...and finally decided to be creative...I'm using that term loosely. :)
I had the "carrot-shaped" basket and the old faux fern greenery, but bought the deco mesh.
Working with the mesh was a new "skill" for me. I had originally thought I'd like to use orange burlap, but gave that up, thinking the mesh would be more weather resistant, since my door gets lots of sun and rain.
I'm not giving a tutorial, because you'd probably get a good laugh. I wrestled with several layers of mesh, trying to get it to fit the basket, and my hot glue gun melted some of the layers of mesh.
More wrestling, more melted mesh...
... I finally reinforced the back edge, using a big needle and jute twine...added little straight bits of twine on the side, and "roots" on the bottom. After stabbing myself twice with the big needle, it was time out for antiseptic and band-aids.
I hung the carrot on the red front door, to see how it looked, and realized the red and orange color combo wasn't my favorite. Don't know why I didn't think of that before I started this project. Duh!
But, Hubby said it looked great on the red door...bless his heart.
(I may move it to the kitchen door later.)
I forgot to mention that I added the green tulips, because the ferns looked a bit skimpy.
I'm still looking for another door decoration, but I have a feeling I'm a little late...story of my life.
