Decorating a Chain Link Fence

I have a fairly large backyard that is enclosed with a chain link fence. Does anyone have any pictures of how they have decorated their chain link fence with GJ? Mine is soooo ugly and boring.

Hi Arabella! Welcome! If you go to the search bar at the bottom of the page and type in fence, you should get a lot of posts regarding decorating fences...our junkers have all kinds of fences, so any of the ideas can be used on chain link fences as well. If you want to give yourself a more "solid" backdrop to work with you could get some of those strips that you weave between the links in the fence and go from there. I'm sure some of our other folks will have some ideas as well!

A friend on the Texas forum posted there about using plastic lattice panels on her fence. I really like it and have linked it here for you.

Dog gone it! I am trying to find which magazine I have where I saw that someone took fabric and wove it into their chain link fence to create giant dragonflies. It was gorgeous! I'm thinking it was a Birds and Blooms magazine but not sure. If I find it, I'll be sure to post the information. They didn't explain how to do it though. It was a contest for the most creative garden decoration.

Thanks for sharing Roselee's fence, rock_oak_deer! Chain link is a very hardy fence but not very attractive. I like Roselee's way of prettying it up too.

I hope you find it Luna, it sounds fantastic.
Now that we have a little dog, I'm thinking of how to contain him in the back yard, and a low fence on part of the property may be the answer, so I'm going to search here for fence also!

Arabella, i'm assuming you looked at Linda Sew and sews fence posted just recently. She scavanged wood and covered her chain link fence.

It was in the February-March 2011 edition of Birds and Blooms. Below is a link to their web site with the winners of the For Less Budget contest. I know everyone here will appreciate the other winners too. The woman who did the dragonflies used plastic tablecloths. It really does look neat.

I found this site--it may have been on here before.

There are pictures of 'lace fence'. I think it could be painted with a large stencil---or freehanded with white or colored paint.
