UPDATE:  Enjoy this project for the front porch of our former home.  We’ve moved and are giving our new-to-us home a complete remodel.  Click HERE to see my new farmhouse style!

My spring door basket is filled to the brim with forsythia and butterflies and makes me happy, happy, happy!

 Whatever I place on my front door is meant to be welcoming to my guests.

I don’t want anything skimpy or small.  I want it to be large and lush!

I used this door basket, in place of a wreath, as part of my Fall and Christmas decor too.

It’s just so easy to work with.  I already had everything in my stash and it only took about 15 minutes to put it all together.

I began by tying a raffia ribbon bow around the basket.

Then I loaded it up with long, glorious forsythia stems.

It needed a little color so I added some silk butterflies that I picked up at the dollar store last year.

And tucked in a few silk fern leaves that I clipped from a large bunch.

A strip of raffia ribbon running up to the top of the door gives the appearance that the basket is hanging from that instead of the suction cup that I actually used.

How about you?  Do you add something to your front door to welcome spring?
