Spring is on the way and even though it may be a tad early to change up all your décor, I’ve been starting to slowly add spring touches here and there around our home the past few days. One of the first things on my list was to create something springy to hang on our front door and to change things up I decided to make a hanging basket instead of a wreath.
Today I am excited to share with you how I created my own easy spring floral door basket to hang on my front door using faux flowers and greenery.
To make your own, you really don’t need to spend a lot of money. In fact, you can raid your own stack of faux flowers and greens to create something new with what you already have! I did a little of both. I pulled out some things I had and added a few new things for a fresh look.

How to Make your Hanging Door Basket:
Step 1: Start by sizing your floral sponge for your basket. Depending on the size and shape, you may need to shave /trim off the corners so it fits nicely in the bottom of your basket.
Step 2: Hang your basket to work. I found this to be very helpful as I worked because I could step back and look at it to decide on placement, height, etc. you don’t have to do this but I found it was more helpful than working on my table for getting a sense of how it was all coming together.
Step 3: Start with your greenery. The first thing I placed was my trailing greenery in the front. I found that getting this into place first meant I didn’t have to work around everything else at the end. Once that was in place, I added some other greenery trying to keep the placement even throughout.
Step 4: Add your Base Flowers. evenly place them throughout using the wire in the stems to bend them in different directions. Carefully weave them through the greenery for a nice blend.
Step 5: Add in Accent Flowers and/or berries. I didn’t have them so I used pastel daisies as my accent with the tulips.
Step 6: Add a ribbon around the basket or on the hanger.
Make it your Own
Don’t feel like you have to follow my items exactly. Use what you have or what you love. I used a mix of things I had and a few spring bushes of greens to create my basket. The fun part is that it can easily be changed up for the seasons. Have fun with it and do what you love!
