Memorial Day is next weekend (and July 4th is just around the corner).....perfect excuse to get my patriotic decorations out today. However, I didn't have anything good for the front door. After searching Pinterest last night and seeing lots of lovely wreaths, I decided I wanted something different.
I love the baskets and buckets of flowers I see on doors, so I headed to Hobby Lobby this morning in search of the perfect container. It was one of those "I'll know it when I see it" shopping trips!
Hobby Lobby had plenty to choose from, but I finally settled on a very simple woven basket. I also picked up some faux greenery (my front porch gets too much direct sun to use the real thing), wired ribbon, and a package of flags.
The bow.....hmmm.....I can make a terrific bow about every third attempt. Anyone else have this problem? Since its been awhile, I used this great tutorial from Tidbits & Twine. She has great photos for each step if you need help or just a refresher like me!
The flags were stuck into the styrofoam amongst the greenery and raffia. Then, I added my bow to the front using a little florist wire wrapped around the basket weave.
Simple, but I love how it turned out and how it looks on the front door!
God bless America!
