Happy Daylight Savings Time Day (if you’re happy about it)!! In honor of the time change, I decided to switch out the early/pre-Spring wreath I made from an old bed sheet and hang something more symbolic of March and April- such as an umbrella…
You may (or may not) recall that I did a road trip to Forest City and Rutherfordton, NC with one of the bad pennies. And on that trip, I scored a tattered green umbrella that I had plans for…
Well, I’m a woman of my word. With some carefully plucked Spring flowers from Michael’s Craft Store (and I’m not a faux-flowers person, but in this instance…they were perfect), our front door now greets you with this.
It’s lightweight and the folds of the umbrella are easy to fill with flower stems! Doesn’t it look like a freshly-wrapped bouquet straight from the florist? I hope so, because that’s precisely the look I was going for.
And to hang it, I safety-pinned a small loop of ribbon to the umbrella…and once it was hung on my door, I fluffed the flowers around to perfectly hide it!
And here’s a blogging bonus- did you happen to notice that I reused my pretty green umbrella in my repurposed umbrella stand project?
Yep, it’s the same one- and you really get to appreciate how sophisticated it looks next to a modern umbrella, eh?
May the sun be shining on you today…Spring is near!
