DIY Front Porch Decor Ideas

If you are looking for a fun craft that can also spruce up your house’s curb appeal, look no further! Decorating your front porch is an easy way to spruce up your house’s look, as well as a fun activity for the whole family. Here, we’ve curated a list of fun DIY front porch ideas that are easy for the entire family to get in on, plus some printable activities provided by Angi.

DIY House Number Ideas

One great DIY to improve your home’s curb appeal is by displaying your house numbers in a unique way. In most places, you are required to display your house numbers so that they are visible from the road—but no one said they can’t look fabulous! This is a great project for the whole family.

Here are a few DIY front porch house number ideas.


Make a Mosaic

House numbers made from colorful pieces of glass are a unique feature you are unlikely to see on any other house in the neighborhood. You can even make a house number mosaic out of shells or other recycled materials if that better suits your home’s aesthetic.

Revamp Wood Slices

Drawing your house numbers on slices of wood and arranging them on your front porch is a unique look that will give your home a rustic feel.

Nestle Numbers in a Wreath

You can integrate your address numbers into your front door wreath. Handmake your wreath by adding flowers and ribbons. Make sure the numbers are removable. This way, you can change out your wreath to match each season and just put the numbers in the new wreath.

Use DIY House Number Stencils

Use DIY house number stencils to paint your house numbers onto an object. This could be a wooden sign, a piece of metal, or even glass jugs. This is a fun craft that the whole family can participate in.

If you want the numbers to look more ornate, you can use decorative stencils to paint around the numbers!

Other Front Porch DIYs

Here are a few more front porch DIYs that are sure to spruce up your curb appeal.

DIY Doormat

Welcome mats are a cute way to say “hello” to guests as they enter your space. Doormats are easy to DIY with unique stencils, such as this one above. All you will need is a plain doormat and some paint to create this front porch decor piece.

Paint Your Front Door

Your front door color can say a lot about your family. For example, red doors are very inviting. This is an easy way to add some color to your front porch.

Plant Flowers

Planting pretty flowers and succulents into unique pots for your front porch is a great way to bring life to your curb appeal. If you want to make this project a bit more crafty, try painting the pots to match your home’s aesthetic.
