Spring Door Hanger

I was tired of my Spring wreath and needed a change on my door so I came up with this.

I started with this cone shaped thing I bought at D.I. a few months ago.
It reminded me of an umbrella. Perfect for Spring!

I decided to cover it in burlap. I love the texture it adds.
I wanted the nice edge to show so I glued it down about a half inch away from the edge.

Then slipped the cut edge under the nice edge and glued it down.

Then I tucked the burlap into the cone and glued it down.
I used hot glue to glue all the burlap into place.

There was a hole in the top of the cone so I took a knife and cut through the fabric.

And threaded a ribbon through it so it could be hung on the door.

I added some wadded up tissue paper to the bottom of the cone to hold the flowers where I wanted them.
I love how it turned out. Total cost, $1.

    This turned out great. I’ve seen something similar done with an actual umbrella, but this seems like it would be less finicky. I would love if you shared this with my readers. http://rhapsodyofcacophony.blogspot.ca/2012/05/pin-ed-it-made-it-link-party-0518_17.html

    Too funny, not like funny haha, more like funny ironic, I too have been tired of my wreaths on my front door, and have flowers awaiting a project of some sort to create in its place but haven’t found just the right ‘thingy’ to make. Love your idea, really love it, may have to go in search of a similar item to copy it, kinda sorta 🙂
    Thanks for the post. Love your ideas!
