DIY Spring Wreath Door Basket | Easy and quick to put together! |

I’m starting to believe that spring might actually be here. The snow is melting, the temps are warmer and the days are way longer. I also thought you might like to make something other than a round wreath for your spring front door. I would hate for us to get in a rut! I found a little grapevine basket at Hobby Lobby and decided to see what I could come up with. I’ve listed as many sources as I could find at the end of the post.

DIY Spring Wreath Door Basket Supplies

  • door basket
  • floral foam
  • spanish moss
  • 3 types of faux flowers.

To get started, I stuck a piece of floral foam down into the basket. You don’t have to go all the way to the point…just wedge it into the cone. Next take pieces of spanish moss and cover the floral foam. I literally just poked it down in clumps. To get to the bottom of the point, I used the handle of a wooden spoon.

1.) Now it’s time to add the flowers. The look I was going for was light and airy…so I chose stems of green flower balls that sort of bopped around. That’s what I stuck in first.

2.) Next I added stems of tiny white buds. These were also very flimsy so they swayed around a little too.

3.) I love ranunculus. I found some white stems at Hobby Lobby and since they were half price, I splurged and bought three. I added those next.

4.) At this point it wasn’t quite as full as I had imagined, so I added some more green flower balls. It always helps to hang what you are working on, stand back, and then make adjustments.

When I hung the finished basket on my front door, it was way to high. I looped a long piece of ribbon on the basket handle and just tied it onto my wreath hanger. Here’s a little sneak peek at what the basket looks like on my front door.

  1. Hi! This is so pretty. :) I love your tubs so I went back and read that post. Did I miss where it was that you picked those up? I know it’s been a while but I wasn’t sure if that’s something that can be found at your run-of-the mill big hardware store. Thanks!

  2. Love the cone basket. I have had two and never used them this way. Today is the day! Thanks for the inspiration and direction!
    I miss the little bird also!

  3. I’m behind on your blog and after reading your porch posting I hopped over to see your flower cone. I love the look and how easy and inexpensive it was to make. I will be making one of these for sure. Thank you! My life has been hectic lately so when I saw your blog, I instantly noticed the little bird is gone from your logo! I miss her! Have a great day

  4. Gorgeous! Love your blog! Thanks for such great inspiration!

  5. Christine Buongiorne says:

    Thank you for the lovely idea, I just created my own version today & I love it!

  6. I made a similar arrangement over the weekend for my front door using an old sap bucket filled with freesia and ferns. When I looked out yesterday (my front door is glass), a bird had made a nest in the back of the bucket! I guess I’ll have to leave it for awhile!

    Love the Spring Door Basket! Why limit to only wreaths? I recently found a grapevine cross, added some of my existing Dogwood branches, some of last years palms, (Catholic as I am), added a flowing purple ribbon and my front door is ready for the Spring/Easter Season! Love your posts and blog!

  8. Gorgeous! I need to get something on my front door, as I do believe spring has sprung here in NC.

  9. Ann, That is so beautiful. Thank you for being such an inspiration.

  29. Ann, You never fail to excite me to try something new. Love the beauty of you uncomplicated ideas. Thank you for sharing.

  30. says:

    Very nice door wreath and thank you for the steps and visuals. This is a wonderful and fresh addition to any door. I know what you mean about Spring, we are just getting out of a five day rain cycle here and before that it was snow and ice. Spring is definitely welcome around here.

  31. Looks beautiful Ann………….
    Love your blue door………….it is the same shade of blue as the cedar on my home, and my
    front door is berry red.

    This fresh arrangement looks great on that pretty door. Great job on the arrangement,
    I love the light and airy look, perfect for spring.

    Blessings, Nellie

  32. What a pretty refreshing wreath to see this cloudy Sunday morning. I’m going to try this also,

  33. Mickey Wood says:

    That is so elegant & fresh. This is one I am going to do! Thank you, Ann.

  34. I think the white bow was the perfect touch! Beautiful and springy!! Thanks for sharing!

  35. Such a beautiful Spring wreath, Ann! I’ve already got a door basket, and Spanish moss, just need the flowers, foam and ribbon. I’m definitely giving this one a try ;) Thanks for all you do!
    Kisses to Kelly….
