Baskets Full of Daffodils

I found these baskets on Decor Steals over a year ago. 
Last year, I used them on our front door with three types of artificial flowers: tulips, summer flowers, and fall flowers.  They will all be making a return visit during the appropriate seasons this year.

Daffodils are currently making their first appearance in the baskets.



When I initially placed them in the baskets, they needed something else.  That led me to try making the bows out of plaid wired ribbon that I had on hand. 


Now they make me happy!



A few tips for using these baskets:

I tie them to the door in two places so they are not  constantly tipping to one side or the other.

If the flower stems are too short, I fill the bottom of the baskets with bubble wrap.

I attached the bows with a twist tie.

Heartfully,

    1. Thanks, Cindy. We have had everything from hot to cold weather here over the last month. Happily, it was nice and sunny when I was hanging the baskets up.

  8. I love your door basket! It makes me think of Spring. I know what you mean by those baskets wanting to tilt. I've had that problem before when using one on my door. Love the cute ribbon you added. It's the perfect touch.
