Easy Front Door Summer Basket – Easy Summer Basket DIY – Summer Decorating Ideas – Decorating with Lemons – Lemon Themed Summer Decor Inspiration
Hello Sweet Friends,
I recently gave my home (inside and out) a little seasonal update and the star of the front porch is my door baskets. I received several DM’S on my last Instagram post about those little cuties so I thought I would share with you how I updated my plain wicker baskets with one simple trick. Hint…jute yarn!
If you’d like to see the early summer decor updates I’ve recently added to my home, you can see them here.

Easy Breezy Steps to Update A Door Basket
This was such an easy way to temporarily update my wicker baskets to give them a brand new look for summertime. And when I’m ready to go back to the original look it’s just a matter of removing the jute yarn. Once the baskets had two layers of jute yarn the next step was to add the ribbon and then create the floral arrangement. Sadly, I forgot to take photos of that process, but here’s a quick view of how I created the arrangement: (1) start with the ficus leaf greenery; (2) add the hydrangeas; (3) add lemon stems; (4) add blueberry stems; and lastly (5) add fern leafs.
