Fresh Spring Porch Decor

It's March first and I've got to tell you, that brings me a bit of hope that warmer days are ahead. Actually, today it is very warm and spring like and it is 83 degrees warmer than it was last Wednesday! I decided it was definitely time for some spring decorating on my front, covered porch.

I started with making a couple fresh, boho styled, front door "wreaths".

These are very easy to make and only take about ten minutes each to create. A branch, some fake flowers, jute, floral wire, and a few wood beads are all you need.

I shared these faux lavender(?) flowers last week in the post below. They are from the thrift store. Use whatever flowers you like and that fit your style. I like the simplicity of these and the papery flowers. I wired them on one end of a 20" branch from my yard. You could use a dowel, a wood hanger, a piece of galvanized or copper pipe. I used floral wire and three o the faux stems.
I then tied a 5 foot piece of green jute to one end of the branch. On the end with the flowers I kept the tail from the knot long.

I strung six wood beads onto the jute and then tied it to the other end and cut off the excess string after the knot.

I added three more jute strings on the end with the flowers, leaving the tails different lengths.

I looped the top of the jute and hug two of these boho spring "wreaths" on my front doors.

They are fresh and something different from a typical wreath. The pop of purple adds a bit of spring and color to my porch.

In the corner on my old, green, wood wagon I hung the tool belt wall hanging that I shared at Christmas (HERE) on the propped picket fence.

I added a couple old, rusty, garden tools to the tool belt. A grapevine rabbit and a vintage, metal, lilac candy box (both from the thrift store) add a bit more color and texture to my spring front porch decor.

In the other corner of the porch I placed a bentwood, caned chair from the thrift store. This is going to get a repair and update in the future, but until then I liked the wood against the white house.

I grabbed the smaller thrift store gold pan I found a few weeks ago and threw some fake eggs in it. I tied some purple embroidery floss and green jute through the hole in the gold pan to incorporate a bit more color.

I am enjoying the spring like weather and am happy to have a bit of fresh color on my front porch.

  1. I had some fun making some little mini terra cotta pots using white pom poms to look like bunny butts sticking up out of the pot "dirt", aka coffee grinds. They are busy digging up 3 little carrots that I made out of paper clay & painted. Pretty darn cute if I do say so myself.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
