and more. Even if your indoor space and your home’s exterior consists primarily of one style, or look, your outdoor style can be different.
In fact, your outdoor space can serve as a unique place to escape to or entertain in.
Ideas For Wildlife Themed Outdoor Decor
At Wild Wings, we offer a wide selection of art-related outdoor decor products. The styles and themes represent a broad variety to fit every taste.
Clocks and Thermometers
Even in the outdoors it’s nice to know the time and the temperature. And we’ve got that covered with these classy and rustic two-in-one wall clocks and thermometers. The clock face is a large shotgun shell with the gauge marked at six o'clock.
With a noble hunting dog or wild duck emblazoned across the clock face, these durable pieces are crafted from recycled aluminum and finished in a rustic bronze glaze with Alumi-Shield.
Name and Garden Signs
There is something particularly charming and appealing about well-designed outdoor signs. And garden plaques also speak of good taste and enduring beauty. This particular example is a great representation of that.
These hand-crafted, one at a time, signs are made of rust-free, recycled aluminum with a weather-resistant finish to withstand the harshest conditions. The 18-inch-long lawn stakes and hardware are included and the top and bottom lines can be personalized with up to 17 characters that are 1.75-inches high.
Birdhouses and Feeders
Birds are welcome guests for any outdoor space. Their flashes of bright color, their sounds and songs in the air, and the added touch of wildlife and nature are great additions to the yard. And a birdhouse or feeder from Wild Wings will keep multiple songbirds returning year after year.
Wild Wings has several bird feeders made with sturdy metal and evoke a rustic charm. Painted in bright colors and floral styles, they’ll add both color and bird movement to your yard. In addition, we carry a beautiful hummingbird feeder for those rare and wonderful visits from nature’s tiniest birds.
We also offer a whimsical metal sculpture-style rustic birdhouse to hang from your tree or outside your kitchen window.
For your outdoor lighting, capture the charming vintage style of an open-air metal cage stand-up lantern pose with a soft candlelight glow. Featuring an antiqued green finish, this metal candle holder lantern post holds a three-inch candle.
Not keen on having candlelight for your outdoor space? A rustic solar lantern hung from a porch or fencepost can light up your deck or patio at night. These versatile fixtures can make it easier for you and your guests to walk through gardens or yards in the evening.
A pair of Wild Wings candle lanterns add the soft radiance of candlelight. These lanterns are made from galvanized metal with a gray finish and four glass panels printed with full color art.
