Front Door Decor — Spring Wreath Alternatives

I love a gorgeous wreath on a front door just as much as the next person, but wreaths on a front door are kind of expected. Lately I’ve really enjoyed seeing what other things people use to decorate their front doors for spring, and there are some real out-of-the-box thinkers out there! If you’ve been looking for inspiration for a wreath alternative for your front door, you’re sure to find something here…


1.  Fill an inexpensive straw tote with flowers.

    These are all so cute, but need covered doorways. My front door has no roof, portico, shelter or overhang for protection, so whatever I put out there has to be able to handle the weather. Maybe collect and share some ideas that can deal?

    They are all great ideas! I think Korrie’s boots are just the cutest and I love Kelly’s umbrella as well. I used a flat basket filled with dried basil this year and love the way it turned out too. This is some great pinning material for next year!

    All so beautiful, but I tell ‘ya, i’ve been thinking of two since I first saw them… the umbrella from Eclectically Vintage, and the boots from Red Hen Home. I’m thinking about combining the ideas…. filling boots with water like the umbrella and putting fresh flowers in.

    Hmmmm…I’ve been trying to come up with something besides a wreath myself….no good ideas yet. I really like the straw tote with flowers idea!

    Lovely ideas! That watering can is gorgeous. I’d love to find one that looks old and rusty like that. I think the rusted can with the bright and colorful flowers is what makes that arrangement look so beautiful. Thanks for the ideas!

    Hi, You are very creative with your ideas. I love the door decorations you have there. The spring mixed media collage on canvas is absolutely great for me. It is very appealing and refreshing. How do you do such stunning wreath on a front door? Very creative. Wow :-)
