Some of the Weirdest Lawn Art Ideas and Lawn Ornaments Across the Country

While most new homeowners are highly focused on finding the perfect furniture, artwork and rugs that will accentuate his/her taste, others have different concerns.


What’s the best way to make sure your home stands out from your neighbors’? Spice up the curb appeal and add some funky lawn decorations! And man, I found some really funky lawn ornaments. 


It’s no secret that those who enjoy lawn décor pride themselves in the multitude of trinkets that call their yard home, but let’s face it. Sometimes the line is crossed and this décor is not only odd, but also overwhelming.


For example, take a look at this Milwaukee home that went viral for its many varying weird lawn decorations. There’s everything from dinosaurs to sailboats!

A classic yard decoration, lawn gnomes, have been around for years. Although they are no new novelty, these ornaments have changed in shape and style.


Who knew they could stand on their heads and breakdance?


And apparently gnomes can also be bikers. You can get a Biker Dude and Biker Babe gnome duo that will complement your own biker lifestyle.



2. Bigfoot

My mom spotted these in a yard while traveling. So if you’ve been thinking, “Enough with the animals! Show me the dinnerware,” don’t worry, the lawn art specialists have thought of it all. 




I'm not sure about the purpose of a sideways teacup since it can't even collect rain. But if you like to take your afternoon tea in your yard or garden, just pour your beverage into this teacup stake and enjoy.
