Although it’s August, it’s never too late to spruce up your balcony! After all, even once summer comes to a close, you still have a few weeks of nice weather to enjoy. While outdoor decor can oftentimes be rather pricey, we’re here with a few tips and tricks to make the most out of your budget. Check out these DIY balcony ideas on a budget to create your own outdoor oasis.

Pallet Seating

It’s no surprise that patio furniture can be expensive. Luckily, pallet seating has become very trendy! The best part is, it’s affordable compared to purchasing outdoor chairs and couches. Head to your local hardware store to purchase some pallets, and add comfort with cushions and blankets. Not only is this crafty, but it looks effortlessly stylish!

Add Some Lattice

Lattice brings a ton of style to your balcony. Placing lattice against the balcony wall can fill up empty wall space while giving you a spot to string lights or weave vines and plants. Not to mention, it doesn’t take up any floor space!

Balcony Bar

If you’re looking for a creative way to incorporate seating to your balcony, try this DIY balcony bar by The California Local! While you do need to have woodworking skills, this balcony bar is totally worth it. Additionally, it really maximizes the space you have on your patio or balcony. Rather than purchase a table, why not try crafting your own bar?

DIY Plant Pot Covers

An easy way to transform the look of your plant pots is with placemats! This craft by Lily Ardor is the perfect way to spice up your pots. All you need are placemats of your choice, velcro, and wire. In just 15 minutes, your pots will look brand new without spending too much.

Whether you’re on the hunt for some new outdoor furniture or simply want to elevate your balcony decor, these DIY balcony ideas give you the creative freedom to meet your design vision without breaking the bank!
