The Spring Door Basket took me all of 10 minutes to make! Seriously, it was so so easy! And it looks so so pretty!
I just love the idea of a basket of spring blooms gracing my front door. I think something pretty like a wreath or basket on a front door gives a big WELCOME SPRING to all who see!
And it’s so important that whatever you put on your door can be seen from the street! Nothing wimpy! Always make is showy and B-I-G!
Ready to make this oh, so easy spring door basket?
MATERIALS FOR MAKING A SPRING DOOR BASKET
If you like to decorate like me, I bet you might have some of the things for this door decoration in your stash! Use what you have!
I found everything for this project in my basement!
I’ve used the blooming branches for years! Do any of you remember this…
These pretty apple blossom branches have been used every spring for almost 10 years!
Here’s a big tip when purchasing faux blooms…
BUY THE BEST YOU CAN AFFORD! AND GET THEM ON SALE!
They will give you years and years of beauty!
You might like to read how I choose and use faux flowers and plants here at StoneGable.
But, I digress. Here is what you will need to make this diy…
- one bucket-type basket with a handle to hang from the door
- faux blooming branches or flowers or both
- pretty ribbon (you can see the ribbon I used HERE)
MAKING THE FLOWER BASKET IN THREE EASY STEPS
I think this basket has a pretty French look so I continued the theme!
Here are a few baskets you might like. Click on the image to see the basket…
TIE A BOW…
The first thing I did was to tie a black and white French inspired ribbon around the basket and tied a bow in the front.
I tied the ribbon quite snuggly on the basket so it did not need to be fastened with anything. But if it did, I would have used a few straight pins to attach it.
I cut the ends of the ribbon into French tails.
ADD BLOOMING BRANCHES
I hung the basket on the back of my front door to add the blooms! It made styling much easier!
I had two very large branches of faux apple blossoms with big branch-y stems. So I rolled the bottom of the branches around my hand until the branches were the perfect height for the spring door basket.
Then I tucked the rolled end of the branches into the basket.
Two branches were the perfect amount for this arrangement. I spread them out from one side of the basket to the other. Easy, right?
ADD EXTRA FLOWERS
If you like the look of the branches you don’t really need to add extra flowers. But I found the pretty pastel ranunculus and couldn’t resist adding them to the front door basket.
I used three sprays of ranunculus in the front of the basket. Again, just so easy!

Now, grab a few flowers, a basket, and some pretty ribbon and make a beautiful spring door basket!
