Hi friends, today I’m sharing a willow basket door arrangement for early fall. If you looking for an easy way to decorate a door or an entry wall this is it and just in time for fall.

It will be awhile before the leaves start changing color here in the Texas. That’s why I’m using green branches but I’m envisioning how the front door will look with red, orange and yellow branches.
For this arrangement I’m using mostly olive branches, a large Sweetgum branch and a grouping of bright yellow sunflowers.
Sometimes you just have to use whatever you can find locally. In a couple of weeks though, I plan on getting out of the city so I can gather a variety of vines and oak branches. So excited!
I hope to create a larger arrangement to really kick off the fall season. Decorating the porch with lots mums is first on my outdoor fall decorating to-do list. The hardest part is deciding what color mums to buy.
Should I stick with yellow and white or mix things up this year? What’s your favorite color mum?
Willow Basket Door Arrangement
The door arrangement starts with a woven willow branch slim wall pocket. I’ve seriously been looking for a vintage version of this basket for a long time but no luck. This basket is very sturdy and just the right size for my front door so it works.
The basket has a nice handle on the back that easily fits over a hook or a nail.
Using a subtle dry brush technique, I lightly applied a light coat of chalk paint in tan and cream for an aged effect. The change is barely noticeable, but I like it better and the metal ribs are not as shiny.
To create an arrangement, start with the largest branch first then add the smaller branches in groups. The sunflowers are the finishing touch. I’m letting them dry naturally, so we’ll see what they look like in a week or so.
