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.

  31. “I love the idea of movement, but this White Bandage Dress can be especially difficult to achieve with a knit because they’re all Herve Leger Bandage dresses going to be formed to the body. So we love to add movement Beer Costume with these bands that emulate fringe, and the shine of the beads gives a further illusion of movement.”Oh and what was Lubov herself wearing to work yesterday as I captured all this? An Herve Leger moto jacket: the perfect synthesis of what she calls “girls run the world” power and never-stop movement.
