Front Door Decor~Do Over

Have you ever finished a project 
and then stumbled across something better!  
I made my Spring wreaths 
and shared them with you a few weeks ago.  
Then, I spied these baskets at Nell Hill's 
the weekend that we were there 
and was dying to use them on my front door!  
Can you believe that they were only $10.75 apiece?  
They are a little over 17 inches tall 
and about 11 inches wide.  
I had some Forsythia (faux) 
and I wedged some floral foam 
in the basket to poke the branches into. 
I just layered all of my flowers 
from the wreath into the basket.  
I arranged some of them 
so that they were spilling over the edge.  
When I finished I thought it needed something 
so I made a little Welcome sign for it.  
These wooden discs are really thin 
so you can punch a hole with a hole puncher.  
I painted them black 
and wrote on them with a liquid chalk marker.  
I just tied them on with some string.  
It was cloudy all weekend 
so I thought that the pictures wouldn't turn out 
but they are OK.  
They are so Springy!  
You can tell that Spring is here because 
my allergies are acting up!  
But I love being outside!  
We cleaned out the WHOLE garage 
this weekend and I sold a lot of stuff on Craigslist!  
I had a lot of furniture 
that I needed to get rid of.  
It feels so good to purge 
and make money at the same time!
I can't quite start planting yet.  
But at least there is some Spring color 
on the front door!

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves

Love your baskets and I have an old one kind of like yours. I need to get it out and fill it. I need to purge so badly. I would do Craig's List, but we can't have anyone come to our house and some things are just too big to meet someone in another location with. May have to just take stuff to a consignment shop.

I love it, and I think I just might copy you. I'm bored with plain old wreaths. It looks beautiful!

I love your baskets. It's nice to just do something different and break out of the routine. Not to mention that you got a great deal on them and who doesn't love a bargain!

Gorgeous doors, photos, and baskets. Your addition of the "welcome" plaque was a stroke of genius. Have a wonderful weekend.
