Porch Planter Ideas – When spring comes around, it’s time to think about what kinds of flowers and planters you want on your front porch. Flowers on the front porch make guests feel welcome and provide a much needed pop of color to your home. Many of these ideas feature vintage or repurposed containers and are very easy to put together. All you need is a little paint and a big imagination. Some of these planters, like the laundry hamper, only take a little bit of creative thought. Think of items from around the house that you haven’t seen as planters in the past and give them a try.
Many of these porch arrangements use a variety of sizes, colors, and heights to make them stand out. Placing the same flower at different heights makes a unified effect, and putting different flowers in gives a charming country look. One particular trend is using vintage furniture drawers and making them into planters. You can either pull the drawer partway out of the chest and use the whole thing as a planter, or take the drawers out and use them alone or to construct a multi-level planter. With a little work and a lot of inspiration, make your porch planters shine.
