April Showers, bring May flowers

Boy do I have the BEST idea to hang on our door for spring!

Yes that is an umbrella.. Here is what  did...

You take an umbrella with a curved handle, silk flowers, ribbon and newspaper (not pitured)

unwrap the little thingy that holds your umbrella together.. then stuff a little newspaper inside, just to give it some body and help hold the flowers..

Stuff your silk flowers in, I fed mine through the wire spokes and rested them on the newspapaer (my picture is sideways)

Tie a ribbon around the center and hang it up..!  Isn't this too cute and fun for April?  My friend had one hanging on her door yesterday and I had to make one to share with you all!

I wish I could put scratch and sniff on here.. This stuff is at Walmart and it is just as it reads.. Fabuloso.. It smells wonderful and it cleans so nicely too.. They have it in a Lavender sent as well.. Either one is great and it is CHEAP too!  Try it, you will love it! 
If you make a Umbrella Door thingy, send me a picture I would love to see.. go ahead, share this idea on your blog, it is just too cute.
Have a great Monday!


  1. I love the umbrella full of flowers on your door. Love the windows on your door too. I would like to try it if I can find an umbrella like that. Mine is the compact kind that fits in my purse. Cute, cute, cute.

  2. Great idea!! You could sell thouse down at the shop!
