This easy umbrella wreath is a whimsical, creative and unique front door decoration to celebrate spring. After all, April showers bring May flowers!
Celebrate April with a new inexpensive door decoration. This easy, quick and cute DIY can be put together in under 10 minutes for less than $5! I think most people have an old umbrella lying around. It can even be broken! All you need are some dollar store silk flowers and ribbon.
Every season has a variety of wreaths. I like to use something other than a round or grapevine wreath. At Christmas I have a stocking filled with silk flowers on my front door. During winter, I have a pair of white ice skates with greens. Now, I have this darling umbrella.
The Method of an Umbrella Wreath
- an old umbrella
- 2-3 stems of silk multi-flowers
First, unhook the tie that wraps around the umbrella. Lay it flat on a table and place your flower stem inside the umbrella so the flowers are sticking out. (Keep the flower stem together instead of cutting the individual flowers, but spread them out) Next, tie your ribbon around the umbrella. Hang the wreath on your door by the handle.
You can place the flowers up high where they cover the handle, or down lower.
Search your yard for a birds nest and buy some small eggs at the dollar store for added interest.
Embellish with a butterfly or dragonfly clip.
You can use real flowers, but you will need aqua tubes to keep them watered. This may make the umbrella a bit heavy so plan on having some wire for hanging.
