Dollar Store Spring Basket

I have to admit I kind of like the dollar store. You just never know what kind of random stuff you'll find in there. When I was at the dollar store getting supplies to make my cake stand I saw some cute baskets that I thought would be great to fill with some flowers and hang on the door.


What you need:
  • hanging basket (dollar store)
  • floral foam (dollar store)
  • 3 bunches of spring flowers ($1 each at Micheals)
  • a bow
What you do:

 Jam floral foam into the bottom of the basket.

Stick the ends of the flower bunches into the floral foam.
There's one bunch.
There's two bunches.
There's three bunches.

Add a bow to the front of the basket.

Ready to hang!

I made two for my door.

  28. Thank you so much for the idea! I had to baskets hanging on my wall that still had (UGH) fall flowers in them. I had already been (numerous times) to Michael's and used tulips just like those but in white for an arrangement on my kitchen table. I love the mix in the yellows and oranges and wanted them...so off we go again and yippeeeee they were marked down to .89! All I need is a bow to top it off....oh and I added a few little easter eggs to mine for now! Thanks again!

  32. Love how pretty & thrifty this is. I've been wanting to DIY some wreathes for my front doors for spring, but felt like it would still be pricey when I got done buying all the gear. This is way prettier & cheaper too. Will be trying it!

    Would also love for you to link this to my Craftastic Monday party tomorrow:)
