Repurposed Bud Vases

I’m a big fan of coming up with creative ways to reuse a light bulb, and these little bud vases made from old bulbs are a perfect example why. Group them together on a patio table or hang them from the porch rails. (If you’d rather not DIY these vases, check out what amazing artists are creating with light bulbs on Etsy.)

Vintage Porch Lighting

I’m a bit obsessed with vintage lanterns and string lights lately, and with good reason. My front porch gets the most use during the first warm nights of Spring when it’s cool enough to ward off mosquitos and humidity but warm enough to sit outside with friends. Flickering lanterns and antique string lights dangling from a porch rail invite good conversation.

Shabby Chic Wind Chime

Chirping birds and the soft clinking of wind chimes are the melodies of Spring. This shabby chic DIY wind chime made of vintage keys in pastel hues is a soothing front porch addition.

Bubbling Water Fountain

April rain and melting snow carries a steady flow of water along creeks and streams during the Spring. Bring the sounds of a bubbling brook to the front door with a DIY recirculating fountain. For an ethereal touch, add submersible LED tape lights to your water feature.
