Carter Oosterhouse: How To Decorate A Picket Fence (VIDEO)

If you have a fence around your yard, why not decorate it? Try adding a pop of color to a white fence to make it more fun and inviting. Flowers potted in metal pails can be hung from slats and place on the ground in front of the fence for a youthful vibe. Colorful birdhouses hung in clusters and random patterns can also brighten things up and create a cheerful look. For a more traditional aesthetic, try hanging natural woven flower baskets from the posts.
