Perk Up Your Small Entryway with these Simple Front Porch Decor Ideas

Freshen up your small front door entryway for Spring with these simple front porch decor ideas. They will increase your home’s curb appeal and bring joy every time you walk in the door!

I confess.

I had my Christmas wreath on my front door until just yesterday. I called it “Winter Decor” because it was just greenery and pine cones. But, still…it was time to get with the program.

In the spirit of using things I already have on hand at home, I set out to freshen things up. It didn’t take long at all and the results are so cheery and welcoming!

Here’s the sad state of the entryway before. A little bedraggled, wouldn’t you say??

And here are the 3 quick and simple steps I used to perk it up:

Empty out the space and clean it.

My poor entryway space was just crying for a little attention – and some good old-fashioned cleaning!

On a nice, sunny evening, I shook the dried out leaves off the welcome mats and swept the whole space down well.

Gone were the cobwebs and piles of itty bitty dirt in the corners.

Then, I wiped down the door and threshold and sprayed the rugs to give them a cleaning.

Plant a few colorful plants in a pot beside the door

On our last trip to the grocery store, I quickly grabbed a few pansy plants and a sunny yellow mini daffodil.

Despite completely forgetting about them for about 4 days, they perked right up once I planted (and watered!) them in the planter with the small evergreen tree.

Hang a Spring wreath on the door

I didn’t have a Spring wreath in my decor closet, so I went in search of something that I could make using what I already had here at home.

I picked up a grapevine wreath that I saved from when I bought it 2 Christmases ago for its faux boxwood greenery. (You can see the boxwood wreaths I made from it here.)

Then, I simply pushed the stems of some faux greenery and flowers I had sitting in my decor stash (that I’d previously purchased from Micheal’s).

It was the simplest and quickest wreath I’ve ever made. The denseness of the grapevine wreath makes the stems secure very tightly – no gluing or wiring necessary!

Since our door is metal, we discovered a heavy duty magnetic hook is the greatest way to hang our wreaths. I couldn’t find one online exactly like ours, but here is a similar option. (affiliate link)

Enjoy the fresh new look!

And that’s it, folks! Just a few simple steps can completely transform your front door entryway space.
