How to Decorate a Front Door Basket Wreath

It is so simple to decorate with door baskets. You fill them with your favorite flowers, then add a bow.

***For your convenience I have gathered all my favorite spring crafting must-haves HERE.

The baskets I ordered were very reasonably priced for two baskets. I wanted two since my studio has French doors. Having two front doors poses a challenge when decorating. In other words, you have to have two of everything.

Therefore finding a bargain for the baskets was a plus for my front door decorating budget.

The first step was to gather all my supplies and tools to begin decorating my front door baskets.

Add burlap to basket

Add burlap to the basket.

 

Then I cut enough burlap to line the inside of the basket.

Note: I line the baskets to hide the green floral foam and other mechanics of the arrangement.

Adding floral foam to my baskets makes arranging flowers so much easier since they hold the faux flower stems in place. 

Note: I use a bread knife to cut the floral foam.

I pulled out the burlap lining and inserted the cut foam into the bottom of the burlap, and reinserted it into the basket.

I begin the arrangement by adding three of the main flowers to define the design “outline.”

Then I add more of the main flowers to fill in the design. 

Note: If you have different sizes and colors of the main flowers, you could use them to fill in.

Add a few more sunflower stems

Filler Flowers

Once I was happy with my main flowers, I decided to add some height and interest to taller greenery and floral stems.

Ribbon Bow

If you have been following my blog, you know I love to make bows; you can see my favorite bows HERE.

For this basket, I wanted the bow to be on the side and tucked in the basket. Therefore, I would need to make a variation of one of my favorite bows

You will need ribbon, scissors, wire cutters, zip ties, floral wire, or pipe cleaner for this bow.

Fold the ribbon back and forth

Start by weaving loops back and forth until you have 3 loops on each side. Cut a piece of ribbon for the streamer and another piece for the tie in the center.

Find the center

Fold your loops in half to find the center, then add the streamer to the bottom. Gather in the center the loops and the stream and secure with a zip tie.

Using your wire cutters, snip the zip tie. Next, tie the last piece of ribbon around the center of the bow and the pipe cleaner.

Next, you can use the pipe cleaner to attach the bow to the basket. Then style the bow in the way that looks best for your floral basket.

Flower Options

The flower and ribbon options are limitless. However, seasonal flowers make the best “basket wreaths.” 

You can use these wall baskets for boho, farmhouse, or cottage wall decor.

Sunflowers can be used in spring, summer, and fall. 

Spring tulips would make a gorgeous spring wreath basket. It would perfect for a Mother’s Day gift as well.

Patriotic Basket Wreath

To update your door basket wreath is seriously simple. Remove the items you want to replace and store them in a container with a label for the next time you want to use those items.

Tip: Do not remove the floral foam or burlap liner.
