Watering Can Door Decor in 3 Easy Steps

20 Minutes
I am inspired this summer to create alternatives to a traditional round wreath that still brighten 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.
Isn't it fun? Here's how you can achieve this whimsical look in three easy steps:

{step 1}  Place floral foam in the bottom of your watering can.
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 makes 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.
A burlap bow tied to the handle. A bird and its nest tucked into the greenery. Shiny beads reflecting light as falling water.

Add one or two creative details and see your container come to life.
The cascading beaded water definitely steals the show in this piece.
It took a little time and patience, but was relatively easy to do. Click the link below to visit the blog and learn how.

Another wreath alternative is to repurpose a wall-mount mailbox. It's perfect for adding holiday accents and easily changes up for the seasons. {Find the tutorial here.}
