DIY Spring Porch Sign
Make your front porch stand out with a super cute spring porch sign. The best thing – you can make it reversible so it lasts for two seasons OR you can switch it out when you want something new. There are different ways to make them and, of course, hundreds of different designs, so you can make it as personable as you’d like. Whatever you choose will be eye-catching and make your front porch ready for spring.
House Numbers Planters
House number planters are a great way to display your house number and show the neighborhood your favorite flowers. You don’t have to be an expert gardener for this, as it’s pretty easy! You simply get some pots or planters that match your home and paint your house numbers on them (one or two numbers on each). Then fill the pots with your favorite flowers and soil and place them where you think they fit best – on your porch, by your mailbox, etc.

There are also other types of wall hangings that don’t involve paint, too! One easy project is buying block letters, designs, or just boxes and filling them with faux flowers and greenery.
