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?
