I really enjoy doing things with my hands, creating and not just things that involve food. 😀
I saw this darling idea for a Summer wreath on Pinterest and saved for a later time.How stinkin’ cute is this?
Here was the rub for me, I was having a devil of a time finding cocktail umbrellas!
This past May my husband and I went home to Hawaii for the month. One afternoon we went out to lunch with an old pal and what did I spy right next door but a Party Store, YAY! I wasn’t sure how many umbrellas I would need so I figured, what the heck, I’ll buy 3 boxes. I mean who doesn’t smile when there’s a colorful umbrella in their drink?
So let’s get started then…
I had a light-weight Styrofoam form in my craft box but it does get a bit windy here in the middle of the desert… hmmm… 💡 I took a wooden skewer and poked two large-ish holes through the top and bottom of my soon to be door wreath. I then ran some coated floral wire through the two holes and secured them tightly on both the top and bottom. This way I could wire the finished project to the front screen door.
Next, I separated the different colored umbrellas for easier assembly. The first pick I inserted was a touch long, so I still had my wire snips at hand…that worked. I alternated the colors as well as the depth of each umbrella pick until I had the majority of the green foam covered.
How close does that look to the Pin? ⭐
