A child’s umbrella becomes a Spring door Decoration

 

Welcome Spring! Inspired by a pin from Pinterest and the warmer weather, I made a pretty new door decoration for Spring.  On our front door, a child’s umbrella now welcomes Spring to our house. I found the child size umbrella at Dollar General and used things I had from old wreaths and arrangements. It turned out pretty cute.

To give the bottom end a little pouf, I stuffed in some newspaper before I added the ribbon.

Next, I loosely arranged the flowers in a small piece of floral foam and then stuffed that in the left side of the umbrella and put more newspaper around it to hold it in place.

For shaping, I put more newspaper in the other side of the umbrella and added lots of moss on top of that and in the folds.

I glued a little nest and eggs on top of the moss.

Here’s the inspiration and mine.

The scale of my tulips is a bit too big and the handle is turned but it’s still cute and colorful.

Pansies were planted in the urns and are looking pretty sparse right now but they’ll fill in.

I used moss from the back yard to fill in around the pansies.

We had the most gorgeous weather last week, but this week it’s back to cold and windy with frost warnings at night! Come on Spring!
