What is it about fall that just makes you want to craft all. the. things?! I end up making a new fall wreath every year, I just can’t help it! This year I wanted to mix it up a little and do something a little less traditional than a classic wreath but still just as cute and awesome. I was inspired by my sister-in-law who had a basket hanging on her door this summer – such cuteness, I knew I needed my own version! I hope you love this Fall Door Decor Idea as much as I do.
I know how you love to pin ideas to save them for later, so here are a couple of images great for that:
This post is in conjunction with my role as a Michael’s Maker – all opinions are my own. I really love love love how it turned out!
Fall Door Decor Floral Bucket
I grabbed all my supplies at Michaels – their fall decor line is year is SOOOOO good!! You’ll need:
–fall floral stems, large, small, tall, filler – just mix and match what you’d like
–galvanized bucket, oval shape is best because it lays a little flatter
–moss or ground cover

You’re lucky today because I have a super quick video tutorial, just about a minute long to watch the whole process. If you’d rather read the step-by-step tutorial, I have that too, on down!
How to make a Floral Bucket Door Display instead of Wreath
How to make a Floral Bucket Arrangement
First you’re going to need to cut apart all your floral stems so that they’re separate flowers instead of one giant bunch. This will help you when you start placing things. I use wire cutters to cut the floral stems apart.
Next you cut hard foam to fit inside your bucket. You can piece it together, just push it down so it’s securely in place. Then just start poking the stems down into the foam. I started with the largest flowers fist. Then I surrounded those with smaller flowers. Then I added the tall sprigs in the back. It’s your creation, so there’s no rules – just add them until you think it looks awesome.
You can look at it from the front and not worry about what it looks like from the back since it will be hanging on a door.
Once you have all the flowers where you want them, poke in some moss all around the top of the foam so that you won’t see the foam. It also adds some nice texture and dimension to your project.
How to make a Floral Bucket Hanger for a Door
Since you’re going to hang this on your door, you don’t want the bucket scrapping against your door when you open and close it. I used some scrap felt and hot glued it to the back of the bucket in the spots where it might touch the door.
I also used my hot glue gun to attach the Thankful tag to the front of the bucket, but it fell off already, whoops! I need to think of a different way to attach the tag.
The bucket already had rope handles. To hang it, I simply tied twine to each of the handles in a big loops and looped the twine over my wreath hanger on my door.
That’s all there was to it!
I went simplistic with the twine, but you could also add a burlap bow or embellishment to the top.
I just love how it turned out!!
AND, look I have a sneak peek for you about our porch – we embraced country life and installed a boot rack right there on the porch and it’s kind of been amazing. Hoping to have a post up about our DIY Boot Rack soon.
