How can I add a lattice design to a block fence?

I bought a house last year that has 2 picture windows. The left side had a wooden fence with a lattice attached. The wood was rotting on both the lattice and fence, so I decided to have a block fence constructed.

    Hi Terry1300,
    If you want the same look, you can pick up some lattice at Lowes or Home Depot and do the same thing your predecessors did. You could also just tape off the fence and paint the same design. In either case, you can paint the lattice look with your chose of color. Wishing you the best.

    Would some thicker yet flexible wire work to make your own!? You could make a butterfly or heart design???! Lol

    Paint the block fence whatever colour you wish, or leave it as is, and let it dry completely, if painted. Make a lattice design using painters tape and repaint the wall whatever colour you want. When you remove the tape, the colour of the wall will show through. If you painted the wall white before you put on the tape, the lattice design will be white. Be sure to let the paint dry completely before you put on the painters tape or the white paint will come up with the tape. You can also use stencils near the bottom of bunnies, cats, dogs or whatever. Then, paint grass on the bottom of the lattice and maybe some flowers:)

    Terri1300, obviously, Hometalkers are becoming invested in your wall. Please take before, during, during, and after photos and write a Post for Hometalk.com. We want to see how this turns out! ☺️

    Not knowing how tall the block fence is, would it be possible to paint the block white, buy one sheet of lattice to use as a template, temporarily attach the lattice to the wall, & spray paint a different color over the lattice, then remove the lattice leaving behind the look of it still being there.

    This is what the fence looked like before. But a lot of the bottom was rotting due to water damage.
