Happy Spring Decor Ideas
for Your Porch

It's time for spring decor ideas! Dust your porches off and brighten them with cheerful pillows and a decorated front door.



For our spring decorations we have some spring pillow toppers to show you, our garden hose wreath from last spring is all refreshed and we painted our plastic pots purple and filled then with pansies.

Everything is DIY, easy and cheap.


Spring decor on our front porch is cheerful, colorful and old-fashioned!


When I saw the photo of our spring decor ideas, it reminded me of times gone by.

Pansy pillow toppers, garden hose wreath (updated from last year) and pansies in purple pots...we hope these DIY projects make your heart feel light, too.



Tutorial for Our Yellow Pansy Pillow Topper

The four spring pillows make for a nostalgic setting on our porch swing


For our spring decor, we did four pillow toppers using very inexpensive fabric ($3 per yard) and acrylic paints we already had. The pillow toppers are simply wrapped around the pillows and pinned on the back.


Short Tutorial on the Pillow Toppers

Cut the fabric to be at least a couple inches wider and longer than your pillow. Start by sketching some pansies with a permanent marker on the fabric for the pillow topper.

Paint the edges of the flower petals with a light yellow acrylic paint.

Fill in the middle of the petals with a deeper shade of yellow.

Add some white to the center of the petals. Plus add in a few white highlights to the petals, if you wish.

Outline a few leaves with the permanent marker and use a couple shades of green to fill in the leaves.

Voila, a lovely yellow pansy for our pillow topper that we simply pinned on.

We also made blue and purple pansy pillows.

Oh yes, and a pink daisy for the porch swing.


Paint Your Pots Purple

We spray painted four pots with purple paint


Those plain plastic pots from the garden store aren't so pretty to look at. And who wants to buy new pots? We just spray painted ours with purple paint and what an amazing and bright difference.

Those black plastic pots from the garden store aren't so pretty to look at. And who wants to buy new pots? We just spray painted ours with purple paint and what an amazing and bright difference.

The pansies practically pop in their newly painted pots.

We get compliments on these and if they only knew how easy it was to do!


Bird Bath Turned Spring Decoration

Cobalt blue bird bath decorated for spring


While we wished the birds loved our cobalt bird bath for splashing around, they just don't. We think they are afraid of seeing their own reflection in the water. But all is not lost. We use the bird bath in our decor.


We turned our cobalt blue bird bath into a spring decoration.


We glued the 'grass' to a dollar store plate and then added sparkly rocks on top of that. The eggs each have a few pennies in side the so they don't blow away. Our grandchildren enjoy looking at this Easter decoration.


Spring Decor Ideas: Paint Scrap Wood with Simple Flowers

Simple spring flowers painted on scraps of wood.


Dave had some scrap 4 x 4 wood that he cut into 3 pieces of varying heights. I painted a very simple flower onto each.

Just simple but pretty cute on our side table.


Garden Hose Wreath for the 2nd Year

Our garden hose wreath is from last year but with new polka dot ribbon and new spring flowers


We had a garden hose wreath on our door last year, too. But to give it a new twist, we changed out the ribbon and the flowers. So easy. The garden gloves are in the pic above, but we decided to just keep it simple as you will see below.

Fresh, fun and cute. Do you like the idea of a garden hose wreath for a spring decorating idea? Honestly, it's so easy and affordable. Very little imagination is required!

And it looks cheerful on our front door. See the herb planter to the right of it? A gift from our friends Liz and Doug, we decorate it for just about every season! Makes for fun spring decor.


Another version of a garden hose wreath shared by one of our readers


One of our kind readers shared this picture of her friend's garden hose wreath. I love how it is loosely wrapped and the soft colors of the flowers.
