Thrifty Easter Door Decor

How do you decorate a door on the cheap?
Goodwill find, a little spray paint and some Dollar Tree flowers.
I had been searching for a metal basket hanging thingy seen all around blog land.
Found this one at my local Goodwill for $1.91 a couple of months ago.
I really wanted a cone shaped one, but this gal will do.
Red on my red door wasn't really going to work.
Yesterday I braved the wind using my Heirloom White spray paint and gave her a new look.
2 bunches of Easter flowers from the Dollar Tree.
Voila, I have a shiny new door decoration for mere pennies (less than $5!)
The wind was blowing the flowers and the basket when I was making photos.
So overlook the fact that it looks off center! ;-)
Love the tiny eggs on the flower bunches.
The best part is for a couple of bucks I can change out the look!
Ahh, not bad for less than 30 minutes and under $5!
Compliments my pansies too.  Yes, I remembered to water them.
So what's on your front door?

  1. Love your new basket. I have been looking for one of the metal ones too, they are hard to find at a reasonable price. Yours looks gorgeous. So pretty on your door. Hugs, Marty

  2. What a PURDY thrifty spring basket...come by and show her off at my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY...hope to see you there:)


  3. I saw one of those hangy thingys yesterday and it was a Christmassy one. White with snowflakes in gold and I didn't buy it cuz it was Christmassy!!! Darn me, I could have spray painted it, I never thought of that. Thanks for the great idea and yours looks lovely!

  4. I love these little metal baskets...I forget where I have gotten mine. If you don't want the flowers to move around, glue a little floral foam into the bottom and poke your flowers in that. You can still change it out when you want.

    I love it, Sherri!


  5. So funny, I just posted on the same thing today! You'll have to stop over to see my front doors too!
