Those beautiful spring decor ideas with ‘doorscapes’ as they are commonly referred called are such fun to put together- and they create a beautiful and inviting entry to your home. As well, they are perfect for special occasions like a wedding or spring photoshoot.
Today I am sharing how simple it is to create this doorscape- and showing another option for it as well. The first one I shared was a full arch – on both sides of the door as well as across the top. Todays version is perfect for those doorways that don’t have as much space around both sides, are a corner door or maybe just if you want a doorscape that is on the more modern asymmetrical side- with just one side and the top covered in blooms.
Start on one side
For this doorscape with chunky layers and going all the way around the doorway- I used a total of (9) 6′ garlands and two baskets. If you would like to do the half arch look- you can use 6 garlands and one basket.
I started by adding the first garland on one side of the door frame. These garlands have loops at the end to attach with a nail- so that is what I did.
You could also use screws or even large staples if that worked easier for you.
Across the Top
I watched the length on this one- because with the layers, each layer will hang a tad higher and I wanted them to spill over just a bit and puddle on the deck. Once the first garland was up- I placed the next one across the top of the door and hanging down onto the other side. To keep it in place- add a screw or nail on the other side of the doorway for the garland to lay on.
The third layer is on the other side of the door (if doing the full arch) For this one- I used the nail that I added to hold the garland up above the door and hung the third garland on that.
Layers of Lovely
To create the full arch, simply keep adding the layers of garland on top of each one that is placed. For the second layer, I started with a second layer where I finished the first one- and went over the top and across the door on the other side- basically in reverse for the first layer. (if that makes sense)
Since this doorscape was supposed to be on the full and fluffy side- I added a third layer to finish it. You will notice that the layers will not reach as far down the more levels you go-so for this layer- I had a little different method to the madness. I started with the arch layer at the top and made sure to add the fuller side on whichever side needed it the most. Then I came in with the side layers and filled in and also draped them down further. Each layer was secured just with nails- most often with several layers using the same nail. You could of course use command strip hooks or something different that does not leave a hole. I don’t get too crazy about holes in the siding on the potting shed- so for me, the nails worked perfectly.
Fill in the Base
You might notice that the bases of the door are full and fluffy. The garlands didn’t all reach all the way to the bottom- so I decided to add in a couple of the hanging baskets here.
I know, I said hanging baskets- but on the ground. The best part of these baskets is that they do have a flat bottom and they also have removable hanging hardware. I placed them on their sides so that the flowers would spill out in the front and positioned the garlands around them to fill in the rest of the empty spaces.
Get the Look
As I mentioned before- these particular garlands are currently sold out- but you can use any floral garland that you love to create this.
I also wanted to say thank you so much for all your kind words and notes about Sweet Pea yesterday. We miss her so much and I know you miss seeing her here too.
