Last Updated on May 8, 2019 by

Winter is over… so let’s talk about front door decorations for spring! 🙂

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 front door decor. 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…

    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.

    Thanks for reminding us that different is good. All these are too pretty! I especially like the straw tote, and I think I can easily duplicate t hat.

    One question: Are people really willing to replace fresh flowers on their front door?

    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!
