Formerly the headpiece to a traditional wooden bed frame, this unique and reimagined piece of furniture is reinvented as a place to rest on your front porch. While it’s sturdy enough to sit a while, it also makes a great place to decorate with some of your favorite pillows and plants.
7. Keep It Sustainable With Felt
A bright display of strong color is vibrant and can elevate your energy. While a small wreath of fresh blossoms is common, recreating the look with petite circles of felt gives the same effect, but it’s more sustainable and portable.

A wreath can be constructed around the brim of a hat for a portable expression of life. It can be put on any surface on your porch.
11. Artfully Arrange Some Potted Plants

12. Spell it Out Decorative Holiday Board
This board is a bright, simple decoration that can be changed to bear any message you choose. Jazz up your message board with small bouquets of fresh flowers and small cuts of brightly colored ribbon. This is an easy project to DIY and you can easily make it fit into your personal style.

16. Add a Rustic Flair to Your Porch
The natural wood that this sign is crafted from looks wild, rustic and unpolished. It is perfect for creating a slightly unfinished look. This sign will not make your porch look sloppy or rushed but it will also not make it look too polished and sleek. It is the perfect addition to a shabby chic aesthetic.
17. Radiate Freshness from a Watering Can
No matter the height of your surface or table, it can benefit from a display of delightful blooms in an old watering can. The tarnished surface of this watering can just speak to how reliable it is, how it has stood the test of time. Change up the types of plants you use in this container to keep up with the seasons. Use seasonal blooms, and match the natural color to the rest of your decor.
18. Give Distressed Wood a New Life
Wood signs are commonly seen as porch decorations when springtime comes around and for good reason. They are charming and can bear a message that says anything you want. Use distressed wood in cool shades of blue and white to make an enchanting message board for the springtime.

22. Say Hello to Spring in a Loud Way
While it can be charming to proclaim a greeting on a big board that leans against a wall, a version you can suspend has its own set of benefits.

28. 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.
29. House Number Flower Pot Decoration
Home numbers appear printed on mailboxes and often nailed beside doors.

Numbered pots are an artistic way of identifying your house and making it stand out from the neighbors’.
30. DIY Milk Can Patio Table
Centuries ago, large metal cans with tapered tops and handles were designed to safely transport milk by railway.

You can paint the can and tabletop the same color to create porch furniture with vintage charm.
31. 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.

32. 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.

33. Floral Spring Planter with Bird Nest
Turn a regular planter into a creative miniature environment that embodies the beauty of spring.

34. 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.

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.
37. 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.

38. 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.

The milk can is the perfect place to house branches because it’s deep yet narrow enough to create a bouquet-like arrangement.
39. 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.

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.
43. DIY Grass Shadow Box House Number
A shadowbox is a DIY-able display case that is often used to show off photographs and keepsakes.

Then nail your numbers on top of the grass.
44. 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.
45. Easy Fruit Crate Porch Décor Idea for Spring

49. 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.
50. 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.

This subtle, adorable display is sure to put you in the Easter spirit.
52. 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.

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.
53. 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.
