The weather is finally starting to warm up in our neck of the world. The gardening bug is starting to tickle. What a better way to refresh our front porches than with a pretty new planter pot! Here are some fun and budget-friendly front porch planter ideas we found on Amazon! From ceramic, resin, wood and even a wagon, let us know which is your favorite in the comments below.
We are so happy to be able to got out and enjoy our gardens a bit. We spend a lot of time in the summer at the cottage so neither Sonja or I keep large gardens at home. However, there’s nothing like some pretty, colourful flowers by the front door to greet you when you come home from work each day.
DIY Front Porch Planter Ideas
Several years ago, we bought some inexpensive faux terra cotta pots, painted and stenciled them. My DIY painted planter held up great for several years, even outdoors over the winters.
Last summer I did give them a makeover (repainted a darker blue) and applied elegant personalized decals using my Cricut Maker machine.
Earlier this year we also made a wooden planter box with cedar planks. You can get the plans to make your own. Mine has stayed at the cottage and I’m looking forward to filling it with some geraniums for the summer.

And how about thinking outside the box for this front porch planter idea: upcycle a wicker laundry basket as we did for this beautiful fall planter last season!
