Save some money and have some fun by making these easy and super cute DIY Easter porch decor ideas for your front doors!  Also check out simple ways to add outdoor Easter decorations for the Easter season.

You all know I love decorating for the different seasons and holidays.  Easter is one of my very favorites!  What’s not to love about cute and easy Easter front porch decorating ideas that you can use throughout the spring season?!  However, I don’t like to spend a big chunk of my home budget on decorations for Easter front porch decorating ideas every year.

I’m guessing that you won’t mind some budget-friendly tips and inexpensive ways to help you get your outdoor decorations ready with some Easter front porch decor, right?!

Coming out of the winter season, even simple Easter decor in an outdoor space is quite the transformation!  I think that is one of the reasons I enjoy the Easter holiday season so much.  It is a great feeling to pull into my driveway and see the festive decorations cheerfully welcoming me home!

Even though I don’t consider myself super crafty, I pulled out the hot glue gun last week and hit up my local dollar tree to make some Easter crafts.  Actually, I am taking them to hang in my classroom this year for a splash of color and holiday cheer!  However, I tried them out on my front door, too, and they look so cute.  Then, I shopped my own decor stash and pulled out some trusty Easter decor favorites to give my front porch a fresh look.

So, let’s get started!  It’s time to use some outdoor Easter decor ideas to transform your front porch too!

How to decorate for Easter outside?

​The first thing I do to decorate my front porch for Easter is to take inventory of the decor I already have.  This is also the best way to decorate your front porch for Easter on a budget!  Over the years, I’ve added to my decor collection and have some variety of options to choose from!

Here are a few favorite things I pull out to use in my Easter front porch decorating ideas each year:

I started with Easter baskets (similar found HERE) on my front doors.  Over on this post, I shared a quick tutorial of how I made these flower baskets to hang on my doors rather than a traditional floral wreath.

Next, I just swept off and cleaned up my layered door mats.  They are still in good shape and do not need to be replaced quite yet.  I love the layered look for more pattern and interest.  You can get my rugs HERE and HERE (similar)!

Then, we added THIS set of 3 concrete pots from Amazon.  We have a similar set by our pool that we got last spring and we love them.  They look so high end but were a great price for the set.  It was hard to choose between the white, concrete, or black.  However, we ended up choosing the black because it has a nice contrast against the white porch floor, rocking chairs, and house.

A trip to a local nursery was very successful because they helped us choose some plants that will survive well on our porch where the irrigation doesn’t reach them.  (And also where I forget to water them very often!).  All of these plants are in the succulent and cacti families which makes them perfect for our Florida climate.  I do love that the Crown of Thorns will bloom a pretty white flower too!

However, don’t be fooled!  Some of my flowers and plants are faux!  THIS faux topiary and THESE faux flowers are staple items for my outdoor decorations!  The faux flowers are super inexpensive and come in a variety of colors so you can mix up your decor and add some “fresh” spring flowers cheaply.  Plus, they will last you for the entire spring season and you can get them back out next year too!

Next, I got my outdoor bunny pillows (similar HERE) from storage.  I’ve used these for several years now and I just love the black and white because it goes so perfectly with the exterior of our home and my personal style!  However, outdoor throw pillows are a great way to add some bright colors for a new look to your porch too.  If you enjoy bright colors, spring is a great time to bring those colors out!  The front porch is a perfect place to have fun with bright colors without interfering with the aesthetic of your interior.

​Lastly, I added some concrete bunnies that I’ve had for a few years.  Even though there are a lot of cute options out there, I still love mine and I definitely don’t need to add even more concrete to the attic (my husband is grateful!  Haha!)  If you are looking for the best way to add an easy touch of Easter decorating outdoors, I highly recommend some cute, heavy Easter bunny statues.  You’ll be able to use them for many, many years to come, making them the perfect addition to your Easter decor collection!

I think THESE and THESE are perfect!

How to decorate a small porch on a budget?

​You probably already caught on that my Easter front porch decorating ideas are super budget-friendly because I hardly purchased anything!  Other than investing in new pots and purchasing a few fresh plants, I didn’t spend a dime, actually!  The set of concrete pots will be used here for years to come and that will make future porch decorating even more budget-friendly!

So, the first thing I recommend doing is to see what you already have that you can use outdoors to decorate your porch.  If you have a smaller front porch, like I do, there isn’t room for a lot of different decorations.  That is totally fine!!!  It can feel crisp, cheerful, and uncluttered.  Plus, you don’t have to spend a lot to make a focal point!

Secondly, wreaths can be pretty expensive!  However, there are a lot of easy ideas to make your own DIY Easter wreath.  I made two different wreaths entirely from items found at my local dollar tree combined with faux greenery that I already had.

The third front door decor option I made was basically free since I already had the ribbon!  I took palm branches from our yard and tied them together with twine.  Then, I used the hot glue gun to secure them.  Lastly, I tied a pretty blue ribbon leaving long tails.  It is perfect for Palm Sunday!

How to Make a Colorful Egg Wreath for Easter Door Decorations

If you are part of my Robyn’s French Nest community, you know I really love neutral colors for my home.  However, when it comes to my classroom, I love bringing in all of the fun and bright colors of the spring season.  I wanted to get a cute wreath for the wooden playhouse in my classroom.  However, they were proving to cost more than I wanted to spend!  When I saw the wire wreath form and colorful eggs at my Dollar Tree, I decided to just make my own!  You could also choose softer colored eggs and make a pastel wreath instead.

Materials Needed:

First, I used the hot glue gun to cover the wire wreath form with faux leaves.  I didn’t worry too much about making this part “perfect”, as it will be covered by the eggs.  However, I just didn’t want wire peeking through between the curves of the plastic eggs.

Secondly, I used the hot glue gun to start attaching the woven Easter egg decorations around the wire wreath form. I chose to put them right next to each other in a tight pattern.  However, you could design this part however you wanted for your own Easter door decorations.

Thirdly, I used the hot glue gun to secure some faux moss around the wire wreath form.  I didn’t cover the whole thing, but just added some here and there for a natural element.

Lastly, I added a small Welcome sign, similar to THIS.  It is such a cute and colorful decoration for my spring and Easter classroom!

​Also at the dollar tree, I picked up a bunny outline wire wreath form.  I haven’t made anything with it yet, but I may still add some spring blooms or colorful Easter eggs to make another DIY wreath.  I also love THIS grapevine bunny wreath form option too!  It would definitely make a little more sturdy little bunny wreath!

Over on THIS post, you can find tutorials for 3 more DIY Easter door decorations that I’ve made either this year or in past years to give our front porch a new look!

How to decorate an outside front porch?

No matter the season or holiday, there are a few elements that I look for when I am styling my front porch decor.  This, of course, all depends on the size and style of your space, but I think of it in 3 basic areas.  There are plenty of ways to decorate a porch.  However, no matter the season, I typically stick with these easy elements for porch decorations.

  1. Decorate the front door.
  2. Add simple seating.
  3. Incorporate key accessories.

For spring and Easter, accessories like a cute wooden sign directing guests to an Easter egg hunt or Happy Easter burlap banners hung along a railing would be perfect for Easter Sunday.  You could also add a splash of color with a colorful Easter egg garland tied to a railing and even Easter egg topiaries from inside brought out to the porch for an Easter celebration.

Another easy and fun DIY idea is to string large plastic eggs and hang on a pretty tree to create an Easter tree in your front yard!  Then, you can also tuck large plastic Easter eggs into brightly colored flower arrangements in window boxes or planters.

​My favorite accessories are cute bunny decor and I leave my concrete rabbits out for most of the spring season.  It is a creative way, yet subtle, to decorate for the holiday season in a way that I can be kinda lazy about and just leave for the whole season!  Haha!

How to decorate a porch for spring?

​There are so many easy ways to decorate a porch for spring.  My favorite way is to use Easter front porch decorating ideas that can stay out for the entire spring season!  You can use pretty accessories to decorate your front porch that are not Easter-specific.  However, they still give the feeling of Easter decor.  Then, if you want, add one or two easy accents that you can simply remove after Easter.

For example, by my side door, I will probably put away the Easter bunny concrete figure when Easter is over.  At the same time, THIS wreath definitely shouts “spring is here” to enjoy for the remainder of the season!

​Some of the best ideas to decorate a porch for spring are:
