It’s time to pull out the Spring Porch Decor and I’m sharing some creative Farmhouse Porch Ideas to help you get your outdoor areas ready for the season.
Although it is April, it’s still a little early to risk adding live plants to our porches. Therefore, I’m sharing some creative planter ideas using faux flowers and greenery. In addition, I’ve added some bunnies and bird houses to create vignettes that will carry you from Spring to Summer.

Front Porch Ideas for Spring
For today’s inspiration, I decided to share my front porch ideas for Spring. This is one of my favorites areas to decorate, especially for spring and summer.
When we built our farmhouse, a large front porch was a “must have” design feature on our list of priorities.
I hope you enjoy my Farmhouse Porch Ideas which consists of faux florals and greenery with just a touch of Easter.
Artificial florals have improved to the point that it’s hard to tell the faux from the real. But the good news is, regardless of the weather, these are guaranteed to survive the cooler nights.
Farmhouse Spring Porch Decor
Last fall we updated the front porch by adding tall black shutters which flank the french doors.
After unsuccessfully searching for the perfect sized vintage shutters, we decided to build our own.
As a result, they are the perfect backdrop for wreaths and seasonal decor. In addition, they add such a dramatic impact to the front porch.
You can see Best Idea to Make Door Shutters for all the details.
These cute floral hanging baskets were the inspiration for the Spring porch. Although they looked so cute on the black shutter, I decided they looked a little lost.
Therefore, I added the oval, egg shaped grapevine wreath and hung the metal basket in the center. The wreath is secured to the light fixture with the help of these S hooks.
Next, it’s time to fill the tall DIY faux galvanized planters which are directly under the wreaths.
In order not to compete with the spring florals, a mix of greenery was added to the planters.
In addition, a bunny was nestled into the greenery for a touch of Easter fun.
Also, a grapevine wreath was added to surround the arrangement and secure the greenery in the planter.
Farmhouse Porch Vignettes – Easter Touches
Since Easter is only a few days away, I couldn’t resist adding a few more Easter decor items for a festive feel.
A small moss bunny is resting on Easter eggs inside a twig basket.
In addition, a faux bird, a wooden birdhouse and a faux boxwood plant create a fun vignette next to a rustic metal stool.
On the opposite side of the door another vignette includes a faux boxwood fill urn and a concrete bunny.
Next, in keeping with a true southern front porch, several comfy Kennedy rocking chairs are available for guests to sit a spell.
Therefore, to complete the Farmhouse Porch Ideas, the rockers are draped with cozy throw blankets and Spring pillows.
In addition, another cozy feature is the oversized rug by the front door. The 5′ x 7′ front door rug is a great neutral that will work with any color choice and looks great every season.

Finally, to complete the Farmhouse Spring Porch Decor, there is a handmade address sign above the front doors.

Additionally, by making a few changes to the Easter decor, this porch is ready to move from Spring into Summer.
