I love wreaths. I love making wreaths and I love wreaths that come from places like Pier1.
At the end of March I pulled out my go-to spring time wreath adorned with butterflies and birds. The weather has been unusually nice this time of year so it seemed appropriate. Two years ago when I made this wreath it was super cute. 2011, not so much. It needs new butterflies.
A light bulb went off…I need an April Showers wreath. Off to Hobby Lobby I went.
You too can make this very easy, VERY inexpensive wreath for your door. Here’s what you need:
Straw wreath, keep the plastic on
Several packages of paper cocktail umbrellas
Just two of these little packages of umbrellas will not be enough.
Begin sticking the umbrellas in the wreath.
Keep going. The more the better. I don’t want to see any straw.
I think there are about 67 umbrellas here.
Now isn’t that cute?
