Outdoor Gazing Balls – Gardens, Yards and Pathways Decorations
If you are looking for an inexpensive way to give your yard or garden a makeover, then I suggest that you consider checking out some cheap gazing balls.
My favorite are the glass mosaic garden balls because they reflect different light colors in the sunlight. If you have never seen one in use, then you will be awed by how beautiful it looks out in the sun.
While these are made of mosaic glass tile, they are actually made to withstand the outdoor elements. This means that you do not have to worry about bad weather coming along and destroying it. You also don’t have to worry about it getting dull looking from sitting outside because that doesn’t seem to happen either.
There are a lot of different designs and sizes, but I want to show you my favorites. Keep reading if you want to check them out.

Alpine GRS118 Mosaic Gazing Ball
If you like the color orange, or if you have a lot of flowers in your garden that are this color, then you will definitely want to check out this gazing ball for gardens.
The mosaic tile design is slightly different from the one below as it is a tear drop design instead of the normal square tile design.
What I really love about it is that while orange is the dominant color, there is also a little of other colors in it – reds and yellow colors. But don’t worry – orange is definitely dominant.
But my very favorite thing about it is that it is made out of 100% recycled glass. Super eco-friendly garden decor option.
The size is approximately 10 x 10 x 12. And it weighs just under 3 lbs – so anyone can easily move it around the yard.
Alpine GRS420Blue Green Purple 10-in Mosaic Gazing Ball
looks great in a flower garden!
If you are having a hard time deciding on a color, then this multi-color mosaic gazing ball is the perfect choices.
You get some basic colors – Purple, Green, Blue – that not only look great just sitting amongst the healthy grass of your yard, but it looks even better next to some flowers. In my experience, the colors really pop when you sit it near some red flowers in your yard.
This isn’t a large gazing ball. It measures in at 10 x 10 x 10.
The total weight for it is just under 3 pounds – so heavy enough to stay in place but light enough for anyone to be able to move around the yard.
Gold Mosaic Gazing Ball
10″ round size
I used to live in Texas and my yard was more brown dirt than green grass. If that describes your yard or desert garden, then you will want to take a look at this gold color gazing garden ball.
The dominant color in the mosaic tiles is a rich gold color, but you get hues of other colors in the sun. I have seen some reds, some yellows and some greens sparkling in the sunlight. I think that it looks especially good in the fall as the autumn leaves start to fall.
The size for this one is 10 x 10 x 10. It does weigh in at a little more than the others at 4.5 lbs. Still likely light enough for most people to easily move around in the yard.
I find that this one looks best with a black metal gazing ball stand – great contrast!
Alpine Mosaic Glass Gazing Globe with Flower Pattern
pretty red gazing balls!
If red is your favorite color, then you cannot go wrong with this red mosaic gazing ball with flowers for your garden or yard.
The tiles on this one are dominantly red with some hues of silver for contrast. It looks really spectacular once the sunlight bounces off of it. You are certain to not be disappointed by this one.
It measures the standard 10 x 10 x 10 in size. And it weighs just at 4.3 lbs, so easy for even the weakest person to move around the garden or yard.
Unique Gazing Ball – Echo Valley Mosaic Earth Glass Gazing Globe
10-in size, hand blown glass gazing balls
If you want something really special for your home outdoor area, then this unique mosaic gazing ball is just what you need.
The mosaic tiles make up the continents and the oceans so that it resembles the Earth. The end result is an Earth globe for your yard area!
And just like the others, the sun reflects off the tiles brilliantly for a really beautiful outdoor effect.
The size is 10 x 10 x 10.
Another unique feature of this one is that is actually a hand blown glass gazing balls, which means that each one is slightly different from the one before it. Slight blimps and “imperfections” are expected as this is what makes each one a one-of-a-kind piece.
