...is what you have if you live in the wonderful Pacific Northwest.
the day may come when you have sooo many
that you don't know what to do with them.
sometimes they break or bend,
sometimes they turn
and sometimes you just lose them.
I came up with a new idea.
get out your old bumbershoot,
a few greens
and silk flowers,
maybe a birds nest
a funky old 'hippie chick' scarf
and some pins or hot glue.
here you go:
without opening up the umbrella loosen it up by untying the little tie. wrap your funky scarf around the middle and cinch. I used an umbrella that had two tiers and tied the scarf between the two. this leaves several pockets in which to add your adornments.
adding some tulips and other little flowers and using a spot of hot glue to hold in place.
then I added some greenery,
and a little birds nest with eggs,
played around with it for awhile and took it's picture. THEN, I hung it on my yellow front door.
just a little something different for Spring.
take care friends,
get your craft on!
