About a month into finding Pinterest, I pinned an umbrella
I thought about it often. Too often.
I obsessed about wanting one but thought it would be too hard to make.
My Mom has been here this week so I had the joys of shopping with her.
I love you MOM!
What you will need is one umbrella, a handful of tulips, fern, grass and nest.
I first tied a ribbon around the center of my umbrella.
This also allowed me to just pick and stick my flowers.
No foam. No gluing.
Just pick and stick!
I like to hang my wreath on my door and work from there.
I'm sure I keep the neighbors entertained...ha.
The tulips have wire stems so you can just bend where needed.
I never spend more than 30 minutes making a wreath.
I find if you just pick and stick you won't fall prey to "is it good enough?"
I like the natural look.
I also love the fact that I can reuse everything.
I wired the nest in so it's good and snug and reusable.
I had someone ask me why I never used hot glue.
I live in the deep south so glue does not work well outdoors. melts in 3.4 seconds
The flowers came from Michael's and the umbrella Hobby Lobby.
The nest was something I have had around for years.
You may have to bend your umbrella wires a bit.
I bent the front 3.
In the past, I have always made a wreath for each door.
This year I decided to go solo.
Although both doors can open, we only use one.
So I placed a tiny nail in the middle frame.
This part stays stationary so it worked perfect for the wreath.
This umbrella is a "jumbo" size.
For a single door you may need to use a regular size umbrella.
At Hobby Lobby they have many spring colors to choose from. love em all!
I know it's not quite spring yet but our weather here didn't get the memo. Ha!
