I love switching out my porch decor for the different seasons. Keeping my front door entrance welcoming and happy is something important to me and my family as it sets the tone for any person entering our home. For some of us, that means a huge wrap around porch, and for others a door in an apartment building. I have found that by making just a few small changes here and there, porches can become inviting and friendly to all who enter.
Hi, it’s Jess from The Sewing Rabbit, here with some ideas to help get your porch ready for spring!
I absolutely love baskets. You can find them everywhere in my home, from holding books to pillows to dog toys, I love the casual look and feel they give a room – while still maintaining order. (Anyone can throw toys in a basket after all – ha!) Baskets on the front porch have that same country home feel, and look great when filled with flowers, candles, acorns, or more!

This is my favorite wreath of. all. time. The colors are so vibrant, and absolutely POP next to the natural grapevine wreath. Making one couldn’t be easier. Just grab your favorite palette of fake flowers, snip half of the wire stem off, and wrap the remaining half inside of the grapevine wreath. Keep doing this until you are satisfied with the fullness of your flowers!
Dimension is one of the best ways to make your living space pleasing to the eye. One way to easily create dimension by your front door is with a plant stand. The white metal wild bloom collapsible plant stands are perfect for your front porch! They are sturdy enough to not blow over in the wind and have a clean minimalistic appearance.
Nothing says hospitality like a pineapple! Perhaps knows best as a housewarming gift idea, this Summer Sol wooden carved pineapple makes an adorable welcome sign as people enter our home. I paired the wooden pineapple with a Mix the Media wooden sign (found at your local Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Store), which I painted white and drew our house number on.
These are just some ideas to get your front porch Spring and Summer ready. For more Spring inspiration, be sure to check out the Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores Spring Inspiration Pinterest Board. Just remember, whether you have a huge front entrance to work with, or a door in a hallway – nothing makes a person feel more welcome than a smile when you open the door.
