Some of you may be asking what exactly is a Pinterest Challenge. Well, let me tell you. Each month, we are given an inspiration photo and we then create our own version of it. It’s such a creative and fun time sharing our masterpieces with friends!

Springtime Door Basket – Supplies

The supplies for this particular door decor are minimal. Therefore, you may have some of these supplies in your home decor stash already.

  • Basket
  • Moss or floral block
  • Large zip lock baggie (if using moss)
  • Faux flowers
  • Real tulips
  • Floral water tubes
  • Window suction cups

Creating the Basket

For my interpretation I used faux and real flowers. Honestly, I have so many faux flowers that it seemed a waste not to use those. The tulips I cut from my own gardens. I did need to purchase the heather.

Most times, when I create a floral arrangement I use those green floral blocks. Because my basket was see through I didn’t want to use the green floral blocks. Therefore, I used some natural moss and put it inside a large zip lock bag. Using the clear zip lock bag provented the moss from sticking out through the holes of the basket.

First, I used the faux pathos and heather on either side of the basket. The nice thing about faux is that you can bend the branches to look the way you want. I then added the faux peonies and white hydrangeas.

Lastly, I ran out to my yard and cut some of my tulips. Since the squirrels and rabbits have loved eating my tulips this spring, I was happy to cut some down for my enjoyment! I placed each one in a water tube and added them to my basket.

You can easily make this kind of basket arrangement with branches and whatever florals you have growing in your yard and use it on the inside of your door or on the outside.
