Ok now for my adorable Easter door basket with DIY faux carrots…

I love using door baskets because you can easily swap out some faux florals and things for each season. In the past I’ve done a door basket with some of my dried hydrangeas (click to see it here) and I’ve also done a patriotic door basket (linking it here).

The options are endless!

How to create an adorable Easter door basket

You will need:

  • door basket
  • faux greenery
  • styrofoam cones
  • fabric
  • ribbon
  • a bunny
  • hot glue gun

Start by making the faux carrots.

You can certainly buy faux carrots but I decided to make my own. I took each styrofoam cone and rolled it up in some fabric. I did not measure out the fabric I just rolled the each cone until it was covered and then cut.

As you are rolling the fabric, be sure to fold down the top so that the whole flat part is covered completely. Same thing with the bottom, make sure you are folding up the fabric and tucking it in so that the point is completely covered.

Then I used some hot glue to glue the edges of the fabric to keep it secure.

A cut a little hole in the top of the fabric and punctured the top of the cone so that I could stick some greenery in for the stem.

Then group your carrots together and tie with a ribbon.

These faux carrots are a great filler for a spring basket or dough bowl too!

Now you are ready to fill your door basket.

I filled my basket with my carrots first.  Then I added my bunny.

I liked this one with the cute flower crown but it was a little too wide, so I did have to trim the edges to make him fit. Good thing he’s made of styrofoam 🙂

Then I filled in the spaces with some faux greens. Have you ever heard of the Thrill, Fill, Spill method? I like to use it when I’m making arrangements, whether it be in pots or baskets. You choose one item that will be the thriller, next choose some fillers, and then spillers. I love the way these greens trailed down the basket.

An Easy DIY Winter Wreath

This is an easy DIY winter wreath to transition from holiday to winter decor.

This past weekend, we finally took down all of the Christmas decor.  I was ready for a fresh, clean slate for the new year, including a new wreath for the front door. I was inspired by the Anthropologie pom pom wreath with the fluffy and cozy vibes. If you haven’t seen the popular wreath, here’s a photo below.

While I was at the Dollar Store, I found a few items to re-create the look. Scroll down below to see how I made this easy DIY winter wreath and Anthropologie pom pom wreath dupe.

 

Supplies:

  • Wire wreath form (The one I used was a little challenging with the gaps to glue the fabric on so I think a foam or straw wreath form would work better).
  • Fuzzy mop heads
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon

Directions:

1.) Start by gathering all your supplies and heating up your glue gun.

2.) Separate each individual mop head, depending on the size of your wreath form and the mop heads, will determine how many you use. I used 8.

3.) One your glue gun is hot, line some glue on the wreath frame where you plan to attach the mop head then stick the mop head directly on and hold for a few seconds. Now since there were open spaces, some of the glue did drip through the gaps so make sure you have some newspaper or something down on your table.

4.) Continue to glue the mop heads around the wreath form.

5.) Once finished, allow to dry then tie a large bow with some ribbon.

6.) Glue the bow onto the wreath.

Super easy, took 10 minutes and cost me about $10!

Winter on a tray

Decorating with trays is one of my favorite ways to switch up the decor in my home. Sometimes you might also hear it referred to it as a vignette. Today I’m teaming up with 15 other bloggers to bring you some inspiration for creating your own winter wonderland on a tray. And a big thank you to Katherine from Katherine’s Corner for putting this together and inviting me!

If you’re coming over from Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate, welcome! I hope that you will stick around and come on over and follow me on Instagram!

Now how to create a winter tray

1.) Start by choosing your theme or look that you are going for.

My theme for decorating for the holidays this year was winter wonderland, with whites, greens, golds and snowglobes. (Speaking of snowglobes, I made the cutest snowglobe ornaments for the tree, you can see the DIY here). So I knew that I wanted my tray decor have the same neutral wintery feel. I especially love this theme as it is something that transitions nicely after the holidays and you can keep out during winter.

2.) Shop your home

I always start by going through my decor and shopping my home first and then selecting which items I want to use.

3.) Choose a focal piece.

Last year, I made the cutest little winter scene in a glass cannister and I loved the way it came out so I decided to do that again as my focal piece.

I filled my cannister with some sugar to make it look like snow. Then I added my little ceramic house and a bottle brush tree.

4.) Group items of different heights

Since the cannister was short,  I used this reindeer statue to add some height.

4.) Add some greens.

I always add a touch of greens, whether real or faux to soften it up a bit. I love this faux tree I picked up at our local garden center. I added a sprig of faux holly and pinecones too!

And then I added the beaded garland for some texture and I think it just adds some fun.

Super simple and it’s something I can leave out all winter long!
