Bringing Spring to the Door!

The minute we had warmer temps I had the urge to bust out all the pretty stuff for Spring! I should of known that was short lived, we've been getting more snow all weekend! Anyways, I wanted to bring Spring to my front door, even if the weather outside wasn't so inviting yet!


I headed to Jo Ann's where I was really pleased to find an adorable flat-backed, faux watering can just perfect for the front door! I always have a nice time browsing their selection of flowers because there's truly such a variety, I love it! This time I opted for pretty white tulips and a bright pink flowery, long- stemmed bloom. Once I was home, I took a piece of black felt that I already had, traced the shape of the watering can with white colored pencil and cut it out. Next, using a hot glue gun, glue it to the back of the watering can leaving the very top unglued for now. This will act as a protector from scratching your door in the event of it moving! If necessary, use a wire cutter to trim the end of the flowers to fit the length desired. Play around with their placement until you're happy with how it looks! I took the adorable burlap and polka dot ribbon, cut it to length and super glued it to the back of the can, and then glued the felt that you had previously left unglued at the top, and glued it into place. And voila, hang on your door and relish all the cuteness, even if the weather isn't permitting just yet ;)

  7. Beautiful! I wish I could see a closer picture of how it is hanging. Do you have a hook on the door or a door knocker? I would have to figure out another way of hanging this on our door. Love it! Thanks.

    1. Hi Judi! I have a satin nickel finish 3M hook hanging on my door and I just created a loop at the end of the ribbon for it to attach. Hope that helps! Thanks for stopping by!
