Stuff from your yard often contains all sorts of parasites and other nasty things that can cause disease in your tank and foul the water. And it may not be safe to use non-aquarium rocks, wood, plastic sunflowers for standard aquarium use because many contain harmful dyes, and paints or fall apart once they sit in water.
Your best bet for safe decorations is to purchase pieces from a reputable aquarium dealer. I can’t emphasize this important point enough. Unsafe decorations can kill fish, ruin your aquarium conditions, and cost you a lot of money and heartache.
Statuettes and toys that you find around the house may contain internal parts made of metal, which cause destruction in a tank. Dyes and other surface materials can produce ill effects on fish and other species.
