I received this catalogue in the mail and as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted this for my front door. Two reasons not to order it-too expensive and I believe it is made with dried flowers, which would never hold up in the winds around here. So I took the challenge and decided to make my own version.
The ribbon is what I loved about this basket. I knew I could never find ribbon like this at stores in my area, so I decided to make wired fabric ribbon.
I cut 3- 4 1/2 inch strips of the main fabric and 6- 2 inch strips for the border.
Sewed the strips together to make three continuous strips,
And sewed the three strips together .
I followed the package directions to apply heat-n bond to the two outer edges.
Then I folded over the fabric with the wire in the middle and fused the fabric together.
I filled a metal basket I found at Hobby Lobby with floral foam and moss. I tied on my wired fabric ribbon and I was ready for the flowers. I filled the basket with flowers I bought at Michaels.
Now my question for you. Is it wrong to put a bright floral arrangement like this on the front door in the middle of winter?
