DIY Umbrella Wreath for Spring
I was on the hunt for a new spring wreath for my front door this year, and I wanted to find something a little different from my normal floral wreaths. I have a faux purple hydrangea wreath that I love, but I've used it for many years in a row and I just wanted something fresh!
Well, folks – I have found the perfect fit! This umbrella wreath is GORGEOUS and I put it together in less than 10 minutes. It was so easy, and I am absolutely in love and happy that it is not your everyday spring wreath.
P.S. You may remember when I gave my front door a makeover to this pretty blue. I've got all the details about that project here!
So, I'm spilling the tea so that YOU can create your own umbrella wreath, too! Here's how I did it:
Supplies for DIY Umbrella Wreath
- An old-fashioned umbrella that comes to a point and has a hook handle (I found this white umbrella on Amazon and it was PERFECT! I love the ruffles – it's just what I was looking for!) There are lots of different colors and patterns to choose from online.
I just spotted a plaid one that would be beautiful with fall colored flowers for an autumn wreath!
- Faux Flowers – Grab enough faux flower bushels so that your umbrella is nice and full. I spent some time browsing at Michaels and held things together to make sure they all went well with each other. I wanted a variety of flowers but all within the same color scheme, but you could also do all one flower like tulips or peonies. I also grabbed a greenery bushel. (I snagged all of these from Michaels at 40% off. They were a little bit more than I wanted to spend, but I wanted to make sure my umbrella looked full and somewhat realistic.)
- Ribbon – choose whatever ribbon you love or have on hand, you'll only need about 16″ of it!
How to Make This Umbrella Wreath for Spring
- I started by stuffing a few pieces of extra packing paper into the bottom of my umbrella. This made it look just a little bit fuller while still being able to click closed. This is optional, but I think it helps the overall look.
- Using gardening shears or heavy scissors, cut apart all of your bouquets so that you have individual flower stems. This helps to place your flowers evenly throughout so you don't have big groupings of one type of flower and can really control the look of your wreath.
- With your umbrella closed, tie a ribbon around about halfway down.
- Start stuffin'! I began with my largest flowers first, placing throughout. You mainly want to focus on the front half of your umbrella so that the backside will lay flat against the door. Then, continue sticking flowers in wherever you like! I played with it for a few minutes and moved things around until I achieved my desired fullness.
- Hang on your front door and admire your handy work! You made a gorgeous wreath that will stand out from your neighbors. You're the best!
What do you think?? My front door and I are now ready for April showers!
