Over the last several months, art poles (also referred to as garden poles and peace poles) have been all the rage for garden / yard décor. Colorful and eye-catching, this latest trend has inspired people to want to make their own.
If you’re a crafty person who simply loves expressing him/herself regardless of the cost, this is a unique project you can use in your own yard or give as a gift. However, there are times when doing it yourself doesn’t save money.
While there’s nothing like a muse to spark your creative impulses, designing and building a single garden pole can end up being more expensive than buying one (especially if you find a discount). So, before you let your inner DIYer loose, take a look at the typical expenses (in time and dollars) so you can make a sound decision.
