Winter Basket for the Front Door

      Sometimes I like to use alternatives to the
traditional front door wreath.

Brown baskets

Today I'm making a winter front door basket using a thrift store basket I painted a while back.  

You can read all about painting a basket HERE.

This is an easy project once you find the perfect basket. 

I began by collecting my supplies... a few sticks from the yard and a couple of sparkly snowflakes from the dollar store. 

Snowflakes and sticks

I sprayed the sticks with white spray snow and stuck them into the basket with a mixture of real and faux winter greenery.

I wired one of the snowflakes onto the front of the basket an stuck one in the back behind the greens.

I made a big buffalo check bow and attached it to the front snowflake.

I gave the basket a couple squirts of the spray snow and it was finished.

This was an exceptionally easy project with thrift store, dollar store and back yard supplies!
