During the spring season, I love to fill my home with flowers (though, I sometimes opt for faux flowers) to bring that springtime magic indoors.

Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Umbrella with a hooked handle (I found my adorable sunshine yellow umbrella on Amazon!)
- Faux flowers
Here’s How to Make Your DIY Floral Umbrella Wreath:
Begin by slightly opening the umbrella. The umbrella I used had a strap around the umbrella; if yours does, too, just wrap it around the back so it is not visible, or you can cut it off.
Slide your faux flowers into the umbrella, making sure that the flowers are still visible from the top of the umbrella. You can use whatever flowers you’d like. For this DIY Floral Umbrella Wreath, I thought it would be fun to use tulips since they are such a popular spring flower. Get creative with the flowers you use, as well as the colors of your flowers and umbrella. Also, you can use as many flowers as you’d like. I used two bundles of tulips from the craft store, but you could always add even more flowers to make your wreath fuller and even more festive for spring.
Once the flowers are put in place, gently lay the umbrella down.
To keep the flowers in place, you will need to tie some ribbon around the umbrella to keep it closed (the strap that came attached to the umbrella will not go around the umbrella with the flowers inside). Slide some ribbon of your choice underneath the umbrella until the ribbon is officially halfway through. Tie a knot with the ribbon to secure the flowers.
Now, to make the wreath’s ribbon cuter and more decorative, tie the ribbon into a bow. Using wired ribbon, I found the easiest way to create the bow was to tie it with the bunny ear’s method. Wired ribbon is the best ribbon to use when creating bows because it really keeps its shape. You can make the bow as big or as little as you’d like. I created a medium-sized bow for my wreath, but made a long tail, the length of the rest of the umbrella, for it. Trim the end of the ribbon to whatever length you prefer.
To finish off the ribbon, create a V-shape cut at the ribbon’s ends. I find that the easiest way to create the V-shape cut is to make a vertical cut in the middle of the ribbon’s end, then, cutting from the corner of the ends, make an upward diagonal cut to meet where the top point of your vertical cut ends.
That’s it! Now it’s time to hang up your wreath!
Wasn’t that the easiest wreath ever?! It hardly took any effort but it truly turned out to be the most festive spring wreath ever!
