New door decor completely inspired ( some could say stolen) from Joy at Joys of Home. She has the best decorating ideas and is one of my big DIY inspirations. Although silk flowers are not a huge part of my decor, how else can you bring color to a front door that is constantly in use? Real flowers here would last all of an hour or two before having their delicate little blossoms scattered over the porch.
Joy has the perfect thrifty solution.
My front door went from red to green two years ago (note the red showing through where the dogs scratch to get in, I touch up door paint every month or so) and I have been wanting a pop of red here. I followed Joy's lead . Three bunches of poppies and a foam block from Dollar Tree, a Good Will basket sprayed white, a red frame from Michaels dollar bin and some daisies from my craft stash and voila!
I stuck the block of foam in the basket and arranged the flowers. I downloaded a butterfly print from Abbie at the Vintage Moth. Love her generous spirit! Cut the print to size and popped it in the frame. I didn't have floral wire immediately at hand so I grabbed some paper clips and wired the frame to the basket as well as creating a hanging loop at the back. Then onto the hook already attached to the door. Aside from the trip to DT this all took less than 20 minutes.
Check out the basket of hydrangeas on Joy's header. As soon as I find a similar basket that is so going to be my next project. Really Joy, I'm not stalking you...much. She is such a wealth of ideas when you are stuck on a decorating project and have a small budget as well. Visit her if you haven't already. She is awesome!
Have a mellow Monday, P.
