Front Door Decor

The front of my house has a few steps that lead up to a small landing area.  To spruce up my very mini porch, I got this hanging flower planter for a few dollars:


The flowers were pretty, but the planter wasn’t anything special.


So for just a few buckaroos, I decided to spice up the flowers by replanting them in a much prettier hanging wire basket instead:


I snagged the hanging basket for just $2 at the Christmas Tree Shops and in about 5 minutes I had a much cuter hanging flower pot!


It was a fast and cheap fix, but now my front door looks much prettier!  And the plastic basket these flowers came in won't go to waste because I can always give it a new life as an upside down veggie planter next year.

Oh and if you’re wondering what flowers I have planted next to my front door, I have colorful Celosia and white Stock flowers growing.  I love the fresh, light look of the Stock and it’s extra special to me because the bridesmaids at my wedding had Stock in their bouquets.  I also love that the planter these flowers are in was a total steal for just $2 at a garage sale!


All in all, my entire front door decor comes in, flowers and all, at about $10!  I may not have the biggest front porch in town, but I love my thrifty front door decor!  How do you spruce up your front door and porch area?

What your porch gives up in size, it makes up in quality. Very nice! La
