2) Mailbox Makeover
Paint it or get a new one. There are kits you can buy online. Pinterest has a lot of creative ideas.

Go green, get rid of any plants that have decided to brown. Nothing is more welcoming than flowers. Fill pots and hanging planters with colorful blooms. Try giving your potted plants height and depth. You can make them taller, layer or even stack them and maybe place them on a chair or bench. For a smaller entryway use a vertical planter.
Clean your yard. Prune your bushes, trim any low-hanging tree branches, and cut down any overgrown hedges. You’ll first need to do a primary cleanup of your property. That would entail removing dead leaves, fallen branches, trash, and picking up any of your dog’s “business.” Grab a garbage bag, a pair of gloves, and start trash picking. It’s also important to remove any clutter on the outside of your home. This could include toys in the yard, your garden gnome collection, and broken patio furniture. Create a minimalistic, yet inviting, space outside your home.
