What materials suit best for porch and other outdoor decorations? In my opinion such materials are stone and wood. Although such decorations can be quite pricey. I bet you have some old stuff that you want was made of stone to decorate your porch with it. Now you can. Although you need to done some work on it.
For example, here is an old lamp that Becky from Nine is Fine has made to look like it’s made of stone. She used Plaster of Paris as a weight, glue the lamp together and painted it using stone spray paint. She provided instructions to the process on her blog. You easily can make your porch looks cute without spending a lot of money on decorations.
