Spring Front Porch

Spring Front Porch

March is well underway, and that has me eager to decorate the outside of my home for Spring.  Today, I am going to show you my front porch adorned for the upcoming season.

This year, on my front door, I decided to do something unique. Instead of making a swag that hung overhead, I decided to make a corner swag. Tomorrow, I will show you how easy it is to make your own corner swag.

Instead of a traditional wreath, I hung a vintage looking mail box and embellished it with a birds nest, flowers, and ribbons.

 

Admiring all of the beautiful porch topiaries in those seasonal home decor catalogs and not wanting to pay their big price tag, I decided to make my own for a fraction of the cost. I had some inexpensive ivy topiaries and simply hot glued Spring flowers to the ivy. Completing the designer look, I simply added bows that tied back to the swag and mail box. I placed the topiaries in my antique urns and placed Spanish moss around the base.

This bunny has graced my porch for the past few years. I simply gave him an updated look with a new bow.

 

 

 

 

 

Tomorrow, I will show you how to make the corner swag. I promise it is super easy.

Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope that you have a wonderful day!!!

  1. Shannon, your porch is Spring perfect and so inviting. The swag is stunning and I will be looking forward to the how-to’s tomorrow. The mail box for the door is a creative idea and I love how it looks with the swag! Happy Monday!

  2. So beautiful Shannon!…Love the topiaries and that gorgeous corner swag!…How so very creative!

  3. Beautiful, springy welcome to your home! I love that swag!

  4. Just lovely; I also have a vintage looking mailbox that I’d like to hang on my door but am unsure how to do so. Can you please let me know what hardware was used. Thank you so much!

    • Hi Cindy! Thank you for your sweet comment. My mailbox has a little hole at the top. I used a Command Strip to hang it. The hole slipped right on the Command Strip hook. I hope this helps.

  5. Luv the bunny!

  6. Love love love the corner swag Shannon! And the beribboned bunny and topiaries, mailbox and nest! I can’t wait to take my shamrock down next week and change my entry after seeing your beautiful creativity!

  8. Good Morning!
    What a precious and pretty Easter entrance to your lovely home!
    Preparing and decorating for Easter is one of my most joyful seasonal opportunities. Everything is so light and airy and optimistically anticipating the moments of rebirth for us all!
    Thank you for brightening my morning,

  9. Just beautiful! Want to come style my front door?

  10. Extremely pretty—somehow, I don’t think shaking snow off your pretty designs would be much fun. I’ve had to rescue my spring wreath from blowing off the door, twice now.
    Grins and happy Spring at your house anyway, Sandi from Chicagoland

    • Thank you, Sandi! Hopefully, Spring will head your way soon! It has been unseasonably warm here this year which gives me Spring Fever. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you are enjoying your week!

  11. You are so creative and I think a corner swag is so unique. I pulled my spring wreath out of storage a few weeks ago and it’s still sitting on a work bench. Shame on me I know! You’ve inspired me to get busy and hopefully I can find a cute bunny like yours also. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, have a great week.

  12. Your spring porch is beautiful. I’m interested to see how you made the corner swag, so now I’ll hop over to the post and read all about it. You continue to inspire me! 🙂

  13. A beautiful spring welcome!
