Spring Door Decor

It's time again for the monthly Pinterest Challenge hosted by Cindy of County Roads 407.


I was up for this challenge because we definitely need a new look on our front door.

I have been using a canvas tote filled with faux flowers for ages.


I need to use faux blooms because fresh die too quickly and dried flowers wilt.


My first thought was to make a new tote from one of the many blue and white tea towels I hoard.


But, this navy and white towel is the only duplicate that I was willing to cut up and the navy clashes with the blue of our house trim.


I really wanted to use something I had on hand and I realized that the sap bucket that hangs on grandpa's old pitchfork would be perfect.


I headed out to the garden shed to see what faux blooms I had that would work for a spring arrangement.


I would have like to have used the yellow blooms in the striped bag, but they are paper and would quickly turn to mush in the ocean air.


I found a nice variety of colorful blooms to use in the rusty bucket.


I expect a lot of my fellow bloggers on this challenge will be using more spring like blooms in pinks and purples, but those colors don't work with our bright red door.


Although a red chair didn't stop me from using pinks and purples on the porch.


So that's my take on the Pinterest Challenge for April and now it's time to see what everyone else created.




Thanks, Cindy of County Road 407 , for organizing the challenge.

  18. Good morning dearest Carol!!!

    This is the time to play with so many fun ideas and I LOVE your idea here. I have the same metal door planter that says, "Bonjour" and I've been using it on our blue gate with Million Bells planted in it. It works like a charm since Ruben drilled holes on the bottom of it for drainage and then I line it with black plastic. A door is tricky for fresh flowers, but you always find a solution!
