Valentine door basket

I have one more Valentine project to share with you. I updated my door basket  from Christmas and turned it into a Valentine display. 

This basket has been on our front door since Christmas and looks a bit weathered, but I left it as is and just added some Valentine hearts. I think it looks kind of like a FTD bouquet wannabe but I still like it. 






This is how it looked at Christmas.  We have a small overhang on the front, but it rains here so much that the basket does look a little roughed up compared to before. I wanted to repurpose it for Valentine's day. 



I cut out a few hearts and stamped them with my french script stamp. I made a small banner for the front and added some heart picks  to the rest of the basket. I thought the Christmas and Valentine picks worked well together.  The bow was made from a strip of the basket. 





I like the contrast of the white and the red hearts. This was so easy to put together.  Everything was already done, all I had to add were the hearts. I love a quick project.



Red hearts and berries go well together. Hubs thought it looked really cute too.


 I love the little white hearts as well. So now I have a red Valentine door and pink hearts on my mantel. Wishing you a sweet Valentine's day! 
Thanks for visiting.
