Fleurs Basket for Spring

I am the world's worst wreath maker.  Yup, I admit it.  And while I could probably easily plunk down $20 or so to buy one, I'm just too frugal to do it.  I wanted to add something, anything to my front door for Spring...
This fleurs basket is from Marshall's.  It's normally hanging in my tearoom.  I bought it a couple of years ago and as luck would have it, it fits into the skinny place between our wood door and the glass door.
It's holding a bundle of lavender.   Note the plastic wrap still on the lavender.  Completely on purpose because I don't want to be picking up lavender buds every time we open and close the door.  What's nice, though, is we get a sniff of lavender every time we come home.  And, of course, wreath problem solved!

Great basket. I may have to go to Marshalls and see if I can find one, too. I have that same issue with the storm door. You could add some faux lavendar and keep the real tucked in the plastic so you get the scent {but not any mess}.

It looks so cute and a creative alternative to a wreath.I love lavender also, but it sure can get messy.
