Valentine Umbrella Wreath

Last summer I tried making an umbrella wreath with flowers.   It was easy and fun.

 

 

 

 

Later I was wandering in my favorite thrift store and found a worn Betty Boop umbrella with red hearts, her image in black, white, and red, and the name BETTY BOOP on the umbrella material.  I instantly thought of Valentine’s Day with all the red hearts.  I bought the umbrella and put it away.

 

 

 

 

Just as I planned last summer, I am making a winter umbrella wreath for the front door using the thrift store umbrella and a mix of red roses from Dollar Tree and Walmart. Remember I live in Florida and the high temperature today is 78 degrees F.  If we get a windy rain storm, then I’ll remove it.  If you have an umbrella with an old fashioned hook on the end, it’s easy to hang and remove.

 

 

 

 

First I started making a bouquet of red roses from my collection of faux flowers.  I loosely tied my bouquet with jute cord.  Because it wasn’t full enough,  I picked up a few more at Walmart. I added them to the bouquet.

 

 

 

 

I tried putting the flowers in the umbrella while it was on a flat surface, but that doesn’t work well. Hang the umbrella on a hook, insert flowers and adjust as needed. I arranged mine hanging on the front door. Last summer my umbrella was at an angle but this time I was trying to do it more straight on the hook.

 

 

 

I had a Dollar Tree red burlap ribbon which I tied around the umbrella.  I added curled small Valentine ribbons to the burlap in the center.  It really looks great now.

 

 

 

 

Simple and oh so easy to make – another umbrella wreath decoration!

  4. I have a friend who loves Betty so looked on line for your umbrella. I imagine that you got a deal at thrift store because I found the exact umbrella and it was $3.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
