A few months ago my sister sent me an email urging me to check out Country Sampler magazine next time I was out shopping. She said that there was something in there that she was sure that I would love and want to make. Boy was she right! Isn't that Door Umbrella decoration sweet?! Love the color of that door too. I knew I had to make one, so the search was on for an umbrella, with a curved handle. Well wouldn't you just know that finding one of those when you need it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack? Probably because I didn't want to pay full price, so I spent alot of time looking at thrift stores. Couldn't find a single umbrella, so my sister found one for me!
This is my version of the Door Umbrella.
I've got tons of silk flowers, so I gathered all of the Spring-y ones.
And I've got lots of birch branches, so that saved me alot of money too.
All I had to buy was the nest at Hobby Lobby, and I painted the eggs so that it would look like a robin's nest.
My sister also gave me this umbrella, which is just waiting to be stuffed with a bunch of flowers and hung on the back door!
