One of the things I am really trying to get back to doing is changing up what is on my front door. I have always had a wreath or some kind of hanging décor on the front door to welcome people. It just makes me smile. But, for however long (I feel like I am just coming out of a fog) I have really been remiss in so many things and changing up my front door is one of them.
Back in the beginning of summer I added this metal pocket hanger filled with tulips.
This was going to be quick and simple. Just run to the dollar store and pick up some black eyed susan bushes and I decided to grab a couple of faux ferns because they are in season now as well.
Since this metal pocket is such an easy switch out, I just decided to leave it hanging on the door and put the new flowers in.
As I am adding the flowers something very obvious hit me. Where is the “Black Eyed” part?! Great, I have it half way assembled and I just realize that these flowers have yellow centers. Not that anyone else probably would have even given it a second thought when they came up to the door. It would really bug me every time I saw it!
Easy fix! Just use a black Sharpie pen! I didn’t mind not covering all the yellow. I just wanted to get a black eye in there! LOL
Solved the problem and it was a thrifty fix! I didn’t take the bushes apart so, they can easily be used in future projects.
When you are having a difficult time getting inspired, step outside and look around your yard or go for a walk around the neighborhood. You will get lots of inspiration!
And remember, something like a welcoming front door is not about spending a lot of money to buy just the perfect flowers or wreath. It’s about just adding something that will make you and your visitors smile!
What do you have on your front door?
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
