Don’t you just love Spring time? I love it. I can’t decide if Spring or Fall is my favorite, I think it’s a tie. I do know that each year when both seasons come around, I enjoy them. I take full advantage of all they have to offer. 😉 Anyway, right now I’m enjoying Spring. When we moved into our home back in November, I didn’t have any idea that there were tulip bulbs in the ground, and a few weeks ago, my sister pointed out to me that they were sprouting. I was SO excited! Tulips are one of my favorites. I even bought some to plant at our last house, but never got them planted. Anyway, now that you know some of the reasons I like springtime, I’ll get to this Umbrella Door Hang. I’m sure that’s what you’re here to see anyhow. 🙂

Umbrella Door Hang Supplies:
- Wooden Umbrella (I got mine from The Wood Connection last year)
- Spring themed paper
- White paint
- Paint brush
- Wood glue
After lightly sanding the edges of all the pieces, I traced the wood onto the back of my papers.
Then I cut out all the pieces I’d traced.
Then I painted all the edges of the wood pieces white. For the handle, I painted all the sides.
To glue the paper on, I put some wood glue on the wood. I used a paint brush to spread the glue on the wood evenly.
Then I placed the paper on the wood, and used a vinyl squeegee to smooth it out.
I glued the green paper down on the sides of the umbrella the same way. Then I glued the center piece to the top of the umbrella.
Next, I glued the handle on. I used a clamp to hold it in place to dry.
I grabbed some orange chevron ribbon and tied it on the handle. I attached a metal hanger on the back of the umbrella as well.
I grabbed some green ribbon, and tied it for the hanger. I couldn’t wait to get it hung up, so I immediately headed out and hung it on the front door.
And that my friends is my new Umbrella Door Hang! Isn’t it so bright and cheery? And let’s not talk about the fact that I need to paint that front door. I’m hoping to get that done sometime this summer, but we’ll see.
So what do you have hanging on your front door for Spring?
