Spring is in the air! I cannot wait to begin planting and decorating for warmer weather. It’s definitely been a long winter so far and with spring just around the corner, it’s time to begin thinking about different ways to decorate your porch for the warmer seasons. I’ve found a great collection of spring porch décor ideas that you can easily implement into your outdoor decorating.
These projects all use things that you probably have on hand, which essentially makes them free. That’s the best type of project, right? If you’re looking to add to your flowers and greenery this spring, you can begin now. Even though it’s technically still winter, now is definitely the time to get those seeds growing. Check out this great way to repurpose plastic bottles into seed starter pots. This will help you to start your growing now and you can transfer those blooms to the porch when the weather breaks.
These porch décor ideas are fabulous and are filled with repurposing. I love to repurpose as opposed to throwing things out, which is what makes this collection so great. You get to use up those things that you didn’t think you would ever have use for again…and you get to create a beautiful display on the porch at the same time. Your neighbors are going to be so jealous!
Your porch is often the first thing that people notice about your home. Adding to it – décor wise – can instantly improve your curb appeal and even make your home more valuable. With these easy to do projects, you are sure to be able to dress up that porch and give your entire home a gorgeous new look.

So, without further ado, let’s get started making your porch the most beautiful in your neighborhood. We’ll create a beautiful place for you to welcome guests or just relax on those warm spring days with a great glass of sweet iced tea.
1. Wooden Crate Table
An old wooden crate painted white – or any other pastel spring color – is the perfect way to bring attention to your beautiful porch. Use that crate as a table between your seats and you can even place a potted plant inside for additional splashes of color. I love how something so simple like adding an old crate table can make such an amazing statement.

2. Hand Painted Welcome Sign
Welcome guests to your decked out spring porch by simply adding a hand painted sign. I found this little jewel on Etsy, but you can make it in about an hour. And, if you have the wood and mason jar, it won’t cost you anything. The mason jar is secured with a metal clamp and you could totally paint this any color or just whitewash it for a great spring look. Add some blooms to your jar and you’ve got a beautiful welcoming planter.

3. Rain Boot Planters
Nothing says spring quite like rain and rain boots. That said, you can incorporate those colorful rain boots into your spring porch décor. Just turn them into planters. Just use old rain boots – they can even be worn and have holes in the bottom – and fill them with potting soil. Then add your favorite plants and you’ve got the perfect spring planter to display on your porch.
4. Hanging Rain Gutter Planters
Old rain gutters are perfect for turning into spring planters to hang on your porch. These are so very easy to make and if you’ve recently replaced your gutters, you have everything you need. Just paint them a lovely spring color, or any color that matches your porch décor, and add your potting soil and flowers. I love this idea for hanging above porch railings and giving your entire porch a splash of color.
5. Decorative Bird Cages
Old bird cages are so gorgeous and when you paint them white – or yellow even – they make the perfect springtime decoration for your porch. Just add flowers and even a tiny bird decoration to instantly brighten up your porch. Birds are the epitome of spring and when you incorporate bright or pastel colors, you get a great display for the porch. You can pick up old bird cages pretty cheap at most thrift stores, too.
6. Milk Can Table
An old milk can – that you can get at most flea markets for just a few dollars – can be transformed into a beautiful table for your porch, and when you paint it a bright springtime color, it makes the perfect spring display. Just place the can between your chairs and you’ve got a colorful place to relax and sip tea or watch the world go by. Add a vase of flowers for even more color.
7. Living Number Box
This project actually takes care of two problems. It helps you to brighten up your porch for spring and gives you a beautiful display for your house number. You add fake grass for the background and against a white box, it’s a beautiful contrast that will instantly bring the eye from the street to your porch. This is so easy to make and you can have it hanging within an hour or two.
8. DIY Twig Ladder
This DIY twig ladder is the perfect backdrop for your trailing flowers. Imagine having brightly colored flowers vining up a makeshift trellis right by the front door. You’ll need to gather some twigs and then choose your flowers. If you want to get fairly strong sticks, you could also hang tiny buckets of flowers from the ladder.
9. Handmade Chandelier Planter
If your porch roof is tall enough, you can hang this beautiful chandelier that is filled with flowers right from the porch. This is a beautiful way to welcome spring and you can choose any type of flower that you want to display – provided it’s small enough to live inside the tiny pots. Check your local thrift stores for old chandeliers, paint, and then plant. It’s a simple project and a beautiful way to bring some color to the porch.

10. Colorful Pillows
If you’re lucky enough to have a bench or patio couch on your porch, you can instantly brighten up that space with a few colorful pillows. It’s so easy to make a few throw pillows, and you can choose springtime designs to really make your porch feel warm and welcoming. Even if you don’t have a couch or bench, a chair would work. Just add pillows to the chair and you will notice an instant difference.
11. Stacked Pot Planter
Sometimes you have everything you need to decorate your porch for spring, but you just to determine how you are going to use those items in your décor. Instead of sitting your potted plants on the porch, why not create this stacked planter and give your décor a bit of uniqueness? This is so easy to make and when you paint it bright colors, it’s just screams springtime.
12. Drawer Planters
Take those old dresser drawers, the ones that you are planning to throw out, and give them new life. At the same time, you’ll be creating a gorgeous display for your front porch that will house lovely flowers this spring. These are so easy to make – you just need to add a coat of paint. They’re also a really creative way to upcycle old drawers and bring a bit of brightness to the porch.
13. DIY Vertical Wall Planter
This vertical wall planter will instantly add color to your front porch and brighten it up for spring. I love the idea of having different colored flowers in the buckets – you can use peonies which come in so many different colors and this entire project will cost you less than $75 and that’s if you have to purchase everything. If you have some of the supplies you can make it for practically nothing.
14. Bird Nest Decor
Nothing says spring like new birds, right? You can add bird nests to your front porch to give it a great springtime look. You don’t have to go out looking for nests – please don’t remove bird nests from your trees – instead, you’ll make your own and it’s a really easy project. Then just add eggs, fake ones of course, and a little birdy decoration and your porch is all about springtime.
15. Wagon Board Planter
You’ll notice that many of these projects incorporate plants – which is the very epitome of spring. This wagon board planter is great, and it’s so colorful, which makes it perfect for sprucing up your porch for the new season. Match the paint to the color of your flower to make it look more uniform. You can even add little decorations, whatever you want, to make it even more bright and colorful.
16. Easter Tulips
A simple basket of white eggs (not real ones of course) and some white tulips will give your porch such a lovely spring look. Easter is in spring after all, so incorporating some Easter décor into your porch decorating works well. You can even add a little wooden bunny if you want, or go with colorful tulips if you prefer them to all white. Tulips are such a springtime flower, so no matter what color you use, your porch will instantly brighten.
17. Springtime Wreath
Sometimes all you have to do to make your porch warm and inviting is to add a nice wreath. Since you’re decorating for spring, a springtime wreath with bright colors will instantly brighten up your porch. Don’t have a wreath? You can forgo the traditional wreath and just use a brightly colored umbrella stuffed with tulips – or whatever springtime flower you prefer. If you’re looking for a way to brighten up the porch but you’re not a fan of wreaths, this umbrella display is the perfect alternative.
18. New Door Paint
If you really want to brighten up your front porch and get it ready for spring, painting your door is a quick and really inexpensive option. Just choose a pastel paint color that will somewhat match your existing exterior and paint away. I love colored doors. They honestly bring so much attention to the entryway and painting the door is something that will take you so little time, and you can change the color for every season if you want.
19. Lavender Tub
Something as simple as adding a galvanized tub filled with lavender can make such a different in your porch décor. Lavender is a gorgeous spring color and it offers so many benefits, aside from the wonderful smell. This is a great idea if you don’t have a lot of room. You could also use smaller tubs – which you can get at the Dollar Store for a dollar or so each – and line them up on your porch railing to add color.
20. Brightly Colored Bench
You can make this beautiful bench, which instantly adds springtime charm to your porch or deck. The bench is really easy to make and when you paint it bright yellow or another springtime color, it will brighten up your porch. Plus, you have additional seating when you add a bench, so you have room to sit outdoors and enjoy the springtime weather with a nice glass of tea or lemonade. If you already have a bench, just paint it a nice bright color and you’re all set.
21. Easter Lanterns
Lanterns are a great way to add some springtime charm to your porch, and these are decorated for Easter, so you really get that warm weather appeal. Adding veggies – not real ones of course – bunnies and even colored eggs will brighten up your porch, especially when you add colorful flowers. I love this project. It’s so easy and really does give you loads of springtime color.
22. Colorful Garden Bench
I love the idea of incorporating a garden bench into porch décor. If you don’t have a bench, you can make one easily or pick one up at most thrift stores. Paint it white and distress it a bit for a rustic look. Then use the bench to display loads of flowers and other springtime decorations. A birdhouse is a good choice and loads of yellow or white flowers to really give it a spring like appeal.
23. Spring Garden Hose Wreath
Spring is the time when you start planting and really growing your lawn and garden. That makes this garden hose wreath perfect for displaying on the front door this spring. It adds the splash of color that you want to bring your porch into the new season and it’s really easy to make. Colorful ribbon, flowers, and some really colorful garden gloves complete the look and instantly make your front door look like it’s ready for spring planting.
24. More Tulips
Tulips are the unofficial flower of spring and anywhere you put them, you’re going to get a wonderful springtime feeling. That said, you can simply add some tulips to a bucket, planter or anything else you have on hand and instantly brighten up your outdoor spaces. I love the look of tulips in a galvanized bucket just sitting on the front porch but you could add them to any planter and place them all around your porch for a great splash of color.
25. Colorful Welcome Mat
Nothing says welcome to your porch quite like a welcome mat, and this colorful mat is perfect for adding a springtime touch to your porch décor. This geometric mat is really easy to make and you can incorporate so many colors into it. It’s the perfect setting for your front stoop and even if you don’t have room to add other decorations, this mat will instantly dress up your porch for the new season.
