Let’s get started!
3 Easy Steps to Create Beautiful, Inexpensive Front Door Decor
Step One: Choose a Basket
I love these baskets from Flower and Home Marketplace. They are under $22 and perfect to use year round. I really make an effort to invest in decor that I can use in a variety of ways and for different seasons too.
By simply switching the greenery or flowers, you could quickly transform these and refresh your front door decor. For example, I am going to tuck a few little flags in with my florals to create a festive look for the summer holidays!
Step Two: Add Greenery
Whether using fresh or faux greenery and florals, you can stretch the budget by creating a base of greenery before adding the florals. For example, in this arrangement, I used 5 stems of the eucalyptus. Otherwise, I would have had to have 3 bunches of peonies. Also, the eucalyptus is something I can use all year long, so it is a budget-friendly way to build a decor collection!
If you’re looking to refresh your faux greens, I highly recommend this faux eucalyptus. I use it indoors as well as part of my front door flower baskets. It has such a realistic look!
Start by gently fluffing each stem. Next, carefully separate each wire so that the eucalyptus has a full and natural look. Lastly, line the wall basket with the eucalyptus stems.
Tip: Criss-cross the stems to create a grid down in the basket. This will help the greenery and florals to easily stay in place!
Step Three: Add Flowers
Depending on the size of your basket, add plenty of flowers to get a full and overflowing look. For these baskets, I used two bunches of faux peonies. These peonies are so full and fill the basket beautifully for an easy front door decor refresh!
As with the eucalyptus, start by gently fluffing the peony bushes. Carefully pull each stem apart until they have a full look. I like to pull a few stems forward so that they will spill over the front edge of the basket too. Some florals are easier to work with than others, so I really make an effort to invest in quality florals. These peonies are easy to work with and last a long time too.
After that, gently place the peony bushes in the basket, layered with the eucalyptus stems behind and the peonies at the front of the basket. You’ll want to tweak the florals and the greenery a bit once everything is placed in the basket.
Hang your flower baskets and enjoy!
Now you’re ready to hang your baskets and enjoy your front door decor refresh! These peony-filled baskets can keep your front doors looking welcoming for all of spring and summer!
I’ve used this wreath hanger for years and it has held up great, even in our Florida weather. It also comes in this pretty brass color, which would make lovely front door decor too! In addition, you can’t beat the price!
Peonies are such a beautiful floral and whether you’re using fresh or faux, there are so many fun ways to style them in and around your home! I hope today’s post gives you a little idea or sparks some creativity as you freshen up your front door decor for the season!
It is a perfect opportunity to welcome guests to your home. Most importantly, it welcomes your family home each day with simple and intentional beauty!
