Farmer's Market Flower Tote

Coming up with something new for your front door is always a challenge. You could hang a wreath but sometimes something unique is in order. This is what I was thinking when I found these great Target Dollar Spot finds.

First, I found this great muslin market tote

Michaels had black, white, grey, and this muslin color.

I thought it could really say something on the front of it but I wasn't sure what so I'm going with a plain one.

You can always add a word or phrase to the front with a stencil

Secondly, I found these great stems for $3 each in the dollar spot. 

The lavender was something I already had and the buffalo check ribbon made a quick and easy bow

Here are similar lavender stems to the ones I used on this project.

The first thing I did besides make the bow, was to stuff the muslin bag.

I used a small pillow form but you could use tissue paper or whatever you have at home that is a light color and doesn't show through the market tote.

Stuff the tote a little or a lot, it's up to you.

I filled the market tote with the floral stems and wired on the bow. 

That's it!

Use your favorite greens and floral stems.

You can fill it with Fall leaves, branches and feathers for the Fall or holly and pinecones for the holidays. 

Create a bow to go with the season too!

Hang it on the front door with a wreath hanger.
