Front Step Junk Decor For The Seasons & Holidays

April 27, 2023

I found this chippy rustic window frame (with two window panes) last week at a local consignment shop.  I am looking for junk decor for my gardens and covered patio.

I have lots of junk, but I have to change it up to keep it interesting!

Believe it or not, years ago my husband let me put one nail in our new steel siding by the front door.  I have managed to hang all of my seasonal and holiday junk on that same nail by adding eye screws and wires to the back of everything that I hung up. (A few more nail holes have been added to different areas of the covered patio over the years, but hey the siding is now 35 years old.)

The window frame with great paint, hinges and rusty hook is hanging on wire as well.

The Hobby Lobby wreath is tied onto a nail with fishing line.

That was easy! And just like that I have my summer front door wall decor.

Since I have been blogging and decorating the patio for years, I am sharing other front door wall decor ideas below:

An Upcycled Barn Quilt hung next to my front door one summer! With careful taping and painting, I changed the paint colors on a garage sale barn quilt.

An old chippy window screen, paint, stencils and a cedar flower box came together in this Farmhouse Window Screen Planter!  The ferns were gorgeous that year.

This was a fun idea! Framed Christmas Greenery by the front door.

I have had a blast thinking up these junky decor ideas! I hope you enjoy them.
