Welcome to this month’s Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy of County Road 407. She has decided to challenge us all and make this a fun monthly event we can all look forward to and… Here is our new logo also created by our very talented host, Miss Cindy!!!
We have an exciting number of spring door decor ideas ready for you to copy for your front door. This is mine at the very top!
If you are coming over from Terrie at Decorate and More With Tip or are new to French Ethereal, welcome! I’m so glad you are here. Please enjoy this post, everyone!
As you finish here, be sure to check out the list of participants in this month’s Pinterest Challenge at the bottom of my post. I know you are going to enjoy each and every one of their sweet door hangers!
Let’s jump right in and take a look…
Our challenge this month was to create some kind of fun spring door decor starting by using this photo:
Cindy found this month’s Pinterest Challenge photo over at
Tracy’s Trinkets Treasures. Tracy shares this sweet hanging basket filled with ethereal white hydrangea blooms combined with puffs and vines of greenery. I love this basket’s simplicity and all the different textures!
So pretty and fresh for transitioning from spring into summer!
Although Tracy hasn’t blogged in a while, this photo keeps making the rounds and remains current ~ what’s not to love with a sweet tin basket blooming with blooms?!
Here’s what I started with
As I have been unboxing all the goodies coming out of storage, I realized I didn’t need to go visit any of the local craft stores for any supplies needed for this month’s door decor Pinterest Challenge (although I love going to them!).
Since I was thinking about Tracy’s metal basket, I looked around my craft room and found an old Longaberger basket purse I used back in the day. Perfect! I’d found a basket that could hang from our front door with just a little tweaking…*
Supplies you’ll need and what to do
Once I had gathered my basket, florals and the block of florist foam, this project really did take 5 minutes!*
*(Minus having to attach an opened-up coat hanger hidden under and around the front of the basket, woven through the left and right front corners of the basket and back up behind the handle attachments, then twisted and hung with the basket’s leather loop to the door knocker ~ this was to keep the basket upright.)

That’s all you need ~ easy peasy!
Head outside and hang your casual spring decor basket hanger! With Easter just passed I liked the Easter-basket touch this Longaberger basket gave our front door. You could also add some hanging ribbons if you so like ~ I didn’t have anything that really went with this sweet basket so I kept mine plain.
This door basket also has a bit of a fishing creel look to it, too… Might be fun to add in some fishing lures later during the summer, huh?
Here is my front entryway so you can see how this basket looks…
And this sweet little dog statue I found earlier this spring at Lowe’s fits perfectly out front with everything.
Thanks so much for pinning any of my photos!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will take some time to check out all the lovely door decorations everyone participating this month has created!
Next up is Katie at Let’s Add Sprinkles and she has the cutest watering tin in her door basket ~ I know you’re going to love her post!
