Umbrella Door Hanger

Umbrella Door Hanger
A few weeks ago, my oldest daughter asked me why our front doors were naked, and I admitted a touch of decorating fatigue.  She said, “We should do something with an umbrella for April!” so off to Pinterest I went.    Maddie must have decorating trend telepathy, because I found several brand new Spring Umbrella Door Ideas that are simply adorable…

Kelly at Eclectically Vintage made one using live forsythia branches, and you may have seen this Better Homes and Gardens version.

I happened upon paper umbrellas last week at Hobby Lobby, and I knew immediately that Maddie’s idea would actually be simple to put together.  And even more, Hobby Lobby has these umbrellas in several cheerful colors.  With a coupon, one umbrella is about $5.00!

Supplies needed:
2 recycled plastic bags
Assorted silk stems
Butterfly or other whimsical stem (optional)
Wire Cutters
Door hanger or suction cup hangers

These umbrella arrangements literally took just minutes to put together and can be disassembled easily for other uses!
If you use the HL paper umbrellas, I recommend stuffing them with plastic sacks to hold the umbrella in a semi-open position, as well as to give the stems an anchor.
For this project, I chose yellow and white gerbera daisies, a small amount of plastic filler grass, and a yellow butterfly pick.  *Note-I used grass from a past project, and split one bunch in half to use in two umbrellas.

Arrange the flowers/picks in the umbrella.  Use wire cutters to trim any stems that are too long.
Secure the umbrella in as wide of an open position as you prefer, using matching ribbon. 


Hang your cutie on the door for a fresh Spring look!
This project is so versatile, and you can create any color scheme you wish!   **If you like the green umbrella in the above Better Homes and Gardens link, I did see adorable, similar umbrellas at Target!

Happy Spring Decorating!
