Front Door Decor / Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop

  • Welcome to our Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop.
    Are you addicted to Pinterest?  Do you have several boards with pins that you said "I've got to try that!"?  Well here is your inspiration to create those awesome projects you want to try but have not yet done so.
    If you arrived here from Jamie's blog Scrap Queen then you are in the right place.  If not please start at the beginning with our fabulous hostess Ashley of

    I hope your not disappointed, but my craft today is not a Paper Craft. If you are like me though, you dabble in lots of different mediums besides paper crafts.
    Most of us crafters just love to make things, period.

    I saw this beautiful basket on Pinterest awhile ago and of course "pinned" it hoping to make it one day. When the opportunity to take part in this blog hop came along, I knew right away I would endeavour to create something similar.
    Here is my Pinterest inspiration: 

    From the blog - Lookie What I Did

    And here is my take on on this pretty inspiration:

    These are the details of my project: I purchased all the supplies at JoAnn's.

    The basket has a flat back and is slim, just made to hang on a door.
    The flowers are all silk or plastic flowers.
    I put florist foam in the basket and then arranged the flowers, poking them in the foam.
    I painted the letter white.
    Hot glued the burlap around the basket and then hot glued the letter on top of that.
    Really a lot easier than I had anticipated.

    Here is a pic a little further back so you can see how it looks on my door.

    Thank you for stopping by to see what I've made that was inspired by Pinterest.  Your next stop is Tonya's blog Itty Bitty Ladybugs to see what inspired her.

    I have some blog candy too, a little chest you can decorate!

    All you have to do to be entered in the drawing for my blog candy is
    1. Be a Follower of my blog
    2. Leave a comment on this post

    I will be choosing a winner on Tuesday!
