Easy Burlap Bow and Basket

Posted by on Mar 28, 2013 in burlap, front door, wreaths | 19 comments

My list of “things-to-do” was long today.

Returns. Exchanges. Grocery store.

A bright spot on the list was a baby gift to buy.

I headed to one of my favorite stores in Murfreesboro, Samantha James.

I left with a precious baby gift. . .

…and a basket for me.

I could just see it on my front door. . .

…with a bit of greenery and a nest and a beautiful burlap bow! 🙂

All it would need them would be some hot glue to attach the bow to the basket.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE your darling door basket! It is just perfect! The addition to the faux asparagus fern was such a great spring idea!

    It will make a lovely welcome for all who come and visit!

    Thanks for bringing the great project to TUTORIALS TIPS AND TIDBITS!

  2. Great look! I really like the arrangement.

  3. Simple and pretty, Melissa! Love the basket shape. I saw one similar at an antique mall yesterday, but they wanted $25.00 for it {which I thought was a bit much}. The burlap bow looks great.

  4. I absolutely love this, Melissa! Asparagus fern is my all time favorite plant!

  5. What a gorgeous basket! The nest with the blue eggs is the perfect touch. Great just in time for spring!

    Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to tell the truth however I will surely come again again.

    blog annd will evgentually come back down the road.

  19. Howdy superb website! Does running a blog similar to this take a lot of
    work? I have virtually no knowledge of computer programming however I was hoping to
    start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should
    you have any ideas or tip for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off subject however I just wanted to ask.
    Appreciate it!
