Front Porch Planter Ideas for Spring
Welcome spring into your home with a gorgeous whitewashed porch planter!
Let’s take a look at a front porch planter idea for spring. I want to show you how easy it was to get a beautiful new look for my spring plants.
I started with a 12-inch terracotta pot. It was just a basic pot so I wanted to whitewash it and make it look a little better.
I started with a little bit of water in a dish,
and then added a small amount of white paint. You can use any white craft paint that you have.
Then I stirred it up to combine the paint in the water. You want to have a really runny consistency.
Next, I grabbed a rag, dipped it into the whitewash and started rubbing it on the pot. I wanted it to look like it's weathered like it's been outside for a while. I rubbed the rag back and forth quite a bit to give it a distressed look until it was all covered.
I used the same process on the lip of the pot as well as on the inside ring.
Once the paint was dry, it was time to turn it into a planter. I grabbed a small plastic disposable pot and slipped it into the center of the large one.
I added some stone to the bottom of the large pot so that the smaller one was higher.
I used the same stones to fill up that plastic pot as well. To top it off, I added a little bit of gravel so that I had a nice flat surface.
To complete the space between the middle pot and the outer wall I filled it with soil.
For right now I am going to add faux spring flowers to it but once spring arrives I’ll replace them with real ones.
Once the outside was all covered with flowers I add a glass vase to the center. Make sure it is nice and flat on the gravel.
Then, I added a battery-powered candle to the middle that gives off a beautiful glow.
The candle was the finishing touch and this planter is going to look so great in the spring. I hope this inspired you and gave you a front porch planter idea for spring.
