Watering Can Door Decor in 3 Easy Steps

I’ve been inspired this summer to create alternatives to a traditional round wreath that still welcomes guests and brightens the front door. I received a watering can grow kit as a gift and instantly fell in love with the bright, bold color. I knew it would look incredible against my classic white door. So instead of using it for its intended purpose, I turned it into this.

Carefully cut foam to shape and size with a utility knife. The foam in the bottom of the container will stabilize the arrangement, especially if it is tipped at an angle when hanging on the door.

{step 2}  Trim floral stems as needed with a wire cutter and push into foam.

In this container, one or two types of flowers en masse complemented by a few sprigs of greenery make a big impact. Position tall flowers in the back first and then fill in the front and other empty spaces with smaller flowers and greenery.

Like nature, go a little wild with an asymmetrical look.

{step 3}  Add a touch of whimsy.
