How to Make a Door Arrangement

Posted by on May 5, 2013 in crafts, front door, wreaths | 31 comments

I am a visual learner.

I don’t want to hear about how to do something.

I don’t want to read about how to do something.

I want someone to show me.

So, that is what I am going to do for you today.

For those who claim to have no creativity. . .

(which I believe EVERYONE has creativity!)

You can follow these simple pictures and have a beautiful arrangement for your front door.

How to Make a Door Arrangement

Take a quick trip to Hobby Lobby.

Here is what you are going to put in your cart.

Supplies for a Front Door Arrangement @ DaisyMaeBelle

1 bushy green plant

1 taller green plant

1 wispy stem that has a bit of color

1 cone shaped container

Green floral foam

(No picture!?)

Fill the container with the foam.

From this point, I like to hang my container on the door.

It is just easier to work with.

Insert the bushy plant in one side.

Insert the trailing plant in the other side.

Insert the tall plant in the back,

slightly to the middle.

Insert the wispy stem of color in the middle of the tall plant.

That is it for the “arranging!”

Onto the bow.

While at Hobby Lobby also put a roll of wired ribbon in your basket.

And, green floral wire.

I buy the wire that is already cut into lengths about the size of pipe cleaners.

How to Make a Bow @ DaisyMaeBelle

Cut the end of the ribbon at an angle.

Always cut the ends at angles.

About 10 inches from the end,

twist the ribbon once.

Fold the other side over,

making a loop about 6 inches long.

Twist.

Fold the other side over making another loop the same size as the first loop.

Twist.

Continue the looping and twisting,

until you have 3 loops on each side.

Twist the green floral wire around the center.

Insert the wire into the foam.

It is the perfect finishing touch!

You can use any plants that you like.

Just make sure that you have

1 bushy

1 trailer

1 tall

1 wispy color

1 great ribbon

Get creative with it!

Life to the full!

  1. That’s very pretty. I have a basket of greenery on my front door that I love but you’ve convinced me that a gingham bow would be the finishing touch. :)

  2. Love your door arrangement. I have a metal door hanger the same shape except it’s an open one. I can put some burlap in it to hide the foam. Great tutorial gal,very helpful
    Your arrangement looks so pretty on your door, love all the different parts you put in it. I have some of that gingham ribbon but it’s red/white. I’ll have to see what other colors HL has, it’s on sale this week also. Plus the stems are 50% off, gotta love that.
    We were looking for our summer sheets so had to go thru several boxes from back of shed to find them or we’d be using flannel all summer. Ended up going thru several of boxes, got more things organized, combined in boxes, threw some really old junk away and have a box for the thrift store.
    Not what I was hoping to do today but made mistake of going out to see what hubs up to. Now if I can find the box with that container in it for the door. Happy week

  3. I am visual too Melissa. Great picture tutorial! Love the finished product – cute idea!!

  20. Great tutorial and lovely arrangment! The checked bow sets it off nicely. I agree everyone has creativity — we just need the confidence to use it. I would love it if you would consider linking to Busy Monday at A Pinch of Joy, a link party for ideas that make life better, easier or more fun!

  22. Visiting from Common Ground-I love door arrangements-they are such a welcoming addition, I just don’t think any entrance is complete without something that says- “come on in!” Love it!

  23. I love the steps for this. I think I can do this! Thanks so much because I’m much more of a visual learner, too:)

  24. This is really pretty! My front door needs something new. Need to find a container like that…and have my mom make me a bow. I’m bow challenged. :)

  25. Found this on one of the home care/décor sites, love the colors that you used. We recently got a HL in our area but do have a Michaels even closer so I will check out the floral department. For crafting, I need both the visual and the written – had to teach myself needlepoint from a book as mom gave up on me! One thing, I did get lost on the bow making part, could not see where it gave the amount of ribbon, in total, that I should be working with to create the right sized bow? Looking forward to making some summer decorations, thanks for the tutorial.

    • Great question! Sorry I did not include that info! I bought a 5 yard roll of ribbon, and used about half of it!

  26. You’re my new BFF! I’m a visual learner too! Your arrangement is adorable. I have similar one I designed a year or so ago but you’ve encouraged me to resdesign it. Thank you!

  27. I love the idea — are you going to do a Christmas one with the same container?? And did you get the cone container at Hobby Lobby also? I am ashamed to way that I have the same sad falling apart wreath at my front door all summer and fall :-( . You are inspiring me.

  28. I have been looking for a container like that, that isn’t too expensive. Do you know where I can find a cone shaped container?

  29. THANK YOU for this tutorial. When I read the opening statement how your brain works, I went, finally there is someone whose brain works just like mine :-). I will make a fall-ish one by following these directions, yeah!!!
