Beautiful yellow Ranunculus, purple roses and faux lavender for a stunning spring hanging basket for the front door.

Funny story, I had birds picking at my winter wreath. After hanging this new door basket on the front door, two little birds were squawking at me. They are a little bit upset with the old wreath being removed.

  • One medium size hanging basket
  • 2 dry foam bricks 2.6″ x 3.4″ (also known as floral foam brick, not Styrofoam)
  • 2 faux Lavender Bunches (Hobby Lobby)
  • 3 bunches of faux yellow Ranunculus (Hobby Lobby)
  • 5 purple long stem faux Roses (Hobby Lobby)
  • Scissors
  • Wire cutters
  • Floral wire
  • Faux bird nest with eggs (local craft store)
  • Wired Ribbon for bow

Add two dry foam bricks into the basket. You may need to trim one of your bricks to fit the basket by scoring the dry foam bricks with the sharp end of the scissor. Then snap to break the brick.

These faux lavender bushes were the perfect filler. Remove any price tags. Push the lavender bushes behind the bricks (not in the bricks). They will be secure and will not fall out.

Just bend the stems into place. Two bush stems filled the back layer.

Use wire cutters to cut the stems of the flowers.

For this project, the three of the Ranunculus stems were cut to the same height. The yellow Ranunculus are my main flower. Three stems were enough. These stems had several blooms and buds on them.

Now you will insert one stem in the center. Add one Ranunculus to the right. Add the next Ranunculus to the left. You can bend the flower into position.

The purple roses will be the accent color. The purple is a beautiful contrast with the yellow. A total of five purple roses were used in the arrangement. One rose was placed in the center. Two roses were placed on each side towards the middle. The final two roses were placed near the front.

Add a small bird nest to the hanging basket wreath with floral wire.

You will need to cut a piece of floral wire to slip through the bird nest. Angle the nest into the basket, push it upwards (slight slat) and secure with the wire. This little nest comes with the eggs.

Not only does it look beautiful in the basket, but it also tells other birds “hey this nest is our home”. It means that birds will not fly up to your door and make a nest in your wreath. You must have eggs in it, or they will use it. Try it!

The final step is to add a bow. You can add it to match your floral arrangement or go neutral. If you already have a bow, recycle it and save some money.
