1. Bright Spring Planters with Curly Branches
These striking silhouettes provide an elegant frame for a doorway. Boxy, industrial gray planters are brought to life with tumbling blossoms. Slender branches spiral upward, adding height without crowding out the door or blocking the view from the porch windows. This plant has an enticing statuesque shape, like a piece of natural art right at your doorstep.
2. Framed Hanging Basket Decor Idea
A freestanding rectangular wooden frame is easy to DIY out of spare plywood. It can be transformed into a charming porch piece by installing a hook and hanging a basket of cheerful flowers. The top of the frame is the perfect place to paint or inscribe an inviting slogan that is unique to your home.
3. DIY Rustic Wood Welcome Sign
Wood is so popular with decorators because it is quaint yet timeless. A slat of wood that reads WELCOME in fresh white letters is a no-frills addition to any porch. This sign isn’t hard to make, and it looks natural propped up next to a potted plant. Painting the word vertically instead of horizontally adds an interesting twist.
4. Cute Upcycled Rain Boot Planters
When you or someone in your house has outgrown their rain boots, give them a new home on the front porch by turning them into adorable twin planters. They’re already waterproof, and they have enough depth to hold plenty of soil. Their fun colors and patterns complement flowers well. Recycled boot planters are a quirky detail for a one-of-a-kind porch.
5. House Number Flower Pot Decoration
Home numbers appear printed on mailboxes and often nailed beside doors. But a more clever way of displaying your address is by painting each number on a pot, filling them with your flower of choice, and lining them up on the front steps. Numbered pots are an artistic way of identifying your house and making it stand out from the neighbors’.
6. DIY Milk Can Patio Table
Centuries ago, large metal cans with tapered tops and handles were designed to safely transport milk by railway. The milk can may not haul dairy anymore, but its sturdy body and mushroom-shaped lid make it the perfect base for a small patio table. You can paint the can and tabletop the same color to create porch furniture with vintage charm.
7. Pretty Monogram Planter Project for Spring
Monograms are all the rage in decorating. Take your signature letter to the next level by DIY-ing a large wooden initial with depth, not unlike a shadowbox project. Install upturned shelves, and fill them with soil and small clusters of flowers. When they bloom, the effect is gorgeous–blossoms bursting out of the wooden frame, bringing your letter to life.
8. Wagon Board and Metal Bucket Planter
The allure of the wagon board is its rugged individuality. No two wagon boards are exactly alike, and their irregular texture gives your decoration an authentic vibe. The rough wood contrasts nicely with fresh, bright flowers. A metal bucket planter adds another tough texture to this country-inspired design, which can be propped up anywhere on the porch.
9. Floral Spring Planter with Bird Nest
Turn a regular planter into a creative miniature environment that embodies the beauty of spring. A full-bodied plant arrangement includes a variety of shapes and sizes: long stems, tumbling leaves, soft grasses, and many colorful flowers. But the faux birds’ nest, with its artful shape, is the cherry on top. This planter is a spring paradise for your neighborhood fauna.
10. Springy DIY Upcycled Drawer Planters
Spring cleaning. Downsizing. Minimalism. Whatever you call your urge to purge, it likely puts a lot of your old drawers out of a job. Take them from empty to elegant with a pastel paint job and a bunch of blossoms. A shallow drawer can hold at least four miniature flower pots, and the homey appeal of indoor-turned-outdoor furniture is irresistible.
11. Welcome Sign with Mason Jar Flower Vase
No one is immune to the charms of the classic Mason jar. The iconic glass container has been upcycled into decorations, crafts, wedding favors, etc. You can use it to fashion an eye-catching 3D sign for your front door. Paint “Welcome” onto a wooden board, affix the jar to it with a metal ring, and fill it with fresh-cut flowers.
12. Herb Garden Hanging Basket Project
Fresh herbs smell great, add flavor to food, and are easy to grow. A hanging herb garden is a fun project that will yield plants you can use. Thyme, cilantro, rosemary, mint, and parsley are some of the herbs that you can plant in your basket garden, which hangs on the porch, giving off inviting aromas.
13. DIY Branch Ladder Flower Display
Brighten up the corner of your porch with a ladder of flowers. Build the “ladder” out of narrow but sturdy branches for a rustic fairytale look. In between each rung, hang small pots of flowers that aren’t too heavy. Using the same flowers in each rung will produce a unified look that’s part planter, part natural art piece.
14. Flower and Branch Milk Can Decoration
The milk can, also called a milk churn, earns a place on your porch with its interesting shape and retro appearance. Offset the heavy duty profile of the can by filling it with delicate branches and sprigs of flowers. The milk can is the perfect place to house branches because it’s deep yet narrow enough to create a bouquet-like arrangement.
15. DIY Hanging Gutter Planters Project
Repurpose unused rain gutters into cute planting shelves for herbs and small flowers. They are lightweight, so you can build a multi-tiered vertical display that is compact enough to fit your porch. Punch holes in the gutters at either end and thread them with thick rope to attach them to one another, and hang the top one from two hooks.
16. Pretty Forsythia Wreath For Spring
Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas. Welcome spring with a radiant forsythia wreath. Brilliant yellow forsythia blossoms adorn bundles of twigs that swirl outward in a sunburst pattern. The undeniably springy wreath will brighten up your doorway for the season. Or, you could place it somewhere else on your porch, to draw the eye outward.
17. Easy DIY Upcycled Chair Planter
Do you have old chairs sitting around your house, using up space? Take a seat outside and breathe new life into it. Fill the seat with soil, and you’ve made a unique planter for your porch or yard. The back of the chair provides a nice backdrop for flowers with interesting shapes.
18. Vintage Window Floral Spring Porch Art
From castles to cottages, we’ve always loved the way flowers twist and climb up manmade structures. Recreate this timeless, romantic vision with a vintage window frame, usually made of iron and wood. Mount it on the wall as art. Loop your blossoms through the curling metal bars to bring it to life. This is a whimsical way to display flowers.
19. DIY Grass Shadow Box House Number
A shadowbox is a DIY-able display case that is often used to show off photographs and keepsakes. You can build a springy shadowbox for your front porch that contains something important to you–your house number. Purchase or assemble a wooden frame, and attach a patch of fake grass to the bottom. Then nail your numbers on top of the grass.
20. Flower and Branch Planters for Spring
Small, compact flower pots are the norm. But tall branches threaded with tiny blossoms make for a more dramatic spring front porch. Their graceful silhouettes frame the door elegantly. You can play around with different planter and flower sizes to design a stylish assemblage of varying heights. Grasses and regular flowers complete the stunning effect.
21. Easy Fruit Crate Porch Décor Idea for Spring
Don’t know how to arrange your miniature potted plants? Find wooden fruit crate and paint it to suit your porch décor. Stand it on its side. There is room for two smaller pots on top of the crate, and one bigger one inside it. It’s a thoughtful way to upcycle your old crates into something beautiful.
22. Upcycled Chandelier Flower Pot Decoration
Chandeliers are an interior decorating staple. What happens when you bring them outside? Pick a chandelier with candle trays wide enough to support small flower pots. Give the chandelier and the pots a matching spring paint makeover. Then fill the pot with flowers and put them where the candle would go. It’s a gorgeous, unexpected decoration for your porch.
23. Cute Spring Birdcage Floral Decoration
Old birdcages have an attractive shape; they look like miniature palaces. If you’re not a bird person, turn the cage into a small terrarium for flowers. Tiny, colorful blossoms look beautiful bursting through the bars of the birdcage. You can even add a little fake bird for extra cuteness. This is a spring project you’ll treasure all year long.
24. Galvanized Bucket Hanging Planter Project
You have a lot of plants, but nowhere to put them. Why not try a tall wood frame that can fit all your plants at once? Assemble the simple frame as tall as you want it. Then pot your plants in matching galvanized steel buckets that will hang down from the crossbars. It’s a veritable plant museum.
25. Lanterns, Chalkboard, and Antique Glass Porchscape
A multimedia project will make your porch stand out this spring. Scribble a spring-worthy message on a small chalkboard. Continue the vintage vibe by adding old lanterns with candles. Branches full of flowers take on an old-fashioned flair when balanced in antique glasses. Many different elements come together in this quaint little scene.
26. Giant Clay Spring Flower Planter
Clay is classic. This spring, house your blooms in a huge glazed clay planter. The natural, earthy patterns of the clay offset the blooming freshness of your flowers. Plus, the pot is sturdy and built to withstand the shifty spring weather. A wealth of tiny flowers looks best in this big planter.
27. Antique Lantern Easter Bunny Porch Decoration
Nothing says spring like the Easter bunny! Easter decorations don’t have to be loud and distracting. Place a little easter bunny inside an old lantern, along with his favorite trappings–tiny Easter eggs and baskets. Put the lantern on a bed of flowers or a vibrant forsythia wreath. This subtle, adorable display is sure to put you in the Easter spirit.
28. Shabby Chic Easter or Spring Planters
Imperfections aren’t always a bad thing. Faded paint, patches of rust, and dented metal have character that sparkly new stuff doesn’t. The glorious greens of spring are even more striking next to shabby textures. So don’t be afraid to relocate some plants (and even a few Easter eggs!) into that scrappy old bucket or that half-rusted container.
29. Easy Grapevine and Flower Vase Display
This project is a simple way to try something new with your vases this spring. Choose a glass container with a wide mouth. A plethora of flowers in vivid spring colors is a must. But the bottom half of this vase is just as special. Fill it with grapevines to make it look like a nest from which blossoms emerge.
30. Antique Milk Can Planter Decoration
The rusty old milk is a vintage decorator’s dream. This time, don’t repaint it. Let its faded color enhance the beauty of the flowers and leaves inside it. Your tallest sticks, loopiest vines, and widest, brightest blossoms will coexist nicely in the large, rustic can. It gives your porch a splash of vintage comfort.
31. DIY Monogram Spring Grapevine Wreath
Declare that your house is a home with this cute monogrammed wreath. On a circular base of grapevines, fix your letter of choice to one side. On the other side, let fresh flowers do the talking. Throw in a patterned bow for extra interest. This delightful spring wreath is unique to your house.
32. Tiered Flower Pot House Number Decoration
Put your favorite small flowers in this multi-tiered display. Use three pots of descending size, stacked on top of one another. The one on top can hold the largest flower. Paint your pots in a springy style–polka dots and pastels are perfect. Adorn the bottom bot with your house number, and the display is both fun and functional.
