{ DIY Spring Cottage Mailbox Basket Front Door Decor }

HAPPY Tuesday, pals!!!! Eeeek I'm so excited to be back in my office creating, writing, designing, blogging & everything HOME!! I want to apologize for my week long break as I wasn't intending it to be that much of a gap in posts...I haven't been feeling well physically & that puts my mind in a different place, so I'm so sorry. I tend not to follow the masses or be a people pleaser nor keep up with Jones' but sometimes running a business can be hard, especially when you put yourself out there like blogging etc.. Anyways today I'm refreshed & ready to post about something I'm super passionate about but have only shared a few times in the past few months..DIY!!!! So, I was at HomeGoods the other day shopping for a client & spotted this post mailbox {post} basket on sale for under $10..umm coming home with me was a MUST ha! I brought it home & knew exactly what I wanted to do with it as our front door is in a state of disaster...more on that soon! I grabbed some simple leftover supplies I had in my office & got to work. In less than 10 minutes I had new charming door decor! Come see how I did it below...

S U P P L I E S  +  H O W  T O:

  • Greenery or Flowers of any kind you like.
  • Burlap or fabric for inside the basket. { I used an old farmhouse pillow cover }
  • Nail, 3M or String to attach to the door. I used a piece of string & pieced it threw the basket & tied to door knocker.


So the basket did come with two hooks on the back { See above photo }, but I didn't want to use two nails that spaced apart on my door. This is why I used the above method instead. You can do whichever is better for you!

Inspiration comes from all over for me & this little tiny coffee cup filled with creamy vanilla cappuccino was my inspiration for the type of flowers & greenery I used! I wanted something fresh but dusty cozy vintage looking...I used lavender sprigs, & some other lightly colored green branches ..sorry I'm horrible at flower names!

Side Note: If you know the names of any of these flowers leave them in the comments! FYI flowers are faux.

This door will be getting a quick makeover once we add something new...hint ha! Until then, I'm loving this spruced up simple door decor & this basket, well it has my heart..How ADORABLE & thrifty..check check! I hope you love this tiny little #DIY.
