Spring Forsythia Door Basket

Spring Forsythia Door Basket | Make this in just a few minutes. It's a show stopper from the street and totally DIY!Spring and forsythia just go together…sort of like peanut butter and jelly. One of the first signs that spring has arrived, at least around here, are the yellow buds on forsythia bushes. I am lucky to have two very old bushes and I’m waiting patiently for real blooms. In the meantime, I’ve made a spring forsythia door basket to cheer up my sad front door. My door has been bare since Christmas and every time I pull out of my driveway, I just sigh. Well no more of that! 

Spring Forsythia Door Basket | Make this in just a few minutes. It's a show stopper from the street and totally DIY!

What you need:

3 or 4 bunches of forsythia
door basket
1 bunch of lavender (optional)

This is probably one of the easiest and quickest door projects I have ever done. I thought I might have to use wire cutters to trim the forsythia but there was no need. My basket was tall enough so all I had to do was stick in the forsythia bushes. When I had my three bunches in the basket, I wished I had one more. It just wasn’t as full as I would have liked. Because I didn’t want to go out again, I hunted through my stash and found a lavender bunch. I tucked it in and around the forsythia so it peaked out the front. It’s just what I needed to fill things out a bit. 

Note: I got my basket at Joann and it measures 14 in. wide x 14 in. tall. I looked on their website but could not find it. The basket I linked to above measures 10 inches…so if you order it, I’m pretty sure you will only need 3 bunches of forsythia since it’s smaller.

This was the perfect project to lift my spirits and there’s no more sighing at my bare door. It was quick, easy and affordable…three of my very favorite things. Now…an update on my mom.

This is really hard but I want to tell you all what’s going on. (I’m taking a deep breath.) We brought my mom home last week. She had been in a nursing home for 20 days while we figured out what needed to be done. No one wanted her to be there, but the time it gave my dad was necessary. She is now sleeping all the time and has stopped eating. Hospice has been wonderful and helped us with everything. I wish I knew how long we had but that is, of course, in God’s hands. I am spending every day with my parents and I have no words to say how grateful I am that this is possible. I take my computer (and Kelly) with me so I am still able to work. Having something to do has saved me from feeling too sorry for myself. Being with all of you through this has been such a gift. I have never once felt alone because I know that many, if not most, of you have traveled this road before me. You know how I feel so there is no need for me to put it into words. I am blessed and so thankful for your friendship.

Thank you for stopping by…and have the loveliest Sunday ever.

    My thoughts are with you and your family as you walk this road with your Mom. It has been 17 months since my Mother went to her eternal home, and the months my sisters and I cared for her at home were difficult and precious at the same time. May God comfort and give you peace in the coming days.

  2. Ann, I wanted to show you a photo of my own *forsythia basket* I made by following your directions, but I couldn’t find a way to send the picture. Anyway, I want to thank you for such wonderful inspiration!!! First let me say that I am NOT crafty…but this project just spoke to me. We can’t grow forsythia here in California, but my mom back in KY had a forsythia bush in our yard for as long as I can remember. Both she and the bush are no longer there, but doing this little project helped me to reminisce.

  3. Mary K. kAUF says:

    Loved the forsythia basket,just what Ineeded till Spring really gets here in Pennsylvania. Thots and prayers are there with you and your Mother

  4. My mom had a beautiful forsythia bush that bloomed every Spring. She died in 2009 at age 98. Every time I see forsythia I think of her. Where I live in California we don’t have forsythia, so buying the artificial branches will have to suffice. I am planning on making a basket like yours for my front door.

    My heart goes out to you and your family.


  5. Thanks Ann, for the Spring forsythia door basket idea. I love simple projects that look great. I did end up making a heart wreath for the front door inspired by your design. All the materials were on sale, which made it extra sweet.
    Continuing to pray for your mother and your family.

  6. Sorry to hear about your mom…I’ve been where you are and yes, this time with them is well spent. Know that you and they are in out prayers. God Bless

  7. I’m so sorry to hear what you are going through. There are many of us that have walked that road so we know how hard it is. You have the prayers and best wishes of many. There are angels here on earth that care for us in times of great sorrow. May you be blessed in the coming days.

  8. Hi Ann, I am so sorry your mom, you and family are going through this. A mother is a precious gift. Take care.

  9. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Our mothers are very special to us,i don’t have mine but,i am glad i lived close by so i could be with her. I know God will get you thru this and the time you spend will be sweet memories. Have a great day Ann.

  10. Jo Marie Gray says:


    So sorry to read of your mother. Yes, many of us have traveled this road, not easy but comforting to know you’re not alone.

    Take care of yourself and your dad. These are treasured moments…they will last you a lifetime.

    Jo Marie

  11. Sandy Waters says:

    Dear Ann: You are in my prayers. Your posts are always so beautiful and the door basked is especially uplifting during these dark days of winter. God bless you and give you peace and encouragement as you care for your mother and father. My own mother is in poor health herself so I truly understand.
    Sincerely yours,

  12. Sheila @ Making the Most of Every Day says:

    Thank you for sharing from your personal life with us. You are being very brave!

    The forsythia basket is adorable! I take it those are artificial blooms and not real ones? It really does cheer up the front door!

  13. Dear Ann,
    You are right to know you are not alone in this walk. Each is different though, and wish you peace at this very difficult but sacred time. Kathy

  14. God bless you sweet Ann. I pray you have comfort and peace during this trying time.

  15. Aggiequilter says:

    Thank you for sharing such a day-brightening project … and please know that you have many warm thoughts there with YOU, as you and your family go through this difficult time.
    We have been down that road 4 times now, the last being about 2 years ago when my dear father-in-law passed away from cancer. There isn’t a day goes by that I don’t think of all the blessings we had from our 4 loving parents. Take care!

  16. Deborah D says:

    Ann, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God grant you wisdom in the days ahead. May He wrap you in His loving arms of comfort and peace.

  17. I love the touch of lavender! I have that exact basket and some lavender so all I need to is to snatch up some forsythia!

    I will keep you and your parents in my thoughts and prayers. I totally know the helpless feeling. My husband and I are going through rough family times right now as well. His younger sister just had a kidney removed this morning and his oldest brother has stage 4 in his lungs. I have both a sister and a brother on home care for various reasons. I told him we need to stay healthy because no one else is!

    God bless you!!!

    p.s. my valentine’s day pillows look awesome on the sofa!!!

    1. Update…picked up some forsythia at Hobby Lobby on my lunch hour yesterday…can’t wait to get it put together this weekend!

  18. Ann, I’m so sorry about your Mother. It is precious time and I am glad that you are able to focus on that time with her. We will be here for you when you feel like it.

  19. Praying for you and your family. So glad you are able to be with them each day.

  20. Diana @ gardenthymewithdiana.com says:

    Ann, I am thinking of you and prayers are there for your family.

  21. Sweet Ann!

    We lost our Mama just about a year ago. Daddy is in good health to be 87 & gets around really well. He was determined that we (as children) would keep Mama at home, in familiar surroundings. This happened for a few years, then Mama started losing weight, some days would eat, some days not. Out of 3 children, I am the only one that lives in town. I work full-time & would go by and help Daddy get Mama dressed for the day, then off to work. After work, before going home, I would stop by and help him get her ready for bed. Some days he had her fed, others he was struggling with her to eat & I would try. After getting her settled, I would go home and cook their meal for them to have the next day, knowing they were getting proper nutrition. My brother and sister would come as time allowed them to. It got to the point she would only eat soft food, so we resorted to baby food and things I could cook that were soft. After a Dr. visit, he suggested Hospice to start coming in to help. He said toward the end the disease takes different approaches, hers was to stop eating. This was something my Daddy had trouble dealing with, he wanted her to eat, but Hospice said not to push eating. After she stopped eating completely & Hospice had made one visit to the home stating it could be a week or even 3 weeks. 3 days later my Mama passed to her eternal home. We were all with her when she passed & I would not have taken anything for being there. I told my sister, she was with us when we were born & took our first breath and we were able to be with her when she passed & took her last breath. For that I am thankful to God. I will keep you all in my prayers & pray for strength as you journey down this road. God Bless You All!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your story. Bless your heart…

  22. Thinking of you, Ann at this very difficult time…Blessings to you and your family.

  23. Ann,
    I lost my Mom in October and we, too, had Hospice with us. They make something so difficult, not easy, but at least do-able. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

    1. Chris…I had no idea how important Hospice can be in a situation like this. I am so grateful to have their help.

  24. Holding you close in my heart as you go through this.

  25. Praying that the Good Shepherd tenderly leads your family through this difficult journey.

  26. My heart aches for you and your family, Ann, but I am so happy that you are able to spend this time with them. The moments that you share with your Mother at this difficult time will be cherished memories for life. Audrey & I will say a prayer for all of you.

  27. Praying for you. The road to peace is sometimes hard but He will lift you up. Be strong.

  28. Just wanted you to know I am lifting you and your family up in prayer . ((Hugs))

  29. Dear Ann,
    You bring so much beauty into the world. I know this is a difficult time for you and your family,but know also that seeing your mother through this journey is a yet another beautiful gift from you. I only hope that you are also taking some time for yourself during. Thoughts and prayers with you. Love the Forsythia basket. I used to do battle every year pruning a particularly overgrown one. It was kind of therapeutic. Nowadays, i think I’ll stick to the silk variety!

  30. Lorena Swearingen says:

    So sorry to hear about your Mom. Many prayers to you and your family.

  31. Praying for your family Ann.

    Thank you for taking the time to share your beautiful home and blog posts during this difficult season of your life.


  32. Blessings to you and your family. Time passes, and as it does, cherish the memories.

    So enjoy your blog… Wish you peace in the coming days.

  33. Ann, so sorry to hear about your Mom, It sounds like you are doing your very best during such a difficult and emotional time. So many of us are dealing with the same situation these days, it’s nice to know that there are others out there to share the struggle. Thank you for so unselfishly bringing a little joy to all of us with your blog.

  34. So very sorry for the sorrow you are going through.

  35. You and your family are in my prayers. I have walked that road with my parents’ and it’s very difficult.

  36. My thoughts and prayers are with you dear Ann. Have been through this so many times. I am 90 years old and have lost all of my family, mother, father 2 sisters, brother, husband, son and I am still standing. NOT that I want to be but for 90 I am extremely healthy and still able to be very active. Love them while they are here and more so after they have left you.

    1. Oh my goodness Betty…I am filled with admiration. Wishing you good health and peaceful days.

  37. Your basket of forsythia and lavender is beautiful. I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. I do understand as I have walked that journey, too. May God keep you and your family in the palm of His hand.

    You take care.

  38. Just know we are your circle of friends and send you love
    and support at this difficult time. God’s blessing to you all.

  39. Reaching across from my heart to yours with friendship, comfort and prayers …for all of you as you ass through this goodbye time.

  40. Your Basket is so cheery….. too cute. I Will be keeping you in my prayers my the Lord Bless the time that you get to spend with them.

    Be Blessed and Hugs to you.

  41. I forgot to mention that I love the forsythia branches in that basket! I have a basket on my front door and am going out to find some faux branches to fill it up! It screams happy!!

  42. So sorry about your mom. We have endured a long good bye with my mother in law, and now we watch as my father slips away from us. The only way it’s bearable is knowing that this is the circle of life and it’s all in God’s plan. Sending you a virtual hug and saying a prayer that your heart and mind find peace.

  43. Hi Ann,
    I’m also very ready for the arrival of Spring. My “creative juices” are flowing, & I’m planning & starting to gather my Spring decorations. Your forsythia basket is really pretty & I’m going to try to duplicate it.

    I’ve been through what you are experiencing with your mother. You will all be in my prayers,

  44. Shelley @ Calypso in the Country says:

    So pretty! I have a forsythia wreath but I like your basket idea better. So sorry you are going through such a sad and difficult time with your family. Sending prayers.

  45. I was wondering how your mom was doing and your dad as well. They are so fortunate to have you and all the help you have been to them. I know you have cooked, made many trips to check on them and did whatever you could to help them remain independent. I feel what you do for others, in this case your parents, always comes back to you.
    Your parents must be wonderful people to have raised someone like you. You have a giving heart and a caring nature, it comes thru on your blog. You have many reasons to be grateful for your parents, they helped make you the person you are today and how very lucky we are to know you thru your blog. Thinking and saying a prayer for all of you.

  46. Oh Ann, my heart aches for you and your family. I also know talking and telling about what you are going through is the best medicine. It allows all of us that adore you to join in prayers and loving thoughts your way. Even though we’ve never met from the first post I read I felt like we were kindred spirits. I know others feel the same.
    Thank you for sharing your sunny spring front door! Just what we need for the gray February days.
    Crafting always gives me a lift too.

  47. Nancy McIntosh says:

    Prayers to you and your family. Even though you think you are prepared for her passing, it will still be hard. Let the tears flow and allow yourself as much time as you need to grieve.

    Thank you for taking time to share this beautiful forsythia basket. Just the photo brings cheer into our lives during this dreary time of the year. God bless you and your father with peace, strength for each day, and may your mother find rest in the arms of Jesus.

  48. Debbie L. says:


    Know that you and you family are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you for the beautiful forsythia basket! I always look forward to reading your blog.

    Take care.

  49. Ricki Jill Treleaven says:

    Ann, I am so sorry about your mom. I know what you’re going through, and I’m thankful that you can spend time with her since she’s nearby.

    I will remember you and your sweet family in my prayers.

    Take care,

  50. Ann, I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. We lost my mother in law to a stroke 3 years ago and it was such a difficult time. Please know we are thinking of you and your family and sending our hugs and prayers.

  51. Christine Stadler says:

    Oh Ann,
    The tears are streaming downy cheeks A’s I read your words. I’m so sorry for the heaviness your heart feels right now. I am one of your readers who has been there…

    My thoughts are that it is so loving to simply be there for your parents. When my mom began sleeping all the time, near the end, I made certain to focus on doing the things she could hear and feel. Kissing her forehead, squeezing her hand, whispering I love you’s and I’m here A’s you prepare to enter the next phase of your journey etc.

    Hearing is the last sense we have when dying. Make sure you continue to use us, your readers A’s a sounding board of support and empathy. We all care! May God guide your strength and your heart at this difficult time.

    Thank you for all that you do for us…

  52. My heart breaks for you Ann. I have been in your shoes. You will never regret the time and efforts spent now on your Mom and Dad. God bless you, may He give your His perfect peace, a peace that passes all understanding. Take one day at a time.

  53. Your door basket is beautiful and is a symbol of the hope of spring.
    I’m praying for you and your family as your Mom is in the ‘winter’ of her life. God bless you for the way you’ve honored and cared for your parents.

  54. As way too many of us know from our own experiences your family is going through an incredibly sad and difficult time as our parents age. Thoughts are with you and may the Lord bless you and keep you. Good that you now have a cheerful door to welcome you home.

  55. Diane Brown says:

    Hi Ann,

    I really enjoy your posts and just wanted to send you a little note regarding your mother. I know this is a very difficult time, but please know that many, many people are praying for you and your family. May you all find peace in the joy your mother gave you. And may she find peace in God’s arms. Blessings to you all.


  56. Ann, I’ll be thinking of you as you take care of your mom and dad. We all have to go through these phases of life and they are so hard sometimes. Sending hugs.


  57. Debbie Kaplun says:

    Ann, my heart aches for all that you, your Mom and Dad are going through. Yes, you are blessed to be with her as you are. I believe that she finds great comfort in your presence. My prayers are with you and trust me, your Mom will be with you always in spirit.

    Thank-you so much for brightening my days with your wonderful blog, especially when you are going through such a difficult time. It means so much. You are special.❤️????????????

  58. My Mom left us almost 1 yr. ago. She, too, quit eating and slept all the time. When that happened it wasn’t but a few days. You will someday be able to cope with the loss, but the grief will be with you forever. Prayers for your family.

  59. Kathleen G says:

    Ann, giving you support and hugs during this difficult time Ann. Yes, Hospice is wonderful, caring and so helpful.
    Your pretty early Spring basket reminds me of my mom, she loves the sunny color of Forsythia.
    Blessings, Kathleen in Az

  60. Aww, bless your heart. We are going through the same thing with my little brother who has Down Syndrome :( As you said, it’s in Gods hands.

  61. Ann,
    I’m so sorry to hear that your Mother’s health has taken this turn. As a friend told me years ago, there are some people we’re never ready to tell good-bye. I know you’re a great comfort to both of your parents on this path. I’ll keep all of you in my prayers. Love does not end.
    I love your blog, you touch my life on so many levels.
    Wishing you God’s peace.

  62. Just went through this with my husband’s mom. She passed away two weeks ago. She was 94. There is little you can do except love her, pray, and wait. God bless you all. “Be still and know that I am God.”

  63. Thank you for the update on your mom. It’s wonderful you can be with your parents at this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We’ve just been through this with my sister’ s mother in law so understand what you are feeling.

    The door basket is wonderful, and I’m so happy that you have your blog to share your lovely inspirational projects.

  64. Sending you strength and hugs Anne. Most of us get to travel this road in one way or another and I applaud your grace and dignity as you embrace it.
    Your basket is beautiful.

  65. Ann my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time.
    The basket is a beautiful welcome to you when you come home each day. I feel the same way about forsythia it’s like springs announcement that it’s here!


  66. Ann, our thoughts and prayers continue to cover you and your family at this time. As you take care of those you love remember to take care of yourself as well. Your basket, like yourself, is beautiful.

  67. Hi Ann. Praying for you during this difficult time. I walked this road in 2011 with my dad. We also had Hospice which is a gift from God. Walk one day or even an hour at a time. Hugs from Michigan.

  68. God bless you at this challenging time of your life – I know He will comfort you. I will be in your shoes soon enough and remind myself daily to connect with my mom and cherish our time together.

    Thinking of you. Grateful for your posts.

  69. My heart breaks for you. I know how difficult this is having been through it myself. But how blessed your mother is to have such a loving and faithful daughter to be with her. Isn’t hospice wonderful? I cannot imagine doing that every day but I have a friend who is a chaplain for hospice and she says she receives much more than she ever gives to the people she works with. On a lighter note, I love forsythia. My husband planted one for me last year and I’m looking forward to seeing it bloom this spring. It is a promise that warmer days are on the way. Your door basket is just lovely and looks especially pretty against your front door color. Sending a virtual hug and prayers your way.

  70. Beautiful way to welcome guests. I can’t wait for spring is seems like it’s a long way off yet with all this cold weather. Praying for you and your parents and please call is you’d like a listening ear my friend :)

  71. Ann, I am truly sorry for the sadness and sorrow you and your family are going through. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you all go through this journey.
    Thank you for this post with the great idea for the door basket and also for letting us know what is going on with you. We won’t worry if you have an absence from us. We will know you are taking care of your mom and yourself.
    Hugs to you through cyberspace.

  72. Dear Ann,

    Many of us have traveled that road and losing your best friend is a difficult thing but mom’s love lives on in your heart forever. God will give you and yours the strength to get through this difficult time..his love will keep mom comfortable and in peace.

    Your basket is lovely..winter is always too far away..so it may go on my door a bit earlier this year!


  73. I have walked in your shoes, Ann I will keep you in my prayers as you walk You are doing the correct thing. It is so hard. Remember God is walking with you and yours. The basket is lovely.
    Lu Ann

  74. I am thinking of you, Ann and my prayers are with you and your family. God’s strength.

  75. Cynthia Willis says:

    As one who has walked in your shoes, the waiting is the hard part. Just know you ar doing the right thing, as she would have done it for you. Praying for you at this difficult time. The basket is lovely, I’m going hunting for my bushed tomorrow.

  76. Nan, Odessa, DE says:

    You are doing what you need to do at this time and doing it well, I am sure.
    My family is doing the same thing with a much loved sister in law.
    Remember to speak, sing and pray with your Mom.
    Enjoy this time!

    A new topic I need to know more about is using mirrors. On walls, as well as in groupings and
    table scapes. Maybe this new request will keep you busy.

    You and yours are in my thoughts!

  77. Ann, your basket gives you just the little hint of Spring that you needed to brighten your day.
    We are all so sorry about your mother, but glad you have time to be with your parents right now. While many of us, myself included, have gone down this difficult path, each journey is different. Your mother feels your presence and your family’s love fills the house. Hope you feel the warmth and positive thoughts we all send your way! Be strong!

  78. We love forsythia here too (my husband’s favorite) and I have a wreath I made using faux branches. Trying to wait till March to put it on the door though. Not sure if I’ll make it.
    I’m so sorry about your mom, I have been there with my dad. You have my prayers- May the Lord wrap you and your family in His loving arms and give you comfort and peace.

  79. I have enjoyed your blog for over a year now. You are a very talented lady! So sorry to hear about your mother’s failing health. I lost my mother over 10 years ago to cancer and I do know what you are going through. Cherish the time spent with her :)

  80. Susan Feldtman says:

    Dearest Ann,

    Thank you for your beautiful posts. I, too, have walked in the valley in which you find yourself now. It is a gift from the LORD to be able to spend this time with your mother. Please don’t forget that hearing is the last sense that goes and it’s important to say the right things around your mother even while she is sleeping. I spoke scripture quietly and gently to my mom and eventually told her it was okay for her to step through the door to heaven and a better place. I’m so sorry for your sorrows. But I thank God we will meet again by His grace.

    1. This is what we did as well. We sang a hymn and held my mother’s and my father’s hand as well. It is so hard but it is a blessing. Hugs to you and yours.

  81. Lovely forsythia basket! God bless you and your family. You are right, its all in God’s hands.

  82. The forsythia basket is lovely and gets me excited for spring! We are to have snow again this week in central PA, so spring isn’t coming anytime soon.

    I understand what you are going through with your mother. I, too, went through something similar six years ago. I know you don’t know me personally, but please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

  83. Edie Gottschall says:

    Love the forsythia/basket! Thanks so much for sharing your talents.

    Tears, prayers, and heartfelt empathy for you. Even though I lost my mother 19 years ago, the feelings and memories rushed back as I read your message. Warm thoughts, wishes and cyber hugs to you.

  84. This always speaks to my heart…it must be the cheery yellow.
    I have the same on my door every year. I do not use a basket, though I love it.
    I have my branches in a tin basket (same shape) I bought at a thrift shop. It was a dingy mustard colour and I painted it white and sanded it a bit. It has an embossed design of flourishes so it looks so shabby chic….which I love !
    Thanks for the pic…it cheers me so!

  85. So pretty! Are your forsythia bunched faux or real for this project? I too am carving some spring color!

    Sorry to hear about your mother and the difficult time you are your family are going through. Even though you have no idea who I am, my good thoughts are with you and we could all use as much of those as possible sometimes, even from strangers.

    1. Hi Megan…the forsythia is not real. Oh how I wish it was!

  86. My prayers and thoughts are with you, Ann. I traveled your road twelve years ago at the bedside of my mom. Hold her hand, talk to her and pray.

  87. Ann I am so sorry to hear about your Mom. Wishing peace to you and your family.

  88. Dorene @ Seasonal Chapters says:

    You and your family are in my prayers. Your spring basket is beautiful and a wonderful way to bring a little brightness to your day as you go through this difficult time.

  89. Prayers for you and your family.

  90. Blessings on your family. Praying for the peace that passes all understanding to come swiftly and surely into your lives.

  91. Jane @ Cottage at the Crossroads says:

    Oh, sweet friend! My heart goes out to you during this difficult time. Please know that I’m praying for you, your dad, and the rest of your family. Pinning your lovely forsythia basket.

  92. Sandi Weiler says:

    Dear Ann..you are so right to feel as you do. I feel like we are friends and can share encouragement to each other thru the trials of life.
    God will give you and your Dad the strength you need to get thru the tough days. It’s hard to see our loved ones change so much. Just remember someone is praying for you. God gives us the gift of life. Our gift to God is what we do with life and how we treat others. Praying foe peace and comfort that only God can give.
    Sincerely Sandi Weiler

  93. Heather B. says:

    Thanks for the update on your mom. It’s wonderful you can be there every day! Big hugs!
