I love sales! I found this hanging grapevine basket at Joann’s on sale for $8.49 from $29.99. Score! I thought I could use it for my front door and easily change it up each holiday.  Today, I am sharing an easy Valentine front door decoration that I made.

Materials:

  • Grapevine hanging basket
  • Wide burlap ribbon
  • Pink ribbon
  • Love sign
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • Safety pins

Here is a close up of the basket.  I saw them during Christmas and liked it but I didn’t want to spend thirty dollars on it.  Even with my 40% off coupon, I couldn’t do it. Yes… I’m THAT cheap! But nine dollars… that’s 70% off!

I bought a roll of wide burlap ribbon and safety pinned it so that I can easily take it off for St. Patrick’s Day when I change it.

I hot glued a pink ribbon and a “love” sign made of MDF. I originally had the intention of painting it, but once I saw the white, I liked it. Since my front door is black, I thought the white letters would pop better.

Now, I’m not a HUGE fan of fake flowers and plants (unless their crafted out of paper… or duct tape!) but I couldn’t resist when I saw these. Oh! And I bought them in green too for March (they were on sale too!).

Pretty right? I put them inside my basket and had a pretty and easy Valentine front door decoration in literally minutes!

I already can’t wait to change it up for St. Patrick’s Day and Easter.
