A Spring Door Decoration is our Pinterest Challenge this time and we thank Cindy of County Road 407 for bringing us all together for this challenge. If you are stopping by from Katie of Let’s Add Sprinkles I hope you enjoy my creation! Didn’t Katie have such a pretty door hanger? Love her sweet bunny! Well, gang, let’s get creating!!!
Here is what I took away from Jill’s inspiring front door decor…
- an everyday rolled-up garden hose cleaned and dried
- a fun striped pair of gardening gloves
- faux flowers in bright colors
- a cheerful ombre bow to tie it all together
Supplies needed to make this French-Inspired Door Decoration
- a wire basket to use as a base ~ this is like the one I found last fall at Hobby Lobby.
- yellow parrot tulips and white daisies (or any spring florals to match your decor)
- sheet and loose sphagnum moss
- floral foam brick
- pieces of felt (scratch protection)
- a faux bird or two
- grosgrain ribbon
- jute twine
- hot glue gun and gluesticks
- a pretty spring glove

*Fun ombre ribbon craft idea!
- It would be pretty easy to make-your-own ombre ribbon with lightly dipping the ribbon held horizontally into a bleach/water solution (cotton-based ribbon works best!) — 1/3 way up. Let the ribbon rest on a paper towel until the color changes. Rinse with clear water and let dry on fresh paper towels.
- Once dry, dip a second time in the bleach/water solution but up to 2/3 of the way up. Let sit on paper towels again until the desired color is reached. Rinse in clear water a second time and let dry on fresh paper towels again. You should see two “colors” of bleached ribbon now ~ three colors total including the original color. 😊
- Enjoy your ombre ribbon!
Love how realistic these tulips are! They remind me of the
beautiful tulips I saw in planters when I was over in England
during the spring of 2005.
Tip: When you place your tulips into the floral foam, add the stems straight up and down to make those faux tulips look more realistic. Oddly enough, they tend to flop just like real tulips!
|Taken while I was still noodling how and what to add…
Cut off a four-foot length of jute twine and weave and wind into a nest shape. Add this to your basket and place your birdie into its nest.
