Summer Daisies Hanging Door Basket

| | |

The sight of a big basket filled to the brim with daisies announces that summer has arrived at long last!

So as I put together a stunning arrangement for my summer front door, I envisioned myself in a long, flowing, gauzy dress skipping through a daisy filled field in my bare feet, filling my basket with freshly plucked flowers.

{Yes, I am a child of the ’70’s.  Tiny Tim and his field of tulips had nothing on me.}

A door basket filled with daisies for summer. A door basket is so versatile. It's easy to simply change what is displayed during the different seasons and for the different holidays.

I wanted the pretty summer decoration for my front door to be cheery and colorful, yet simple to put together.

 Summer is all about casual and relaxed living so nothing too complicated or fussy would do.

A front door with windows and a basket full of daisies.

 Door baskets are the best time saver ever!  They are sooo easy to change and still look like you put a lot of time and effort into.

My summer door basket consists of the same daisy bunch that I used in my Summer Kitchen Island Vignette last summer.  I stuffed some crumpled up newspaper in the bottom of the basket to raise the flowers up, popped the daisy bunch into the basket and gave them a little fluff.

The basket is wrapped with blue striped burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  To help conceal the hook holding the basket, I simply added a length of the same ribbon to give the appearance that the basket is hanging from the ribbon.

Simple door decoration for summer.

 A clip-on blue daisy flower from the Dollar Tree is just the right accent.

It is literally just clipped onto the knot that I tied.

  If you don’t have a basket for your door, I highly recommend that you get one!

As it turns out, this door basket that I purchased several months ago has turned out to be one the most versatile items to decorate with that I have.

    I love your basket filled with daisies! I have looked and looked for a basket for my door but can’t find one.

    1. I’m so glad that you like it, Penny. I know what you mean about door baskets being hard to find. I scooped this one up as soon as I saw it even though it was a bit pricey. Turns out that it was a good use of $$$ for me. Good luck on your search!
