DIY Projects That Will Make Your Porch Stand Out in the Neighborhood
Knotted Seat Cushions
A set of old seating is waiting to be renewed with the season. Start with basic tufted cushions, and give them a bohemian upgrade with fluffy accents that mimic the look of quilt knots. To create these denser, woolier versions, wind merino needlepoint yarn around the handle of a wooden spoon till it's as thick as you'd like, tie it off in the center, and fluff the ends.
Wave Them Down
Welcome guests and reassure them that they're ringing the right bell with a custom mailbox displaying your house number.
Transform small and inexpensive area rugs (these are only $4) into a full-length runner. All you need is a needle and thread.
If you don't have a big porch, situate this tiered herb garden in a sunny spot near the kitchen door for easy snipping. Our planter contains rosemary, sage, parsley, thyme, oregano, basil, and chives.
