Easiest Spring Decoration Ever!

Easiest Spring Decoration – Make It Today!

Now this is not my creative genius coming to the surface – this is just me seeing something online and saying “I could do that!”  Sometimes I say that, and I end up being dead wrong, but this time I found something super easy, super cute and contagious!!!!  I showed my craft project to my friends and it has spread like wildfire!  So if you don’t want to catch the fever to make the easiest spring decoration ever – don’t read on……

Easiest Spring Decoration
Spring Decoration – Plaid Umbrella

Supplies Needed:

  • Umbrella
  • Artificial flowers
  • Ribbon
  • Wire (optional)

Now there are options, put it all depends on your creativity and budget!  Because I was just “testing” my theory that I could make it, I bought an extremely cheap umbrella (that can be used later as an actual umbrella).  The flowers that I used came from the Dollar Tree.  (I’m sure you could use real flowers, if the decoration is only supposed to be used for a short period of time).  The ribbon I had left over from some craft project (you know what I’m talking about….a closet of “left overs”).  And the wire I used to help hang the creation (since my first umbrella didn’t have a cute hook), came from one of my “junk” drawers.


  1. Prepare you mental creativity. You have it – I promise you!
  2. Gather supplies
  3. Open up the velcro tie around the umbrella, and let the umbrella “fan out” on its side.  Let the spokes fall where they may.
  4. Take the flowers and insert them in the umbrella (trying to insert, or wedge them between the spokes).
  5. Gather the umbrella around the stem area, and use the ribbon to tie around it with a bow.
  6. Add a piece of wire to the back of the umbrella (between the spokes next to the handle) and create a loop (or circle) with the wire.
  7. Rejoice!  You just made the easiest spring decoration ever!  And remember….it’s contagious!
