Spring Forward (But Don’t Trip)

Spring Forward (But Don’t Trip)

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…

“Revive me!”, it said.
And so I have…

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?DIY yard urn wrought iron umbrella stand from thrift store by Sadie Seasongoods

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!

Craft on!

    What a unique idea!!! I love different things and this is definitely one of them!!! Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks, Patricia! Finding the “perfectly imperfect” old umbrella was the hardest part! But it really is stunning and a nice change of pace from a wreath. Thank you so much for checking out my website- I post even more pictures on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/sadieseasongoods). Thanks again!

  2. How did you hang it to the door?

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Hi, Beth- Thank you for swinging by and asking this! I threaded some narrow ribbon through the “skeleton” of the umbrella (all those metal parts inside) and just made a small loop to hang on the door’s nail. I used red ribbon to blend in with the door, but in the end, the flowers cover it up completely!

  3. I love this so much, what a fun idea, and it’s totally perfect for spring! I featured this on my blog today and I’m just stopping by to pin it!

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Jessi- thanks so much for your kind words…for featuring it on your blog…and for pinning it from my page directly. Total awesomeness- thank you so much!

  4. pinned! This is just sweet and adorable. and yes makes me feel pretty too. ^_^ I would love this on my door, just in time for the spring season.

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      I’m so glad you like it! It really is cheery and makes coming home (even just to do laundry!) worth smiling about. Keep your eye out for the perfect old umbrella!!

  5. That is such a cute idea! Visiting from Making Monday link up.

    • sarahwpb@yahoo.com says:

      Thanks, Carole!! So glad you like it- I do, too!!! 🙂 The trick is finding the perfect old umbrella.

  6. I’ve always been enamored with a flower filled umbrella. You did a terrific job. I bet it looks great from the street! Plus it’s not your “usual” door wreath!!
    Thanks for sharing it with us at Project Inspired{d}!

      Thank you, Diane! I’ve got Project Inspired’s Link Party on my rotating calendar, so you’ll likely be seeing more from me!!

  8. I’m trying to decide what I love more, the color of your front door or the end result of revival of the umbrella.

      We got lucky with the color of the door- it was that way when we bought it! And it does make for a fantastic backdrop for various door decor. Thank you so much for the sweet words- I’m a little bit in love with the umbrella, too! 🙂
