Umbrella Wreath for a Luau

10 Jun

We threw a Luau Birthday party for Lily’s 5th and I know I owe you all the pics and details but let’s start out with one simple mood-setting craft: an umbrella wreath.

I was inspired by a few different umbrella wreaths I saw on Pinterest  but I didn’t follow any specific tutorials. I started out with a box of paper umbrellas from Oriental Trading, a styrofoam wreath, some glue, some craft paint and a brush.

I painted the wreath in case you could see it through the umbrellas. (You could certainly skip this step. As long as the umbrellas are placed close enough together, you won’t see the styrofoam.)

Before I added the umbrellas, I had to snip off about half of the toothpick so they wouldn’t stick out too much. Each tip got a touch of glue before it went in.

Next I started placing the umbrellas around the edge with a little overlap.

Another line on the inside and it was starting to get filled in.

The finished wreath!

I hung it on the front door and bought a couple hibiscus plants to create the tropical theme. And, of course, the birthday girl had to give out hula lessons!
