Yeah, it was kinda ugly. Those old nasty flowers in it were gross. So I jerked them out. Which turned out to be easier than I had thought it would be. Here's what I had. (I left the old foam in...no sense in buying new!)
I had an almost used up can of Krylon spray paint in the basement so i whipped that bad boy out and gave it a few coats. love love love it!
The other reason that I had not done anything with this yet was because I really wanted pretty spring flowers but I was NOT about to pay $10 for fake flowers, I don't care how pretty. So yesterday I was in Michael's and they had these really pretty little clusters 50% off. A total of $3 for them all! And its exactly the colors I have been wanting. Green hydrangeas and pinkish peonies...I love it!
So I shoved really hard and got the little bunch down into the surprisingly good old foam. They fit perfectly!
Now for how to get it on the front door. We have a wreath hook (which I could not locate...I am sure its buried with the Christmas stuff in the basement.) But I am pretty sure that it would have hung this little guy smack in front of our pretty door knocker. Luckily, we had a command hook in the basement! So I stuck that sucker on just below the knocker.
I hung the little arrangement on and there you have it! I beautiful, spring-ready door!
The flowers smush just a little when I close the door. But I am okay with that! :)
This is really exciting. For the first time in my life I planted bulbs this winter. White tulips and hot pink parrot tulips in memory of my Grandma Tucker (Parrot tulips were one of her favorites). The shoots are finally appearing! I can't wait until they bloom!
I will kill the deer if they eat them...
Now off to help hubby work on the basement! :) Oh yeah...did I mention it was in the 70s here today?! On my day off! Hallelujah!!!
