Do you have wood scraps or old planks hanging around the garage? With a few supplies, you can transform them into these gorgeous planter boxes. Add a coat of stain and a simple DIY stencil, and you have a box that looks like it’s been around for decades. The large size is ideal for the front porch — load it up with small potted plants to create the look of a mini English garden.
Add levels and depth to your front steps with these lovely tiered flower planters. The materials are inexpensive and easy to find — all you need is two flower pots in different sizes. Since the top pot rests on the soil of the bottom pot, there’s no construction required. With two levels of greenery, this piece creates a lush look. Add a solar-powered stake light to illuminate your walkway, and choose cascading fronds for maximum visual effect.
Vintage wooden crates offer a rich blend of texture and color, but they can be hard to find. With this DIY option, you can create the same look at home. Each box is made from cedar boards (or any planks you have on hand) and basic hardware, so it’s easy to build even if this is your first construction project. Personalize your crate with stain or distress the surface with a hammer for an antique twist.
Create an inviting feeling in your front entry with this plant hanger, which doubles as a welcome sign. It looks like a professional piece, but all it requires is a few 2 x 4 pieces of wood and some basic construction skills. A sturdy hook holds your favorite potted plant off of the ground, enabling the leaves or blooms to cascade to full effect. Leave the wood unfinished for a rustic look, or give it a coat of white paint if you’re after a cottage aesthetic. A hand-painted or vinyl-cut “welcome” completes the project.
Topiaries add a formal look to your front entry, but the maintenance can be a turn-off. That’s where this artificial option comes in. With its lush greenery and natural bark bed, it brings a lifelike look with zero maintenance. For a true touch of grandeur, pot your faux topiaries in a large urn — sand provides stability and allows efficient drainage after a rainstorm.
Are you looking for a quick project to upgrade your front entry? This two-pot planter is a great option. The construction process is fast and easy — just join two clay pots by their bottoms and add a coat of paint. The resulting shape stands out among traditional planters; plus, since it features simple lines, you can use it with any type of home style. Personalize your project with a few freeform or stenciled designs, or leave it plain for a modern vibe.
Display a large, leafy plant in style using this burlap planter. If you’re looking for an affordable DIY project, this is the perfect option.

A length of rustic rope tied in an ornate knot adds a nautical finishing touch.

These gorgeous burlap-covered planters look expensive — but peek underneath, and you’ll discover that they’re actually an ingenious way to use things you probably already have around the house. Each planter is made from an old bucket, but you’d never guess it. A loose layer of burlap secured by twine adds an instant upgrade. Use these planters on your front porch for an upscale-farmhouse vibe, and add a bit of moss around the base to conceal the top of the bucket.
It’s a miracle what a can of spray paint can do for your front porch — with a quick layer of paint, you can transform an old, tired-looking planter into a thing of beauty. Do this project with any pot you have hiding in the corner of the garage; spray it with metallic paint for a completely new look. For a rustic twist, add in a bit of moss at the base of your plant. We love it paired with brilliant flowers that set off the metal surface.
