I’ve included a group of outdoor frog decor items from Amazon and Etsy at the bottom of the post to purchase if you like the look.

Two blue frogs in a garden pot.

This cute frog yard decor idea shows that you can easily incorporate whimsical frog decor into any garden pot. Old ceramic frog statues could have been added to the trash but, instead, have been recycled and look really cute as a pot ornament.

The two frogs are “just chillin'” against the grass plant, and remind us to do the same.

I can't find the cast iron frog door stop anywhere! It doesn't show up on Plow & Hearth (where you note it is available). Do you know where I can find this?

Hi Rebecca. My blog normally alerts me when a product has sold out so that I can change the wording, but this did not happen in this case. I searched for it on the site and they no longer offer the product and I also can't find it anywhere else. It's a shame, since it is so cute! Carol

Re: the green/black frog rocks. What did you use for their black eyes?

Hi Marie. The photo was shared from Imgur (link below the photo) but it looks to me like rounded metal spheres that have been cut in half. They are hollow on the inside of the eye. Painted black and a small piece of metal attached for the eyeball. Carol
