  • Welcome Mat
Make a fun first impression by personalizing a doormat to welcome guests into your home. Grab a plain woven doormat from the nearest home improvement store. Use stencils to paint whatever design or expression you’d like.

  • House Numbers
Make a rustic wooden display of your home’s address numbers with some wood boards and stain. Just make sure the house numbers are large enough to see from the street. This is especially important for emergency responders to easily identify your home.

  • Hanging Plants
If you have a smaller porch or not much green space, try adding a few hanging baskets. These are easy and low maintenance. To cut down on costs, look for hanging baskets at farmers’ markets instead of greenhouses – they tend to be a bit cheaper if they’re coming directly from farms.

  • Porch Chairs
Now that the weather is warmer, it’s garage sale season! That means you can likely find a beautiful pair of porch chairs (bonus points if they are old-fashioned rockers). Clean them up by sanding them down, then give ‘em a fresh coat of spray paint.

  • Welcome Signs
Create your very own welcome sign with a little bit of chalkboard paint and a wood trivet. Drill a hole through the trivet and hang it on your front door with a bit of craft twine.

  • Flowers
Try something different than a typical flower wreath! Hang a lightweight decorative pot or flower bucket with a bit of thick ribbon. This bucket-wreath from Etsy is upwards of $100, but you can certainly make your own!
