DIY Spring Umbrella Door Hanger


About a month into finding Pinterest, I pinned an umbrella wreath hanger.

I thought about it often. Too often.

I obsessed about wanting one but thought it would be too hard to make.

I caved.



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!

xoxo Susie

  2. So cute. The birds net is the perfect accent. I love my double doors but sometimes it's no fun making double displays. I love the idea of one central jumbo arrangement. Happy (almost)spring.

  4. What a fun idea! So, so pretty! Good for you making something you saw on Pinterest. I have about a million things I want to try pinned! Hopefully I will do at least a few of them. The umbrella is so pretty! I was thinking it looked a lot like the ones I saw at Hobby Lobby the other day and I guess I was right! I was very tempted to buy one.
