Recently, I saw Aunt Peaches' patriotic paper umbrella wreath and remember how much I liked Camilla's paper umbrella wreath. I've had it pinned forever! So I dug out a box of paper umbrellas from the cabinet and went to work!
First, I opened up all of the umbrellas. Don't they look pretty in a nice Pyrex bowl from my collection? <3
Then separated them by color.
Got a large styrofoam wreath that I hadn't used yet.
I wanted to have all colors spread pretty evenly throughout the wreath, so I applied them color by color.
I did my best to space them out, but one box of 48 umbrellas was not enough to cover my large wreath! It definitely would work with a smaller one though.
So I took out all the umbrellas and bought some more at Walmart.
I decided to paint the white wreath form so it wouldn't be so white underneath! I picked a pretty gold. It ended up looking like sparkly sand.
And here it is on my front door! Love!
