These rain chains not only look beautiful, but they're also functional. So let's find out how to create a stunning display of rain chains right outside your home, whether in your entryway, patio, or garden.

Elevate the Look of Your Home's Entrance or Garden

Whether you use rain chains as functional downspouts or purely for their decorative appeal, they are a great way to elevate your home's entrance to a whole new level. So let me list a few creative options for using rain chains outside your main door.

Rain chain outside the door

1. Rain Chain Planter: This is my favorite! Use a planter with pebbles or rocks to hold the bottom of the rain chain. Choose a planter that complements the style and aesthetic of your home's exterior, and consider planting flowers or greenery for an added pop of color and texture.

2. Rain Chain Fountain: Create a soothing fountain effect by attaching a basin to your rain chain and connecting it to a water source. The gentle sound of the water flowing through the rain chain fountain will create a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

3. Wind Chimes and Spinners: Since they are made of copper, our rain chain can be repurposed as wind chimes or spinners. While they produce pleasant sounds when they are hit by the wind or spin in the breeze, you can also add bells, chimes, or other decorative elements.

4. Hanging Art: Have you considered hanging the rain chains outside your main door? Well, you should try it! And to play with your artistic self, you can add additional elements such as beads, crystals, or other decorative pieces to enhance its visual appeal.

5. Outdoor Lighting: How about an eye-catching way to light up your outdoor space for a celebration or special occasion? Use rain chains to create a unique outdoor lighting feature. String small lights or lanterns along the chain to add a warm and inviting glow to your entryway.

6. Outdoor Decor: If you are an outdoor décor fan, use rain chains in your gardens by incorporating them into garden sculptures, pergolas, or trellises. You can hang small potted plants or flowers from the rain chain links to create a unique and eye-catching display.
