Metal baskets with holes? Imagine that! You I love know these. I mixed it with a little nature and my door decor was born.
Look at all of those faulous little holes! I have goose bumps!
Jiffy Pots contian my Birch pole trees.
I measured and cut a Birch pole in to three pieces so that each piece would fit snuggly between top and bottom of the rusty container. Slip in to pot.....
....then tap top in to place with a hammer.
Using some reindeer moss...
Stuff the Jiffy Pots.
Add pinecones and twigs....
....for a finished look.
Add a message for exta measure!
And there you have it. Twigs in a basket. Ah, haha!
And remember...you dont have to put it outside. It would look equally as good indoors and you dont even have to water it!

First impressions are important and many times after the holidays are over the front door is left bare naked. Here is a  door decor idea for the rest of the snowy season.


Did you make this?
After you make it, show it off to other members in the Member Junk area.
Post your project photos
