Transforming your deck or patio into a more beautiful and pleasant space doesn’t have to be a costly chore. There are plenty of fun and easy ways to do it – check out these simple deck decorating ideas that cost under $20!

DIY Projects

The best way to guarantee a low cost for your deck decorating project is to do it yourself! Most of these projects can make use of scraps you have around the house or require minimal amounts of store-bought supplies. Easily craft planters made from scrap wood, decorate wreaths, personalize flower pots, hand-paint signs, build decorative tables from leftover pallets – the ideas are endless!

Tip: Save money on plants by buying seeds and growing them yourself, rather than buying from a nursery.

New Paint Job

Whether you’re changing up the color scheme of your deck or simply going for a fresher look, repainting your deck and wooden patio furniture can be cheap, and sometimes not even cost you a dime. Pulling out that unused paint that you have stored in your home will allow you to give your deck a brand new look and feel for free!

Tip: Ensure that paint has been properly stored before use, and make sure you have enough to cover the entire space you plan to paint before starting the project.

Tabletop Décor

Tea lights and small candles are a very inexpensive way to illuminate your deck. Picking bright colored candles that flow well with the style of your outdoor living space will create a fun environment that can be enjoyed long after the sun goes down. Centerpieces and table runners are also great examples of décor that can be found for under $20!

Tip: Placing small square mirrors underneath candle holders can help the candles reflect more light.


Chair cushions and decorative pillows are easily affordable and can add both color and comfort to your deck. If your deck doesn’t yet have a color scheme or style, use this opportunity to create one!

Tip: Always bring cushions and fabric upholstery indoors during the winter months and rainy days to extend their life and keep them clean.
