Our cheap and easy Thanksgiving door hanger

David really wanted to get a fall wreath for our door. I was feeling crafty and said, 'I can do it myself! Why buy a pre-made one??' So we found this cute little door hanger basket at Michael's along with a lot of super cheap fall decorations. So after a few times of throwing this basket against a wall, David and I finished our little Thanksgiving door hanger.
What you need:
1. A bunch of fall flowers and picks. Remember: It's not fall without a pumpkin in there somewhere.
2. Some cute little owls with glue cobwebs hanging from their eyes (that’s how you know you got a good deal).

3. A twiggy basket that will poke your fingers 1,000 times.
What to do:
Step 1: Just throw everything in the basket. DO NOT cut the flowers at all. Just stick it all in there and call it a day. No need for glue or floral foam.
Step 2: Throw it against the fall a few times because you don't like it.
Step 3: Let your husband do it. He'll cut the flowers and place them like so. Ta-da!


  1. Wow! That is impressive and even more so that your husband helped!

  2. You're funny! The basket turned out very cute. I especially liked the glue cobwebs, though. Why did you remove them? :)

  3. Oh it turned out beautiful! I would probably have thrown my project against a wall at some point as well. I am way to impatient ;)

  4. Haha, thanks I try! I would have left the glue cobwebs if it was still halloween. :-)

  5. Those owls are super CUTE! Nice diy which looks EXPENSIVE :)
