Inspired by. . . trash

You may remember the Winter Door Hanger I shared a couple of months ago. I decided it needed an update for Spring!

This update cost me absolutely nothing! I already had the flower pots and the ivy. I'd purchased them last summer in hopes of creating this beautiful Flower Pot Wreath that Debbie shared on her blog last June.

The orchids and other silk greenery my mother found in a dumpster! As they say, "One persons trash is another persons treasure!"

Just for the record... my mother was not dumpster diving {smile}. The silk flowers were actually wrapped in plastic and she found them in the same dumpster she uses to deposit her trash.

I tied the pots to the star frame using some jute I had left over from the original project. Some green styrofoam tucked into each pot and a bit of glue hold the stems in place. A quick, easy update, just in time for Easter!
