Whether you want to decorate an empty stone wall, a wooden fence or an unappealing empty corner, recycling a bike for a flower holder is an excellent idea.

Garden decorations made with modern or vintage bikes look fantastic. Rust or bright paint colors add character and excitement to any garden design. You can renovate your old bike and paint, or use just its frame for creating a unique centerpiece in eco style for your outdoor space. You can recycle metal parts creating unusual combinations with flowers on pots or upcycle your bike frame by painting bright colors. Small and large, two and three-wheel bicycles are excellent for bringing bold patterns and creative details into your garden.
