Our team’s 13 favorite Walmart outdoor decor items:

1. Brighten up a backyard space with this Better Homes & Garden outdoor rug.

Bring your space to life with a colorful accent rug. This outdoor rug from Walmart features a medallion pattern and bold colors like turquoise and yellow. It’s weather resistant, durable, and comes highly recommended by Collin, herself!

Collin owns this rug and she couldn’t be happier with it:

“I LOVE this colorful outdoor rug so much! The quality is great for the price, and it adds such a fun pop of color to my back patio. Area rugs are the best for changing up a space in such an affordable way!”

2. This affordable Walmart planter looks so upscale.

There are so many amazing Walmart planters and this one is no exception! In fact, we’re positively head over heels for this chic planter from Better Homes & Gardens. It has a matte, ceramic finish and features a modern design that can fit seamlessly with a variety of styles. If you prefer a pop of color, it’s also available in green and pink!

My teammate, Lina, thinks this Walmart planter is worth the hype:

“Now I can see why this planter is so popular! LOOK HOW BIG IT IS FOR THE PRICE!! It’s honestly so well-made and stylish. I love the design, and it’s very heavy. I love that you can use it either inside or outside and it has a drainage hole. My indoor snake plant is very happy and stylin’ in this Walmart planter!

3. This stylish Better Homes & Gardens planter gives off earthy vibes.

Calling all minimalists! This contemporary planter might just be the perfect outdoor decor addition to your space. It’s the right size to fit on a patio, balcony, or back porch, and we love the natural, woven design that complements a plethora of styles from bohemian to farmhouse.

Here’s what Hip2Save’s Emily had to say about hers:

“Walmart is seriously giving those high-end home decor stores a run for their money. Their standing planters are STUNNING! This cylinder stand may be small, but it packs a mighty decor impact! While it has a plastic liner, I find it’s so easy to drop in a grower plant so that you don’t have to get your hands dirty with repotting. All you have to do is screw on the legs, pop in a plant and place!”

4. This Toramina speckled planter is perfect for smaller spaces.

This Walmart planter is anything but plain! If you want to showcase your plants, consider this ceramic planter that features an eye-catching teal glaze and a modern rounded shape. It’s not just pretty, but it is practical, too!

And you won’t have to worry about water damage on your wooden surfaces, since it comes with a removable plug that lets you drain your water when and where you want.

Emily even found a dual use for it! We love how she used it to chill wine on a sunny day! What a stunning display. Since it is so versatile, this item is one of our favorite Walmart finds.

My teammate, Emily, thinks this Walmart planter is tops:

“Talk about dazzling! This planter is even more gorgeous in person. It’s the perfect size to house a hanging plant in a grower pot (no extra dirt needed!) but I’ve found a few other ways I plan to use it this summer. I stuck a couple bottles of wine in and filled with ice — summer soirees just got soooo fancy! I’m also going to repurpose it with some fire rock and a gel fire can. You can even find them with fuel that’s safe for s’mores so it’s a super pretty way to put together a s’mores feast on summer nights!”

5. Display plants or serve snacks on this modern stand that costs less than $25.

When it comes to Walmart patio furniture, we’re loving this trendy stand made of water-resistant fir wood and iron. The simple yet unique design of the legs draws your eyes upwards towards your plants. If you like a clean and sleek space, this stand will fit right in! Use it outdoors or inside as a side table or plant stand.

Emily thinks this stylish stand has transformed her space:

“I needed something to elevate a couple of my pots and these wooden stand couldn’t be more fitting. I love that I can use it as a side table too. The legs screw on very easily and it’s surprisingly sturdy.”

6. Add pizazz to your porch with this unique hanging planter from Walmart.

Looking for hanging planters? This attractive one holds 8-inch pots in place as they gently sway in the breeze. Adding a few zip ties will provide even more support. It’s one of our favorite Walmart home decor picks for your outdoor areas – we love that it doesn’t look like just any hanging planter! Prepare for compliments when you display it in your space!

Emily loves the way this hanging planter looks:

“Love the intrigue this hanging planter adds! I did add a bit more support with a couple cable zip ties, and I found out the hard way I needed to head back to the store for a planter to go inside (this is the one I got), but with those additions, this hanging display is perfect. The hanging loop slide perfectly over the edge of my pergola, though I may move it indoors to hang from a hook from the ceiling.”

7. Create a peaceful space with this Better Homes & Garden 6-wick scented candle.

Add some subtle lighting and fragrance to your outdoor oasis with the gorgeous Dave & Jenny Marrs 6-wick candles that are available on Walmart.com. They add an artistic touch to any space, and come in six lovely scents (we want them all!) 😍

Hip2Save’s Lina was lucky enough to snag one in the Peach scent:

“This is a beautiful candle! Not only is the vessel itself a gorgeous pottery, the peach scent is nice smelling too. It burns evenly, and overall a nice option! This looks very high-end and would make an excellent gift.”

8. This trendy planter by Dave and Jenny Marrs is worth swooning over.

This may be one of the best Walmart planters – we can’t believe it only costs $12! This cool planter looks so much more expensive. We love the versatility of the neutral color palette and think the rattan design is a head-turner. Scoop one up for your patio or gift one to your favorite green thumb.

9. Show off your personality for under $5 with this outdoor throw pillow.

One reason Walmart home decor is the bomb is because of the low prices! If you want to show off your personality, scoop up fun reversible pillows that costs under $5! These weather-resistant outdoor throw pillows feature upbeat sayings and designs that are sure to liven up your space. They are super easy to clean and spot treat, and are fade & UV-resistant to keep them looking great for a long time!

Hip2Save’s Melinda thinks this throw pillow added a bit of sunshine to her sunroom:

“I can’t get over how affordable these Mainstays outdoor throw pillows are. There’s such a variety of colors/patterns and for under $5 bucks you just can’t beat it. The Bee Happy one that I have is so adorable!”

10. Get both the planter and the plant stand when you buy this set from Better Homes & Gardens.

Handcrafted by artisans, this rattan planter adds a touch of class to any room or outdoor area. It’s sturdy, stylish, and just make your plants look better. Walmart customers can’t stop singing its praises and Hip2Save’s Emily is no exception!

Here’s what Emily had to say about this lovely Walmart planter set:

“When you want to make more of a wow-statement, opt for the large black planter stand (also available in tan). It’s a bit higher up off the ground compared to the tan planter I have, and a little wider as well. Even though it’s somewhat see-through due to the spacing between the resin reeds, you can still place a plant in a grower pot inside for easy ‘planting’. The dark contrast of the planter and the wooden legs gives a mid-century style to it that I love!”

11. Create ambiance with a set of string lights.

Set the mood! These Edison-style string lights have a cool, vintage vibe, and give off just the right amount of glow. String them up on your pergola, deck railings, fences, or sunrooms – anywhere you want to create the perfect ambiance. They are a must-have outdoor decor item!

My teammate Melinda is loving her new lights:

“These Better Homes & Garden string lights are so pretty. They are shatterproof which is a plus. I love how durable the wire is that the lights hang from. They keep our sunroom cozy!”

12. This versatile bubble planter from Walmart can make any space look more modern.

We think the contemporary look of this 3-ring bubble planter is perfect for 2023! It’s best for somewhat indoor spaces like your sunroom or screened-in porch. My teammates, Emily and Sara, both own this planter and have found so many uses for it besides just holding plants!

They have used it to display wash towels in the bathroom, to hold utensils in indoor and outdoor kitchens, and even turned it into a beautiful centerpiece for the dining table. However you choose to style this unusual planter, it is certain to be a statement piece!

Hip2Save’s Sara found that this planter works well in the kitchen too:

“I love this planter! I actually use it for my pretty kitchen utensils and it looks so good on our counter. I rushed to Walmart when I saw it launch because I knew they’d go fast and the price was so so good! I would have grabbed more but I was lucky enough to get the last one in my store before they sold out! If this is available, add it to your cart immediately!”

13. Give your outdoor space a finishing touch with this easy-to-clean outdoor rug.

Make your outdoor space more cozy with a quality area rug. This one from Walmart comes in several different designs, from pineapples to geometric patterns. Not only is this rug a cinch to clean, but it’s also stain and fade-resistant. We love how it adds dimension to the room and ties a look together. Hip2Save’s Jenna loves hers so much that she’s buying a second one!

Hip2Save’s Melinda and Jenna are both impressed with the quality of this rug:

“I grabbed this plastic reversible outdoor rug on a whim when we posted a deal on it. I absolutely love it for our sunroom. The black and white color I got is so trendy and works perfectly with my outdoor furniture. I love that it stays clean – I can wipe it down or vacuum on it no problem. Amazing quality and such a good price.” – Melinda

“I grabbed the Mainstays 6′ Round Reversible Outdoor Area Rug in Brown Leopard and I am super impressed! It looks great in person and feels super durable. It was super easy to roll out and didn’t take long until it laid flat. I have it on my balcony which sees a lot of rain in the spring, so this is perfect! It doesn’t get soggy like other outdoor rugs and it wipes clean! Plus, the best part, it looks great with my little bistro set! I’m going to grab another for the back patio!” – Jenna
