Spring Front Door Bunny Flower Basket

We’re sharing our Spring Front Door Bunny Flower Basket as we team up with some of our favorite talented ladies for the Handcrafted Society Blog Hop.

If you’ve been following the monthly Handcrafted Society Series, you may remember our theme last month was “Wood”, and I made a stenciled bee tray.

This month, our theme is “Spring Door Décor,” so I’m excited to share our Spring Front Door Bunny Flower Basket.

When I first started thinking about what to make for this post, I immediately felt a little stuck.

Our home on the island is an open concept home which is so much fun when hosting parties.

But there is very little space to store anything “extra” like seasonal decor.

So, we’ve been really careful about what comes in and out of the house over the years.

Recently we refreshed an old Spring wreath with the ladies of the Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop which left me with only one other door decor idea.

Thankfully, it happens to be a reader favorite.

Here’s a look at how to create a Spring Door Décor Bunny Flower Basket….

Supplies to Make a Spring Door Décor Bunny Flower Basket:

  • Front Door Flower Basket
  • Faux Spring Flowers and Floral Picks (these are from Joanns and Michaels)
  • Paper, Plastic Grocery Bags, Burlap Bags, etc (amount will depend on the depth of your basket)
  • Floral Foam
  • Hair Tie, optional
  • Bunny Bottom Stakes (we found this one at a local antique mall, but you can find similar items at big box craft stores)
  • Ribbon or Bow, optional

Steps to Make a Spring Door Décor Bunny Flower Basket:

Gather your supplies and make sure your basket is free from dirt and debris.

Next, stuff brown paper balls, plastic grocery bags, or burlap bags into your flower basket.

Especially, if it is a deep one like this one.

This will help give your floral stems and picks a base to stand on.

I still consider myself very much a beginner when it comes to putting wreaths and flower arrangements together.

But over the years, I’ve picked up a few little tricks to help you “cheat” if you feel like a beginner too.

One of the easiest ways to style a front door bunny flower basket is to use faux bush stems.

I found these pink hydrangeas at Michaels.

They came with 5 flower heads, so I pulled them apart just a bit and placed them inside the basket.

Then I made several small bouquets with spring floral picks.

I bought these at Joanns last year.

Floral picks come with shorter stems than typical flower bushes.

So, one of the easiest ways to keep them in a tight bouquet is to secure them with a hair tie.

After you’ve created your floral pick bouquets, insert them into your front door flower basket in between the larger flower heads.

This will give you a good head start on the rest of your spring front door bunny flower basket.

Then continue to tuck flower stems here and there until your arrangement is as you desire.

Use caution and care, as you place the bunny bottom stakes into a piece of floral foam.

Place the bunny bottom behind the flower stems.

We packed additional floral foam around the bunny bottom to help secure it in place.

Be sure to fill in any holes with extra flower stems and picks.

Next, add a ribbon or a bow if you like.

Then carefully hang your spring front door bunny flower basket.

Things to Keep in Mind…

There are several things to keep in mind before making this spring front door bunny flower basket.

One, this basket sticks out much further than a traditional wreath.

So, if you have littles that go in and out of the house with backpacks, you might want to find a more streamlined version.

Vintage or antique baskets like these don’t usually come with a door buffer either.

So, you may need to add a bit of felt to the back if you’re worried this kind of basket might scratch up your door.

Finally, our front porch is very well covered so the flowers aren’t exposed to the weather elements or direct sunlight.

If your porch is not covered, you might want to consider using different flowers. 

Spring is such a great time of year to craft new ideas and create a beautiful home.

So I hope you’ve found lots of inspiration today.
