After a cold winter, one of the reasons I look forward to welcoming spring is the front porch. During the warmer seasons, the front porch acts as an extra room! From the moment my kids wake-up, they play outside and run around with the dogs, and I make myself cozy on the porch with a front row seat to the chaos. For me, it’s not enough to have a chair and a view, I want the entire atmosphere to match the season. With spring around the corner, we wanted to help you plan a blossoming and colorful display that will cheer up any visitor that’s coming out of hibernation.

1. Spring Burlap Banner
Banners are a very popular and stylish way to share a message. Hang this “Happy Spring” sign on the back wall of your porch and admire the pastel colors! Your neighbors will love the cheery greeting. Not only that, but banners are very easy to store and use year after year! I don’t see this sign going out of style anytime soon.

2. DIY Easter Banner
Easter is a spring holiday that sometimes sneaks up on us! Mark your calendars now, because this sign is a DIY project you won’t want to forget! If you are someone who celebrates Easter, you know this phrase to be a great reminder and encouragement: “He Has Risen!”

Calling all gardeners! Is this not the most creative wreath? The materials, the colors, I LOVE IT ALL! Maybe you don’t know your way around the garden, but if your friend has a green thumb, consider making this as a gift!

4. Hello, Spring!
Not everyone has a spacious front porch, but you may still want to add a touch of spring to the space you do have! This sign is perfect to go right next to your door and welcome visitors with its sunny colored, rustic greeting.

5. Rainboot planters
One of my favorite ways to decorate is to use materials I already have! Grab a pair of old rain boots, maybe even ones your kids no longer can fit into, and fill the boots with bright, colorful flowers! These will certainly draw attention and bring a smile to any visitor’s face! Try to make the flowers pop against the color of the front door. For example, if you have a red front door, don’t pick red flowers! Picture the entire scene before you make a color choice.

6. Farmhouse Style Porch
Tin or metal pots filled with fresh flowers next to a basket of “fresh” eggs makes for a great farmhouse porch display! If you wanted to add a pop of color, you could get the colorful plastic eggs to go inside the basket instead! Don’t be afraid to play around with the inspiration you find and make it your own creation rather than a copy.

Vintage wagons are a prized commodity in the “mom” world! They are a stylish way to maneuver your kids around and also make for a great centerpiece for a year-round display! The picture below shows a nice spring themed wagon full of planted flowers in a variety of colors. The garden tools beside the wagon add a nice “spring” touch as well. Hint: you can typically find matching garden tools at the dollar section in Target.
