New Spring and Summer Door Hanger

I thought I'd try posting some of the other crafty stuff I like to do besides my headbands. Mix it up a bit, you know?

Anyway, when springtime rolled around, I was about to put the same old tired wreath on my door that I have had for about 4 years now. The color had faded and a lot of the flowers had come off during it's use over the years. While I was standing on my porch picking the cobwebs out of it, I realized it would be fun to try something new.

Wreaths can be expensive and since I'm "financially challenged" I decided to go a different route.

I put together the following for less than $20 bucks:
I found a frame in the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby and the blue tin flower holder (don't know the technical name for those) came from the gardening section at Hobby Lobby for half off. The awesome orange flowers came from Jo Ann's at half off too!

I already had the ribbon on hand and I just tacked the ends of it into the top of the door and then I put double sided tape on the back of the frame so it doesn't move around when the door is opening or closing.

I hung the blue flower holder from a tiny nail that I put in the door. If you are uncomfortable with putting a nail in your door, maybe you could use one of those hooks with the sticky stuff that comes off clean and then hide the hook with your flowers.

I think I like this better than a wreath and it will be fun to change it up a bit for holidays and different seasons!
