Your backyard can be a real sanctuary during the beautiful spring and summer months. Make your patio a comfortable and welcoming oasis with these gorgeous handmade decor pieces from the talented artisans at Etsy.
It’s the small touches that really give your patio some personality and a true summer vibe. If you’re looking to add a cute and unique quality to your backyard, you must check out these glass fireflies from Kari’s Beads. The wire stems can be wrapped around branches or poked into your garden or the soil of your potted plants for adorable pops of charm. And as if these little guys weren’t cool enough already, they spend the day using solar power to charge, and then come nightfall, they glow just like real fireflies.
If you’re excited about spending your warm summer nights out on the patio with friends and family or simply relaxing on your own, lighting is important. This Shoji bamboo candle lantern from Touch the Earth (also on Facebook) is a beautiful way to light up your backyard this season. The shop offers this style of hand-printed original art on fibreglass in a variety of lovely images, such as trees, cranes and lotuses, so have a look around to see what piece will best contribute to the decor and vibe of your backyard oasis.
Transporting appetizers, drinks and other necessary items from the kitchen to the patio while entertaining guests can become tiring. But with a cute tray such as this weathered wood tray from CastawaysCountry, you can transfer everything at once and then keep the tray out as an attractive display. Plus, you can request to have the tray made in whichever colour you prefer so you can ensure it goes perfectly with the rest of your patio decor.
When you’re entertaining outside for a long period, you want to ensure your patio not only looks nice, but that your guests are comfortable as well. Fortunately pillow covers, such as this tropical throw pillow from Simply Shades, can achieve both in a flash. The shop offers plenty of colours, styles and patterns, all made from durable fabrics that are suitable for the outdoors, so have a look around.
