Fall Front Door Basket: Wildflowers & Billy Buttons

Easy to make front door basket with gold wildflowers, billy buttons, and trailing greenery. The perfect touch to your fall front door!

In the spring, when I shared a door basket with cherry blossoms, I told you that the basket would be hanging around for fall and Christmas. I am definitely not tired of it, and reinventing it for fall seemed like the logical thing to do. I had pictured cotton bolls and mums, but ended up with wildflowers and billy buttons! I used the greenery that was already in the basket, so adding the fall elements took no time at all.

To begin, I removed the blueberries and cherry blossoms I had used in the spring, but left everything else in the basket. As you can see in the image above, there is eucalyptus and trailing greenery. To see the assembly up to this point, click {HERE.}

Next, I inserted two bunches of gold wildflowers. The trick with the wildflowers is to fan them out and bend the branches, until it all looks full and even. The last step was adding four stems of gold billy buttons. I placed a stem on each side of the basket, and the remaining two stems went in the middle.

There are so many things to love about a project like this:

  • It took no time at all. Not counting the time spent shopping for the fall elements, it took about 10 minutes.
  • It was super budget-friendly. The only things new that were purchased were the wildflowers and the billy buttons…and they were on sale!
  • I was able to reuse what I already had. I had already invested in the basket and greenery, it just made sense to repurpose it for the next season.
  • It is colorful and adds great curb appeal. The gold pops right off my navy blue door and it looks great from the street.

I’ll be back next week to show you the rest of our fall front porch. I am using touches of gold, copper, and navy blue, so if you aren’t in the mood for fall yet, this might do the trick!

  1. Very pretty! Love the golden yellow color. The link said the Billy Buttons were on sale for $6 each and you said you used 4 so that’s $24. The wildflower Bush was also $6 x 2 = $12. Is that right? Doesn’t seem budget friendly to me at all. Am I missing something here? Other than that it is lovely to look at but fairly pricey to make.

      Hi Nanci…well I guess it’s a matter of perspective. I didn’t have to buy the basket or greenery because I had that from the spring. I purchased the gold elements and was able to create a completely different look instead of starting from scratch, which was less expensive for sure. I hope this helps!

  2. Such a clever way to make a tasteful fall decor! I just love how it’s hanging from the door, just a beautiful piece.

  5. Th e baskets are lovely. You know I lost my entire house and home. My dog, cat and rabbit. Mom’s china. Baby pictures.
    So while I am lost in a sea of unfamiliar and I truly am sad my belongings I can make some new favorites. I am off to buy cleaning clothes and a paint sprayer.

    Just lovely! I had a basket once that I hung on our side door but a bird used it as a nesting site! When it flew into the house, I had to move it. Haven’t been brave enough to put it out again.

    This is such a cute door basket!! Love the colors. And I have been trying to find out the name of the little round flower – billy buttons!! Thank you for ending my search.

  8. Very pretty. Great to reuse and repurpose things we have. You have the best ideas. You are also inspiring me to welcome fall. I’m ready for a new season.
