Easter Basket Door Decor: Use up your holiday scraps for this creative project

This Easter basket door décor goes beyond a wreath.

You know the pieces and bits that fall to the bottom of your Easter box? Gather them up and grab a glue gun. We’ll help you use those miscellaneous Easter miniatures to make a cute decoration for your front door. It’s not a wreath, but a full Easter basket spilling over with the good stuff.

Vintage collector and mixed media artist, Kim Holmes, shares the instructions for this original spring craft project.
