Create Spring Umbrella Decorations!

It’s finally March! The winter is over. I don’t know about you but as soon as it gets a little bit warmer and sunnier I get all excited about flowers and refreshing my home.

With Easter around the corner, the shops fill up with colourful decorations but if you’re crafty you can create the most beautiful one by recycling an old low cost umbrella! Let’s face it, because it rains all year round in the UK an umbrella is an appropriate decoration whatever the season!

An umbrella wreath

What you need: a straight low cost umbrella, a colourful wide bow, bunch of flowers (fake or real), small decorations ( easter egg nests/ butterflies) and an over the door hanger or a plastic hook.

How to do it:

1. Fan the umbrella canopy open slightly, but not completely. 2. Place flowers in between the ribs of the brolly. Arrange them to suit your personal taste. You can use fake flowers or real. Real ones will require much more maintenance but adding a small plastic bottle on the inside of the umbrella helps a little. 3. Tie the umbrella half way with a contrasting colourful bow to keep everything in place. 4. Hang the finished decoration on the door (or any other place) using either a stick on plastic hook or over the door hanger. This looks great just about anywhere: on the wall, hanging from the stairs and even at a coat stand.
