10 Silhouette Ideas to Add Curb Appeal to Your Home

Today's officially first day of spring!  And in honor of the season all about flowers, butterflies, and chirping birds, we're taking our lesson outside.  Around here spring means sprucing up the outside of our home with color and fresh new decor.  The Silhouette can come in really handy for outdoor decor.
Note: You'll notice many of these projects include vinyl - be sure to use the indoor/outdoor vinyl for the best results!

I used my Silhouette Portrait recently to bring together a new spring front door wreath. The 'Welcome' I added on the burlap backdrop was cut on vinyl.  It gives my front door that extra special feel that I was looking for.

You can find the full tutorial on my DIY spring front door wreath on our sister site, Two It Yourself.  Just be sure you come back to check out these nine other ideas to add curb appeal to your home using your Silhouette machine, as well.

Make a vinyl street number decal for your front door like 11 Magnolia Lane did in a vinyl color that coordinates with the home's exterior. It's a fresh, clean look that makes the house number easy to find and read.

Monogram what would otherwise by a plain and boring door mat. Annie B Wills shares a great tutorial on her blog using relatively new design from the Silhouette Online Store.

Decorate your front porch or entryway with a DIY burlap flag that's created using a stencil cut on the Silhouette. Click here for our step by step tutorial on making this Pottery Barn knockoff flag with an oversized stencil. 

Instead of a welcome mat, add a little whimsy to your front door with a vinyl welcome front door decal.  Custom Vinyl By Design sells this design in her Etsy Shop - along with hundreds of other awesome vinyl decals.

Make a tiered flower potter using terracotta pots that have been painted and filled with bright blooms.  Add a monogram or house number - using a Silhouette cut stencil - to the largest pot.  Be sure it's big enough that it can be seen from the road.

Silhouette America Blog shared a beautiful spring wreath with paper flowers and mini bunting that would be perfect right into summer.  Cut the 3D flowers and bunting on the Silhouette.  Hang the wreath between the storm door and front door to protect it from the elements.  

Give your mailbox a makeover by adding a custom vinyl with your street number, name, or monogram. Check out the Etsy Shop, Back40Life, for this two sided swirly monogram mailbox address vinyl decal - along with many other custom decals, wood signs and monograms.

Add personalized pillows to a front porch bench or rocking chairs.  Make a freezer paper stencil cut on a Silhouette and use paint to add a monogram or other design to a set of burlap pillows.  These pillows are available in my etsy shop, Cuteness Cubed.

Make a DIY welcome sign like the very talented sisters over at Stanty 2 Chic.  These girls are a-maz-ing and guide you through ever stop of the building process from the wood cut list to making the Silhouette stencil for the actual sign!

Pick your favorite or combine a few of these outdoor projects and get your Silhouette cranked up. Before you know it your home will have major curb appeal.
