How to make a hanging floral basket arrangement

The fun thing about faux florals is that you get to create whatever it is you want with them! 

When I went shopping for a new front door decoration, I wasn’t able to find what I was looking for, so I decided to make one on my own!

What you will need

Choose your materials
You will need a hanging basket, floral wire, wire cutters, faux flowers, and scissors. You can find all of these materials at your local craft store.

Cut the stems of your faux flowers
Using wire cutters, cut the stems of your faux flowers so that they are about 6 – 10 inches long.

Create a base for your floral basket arrangement
Using the floral wire, create a base for your arrangement by wrapping the wire around the rim of the hanging basket. Make sure that the wire is secure so that your arrangement will not fall out of the basket.

Add the flowers to the basket
Now it’s time to add your flowers to the basket! Start by adding the larger flowers first and then fill in with the smaller ones. Once you’re happy with the way it looks, snip off any excess stem with scissors.

Hang your arrangement
Your front door is the perfect place to showcase your beautiful new floral arrangement.

How I created my basket

I found this pretty wicker basket (this one is similar)  and thought I would paint half of it black. making new arrangements is something I’ve always loved to do.

Since my front door is white, I wanted my door decoration to show up and pop against the white backdrop!

I used frog tape to protect the part I wanted to keep wicker and then Krylon spray paint in black. 

What I Did Next

After the paint dried, I added three small pieces of green foam (blocks) on the inside to be able to secure the stems.

This is where you can get really creative. There is no right way or wrong way to add your faux florals…..just do what you like! 

Lastly, I added a neck scarf bow I had laying around or you can make a bow from ribbon if you like!

When I went to take a photo of the floral basket arrangement on my front door, I discovered a nest of baby birds in my late winter/early spring wreath! Yikes, I had moved it inside the door and heard the momma bird outside chirping in distress!

Onto a new plan. I took a photo of the basket on my back door so you could see it. I guess I am going to have to wait to hang it on my front porch! Stay tuned. We had snow today, so my porch update is going to have to wait. 

Baby Birds and snow! Do you have this going on where you live? 🙂
