How to make a wreath with an umbrella

Everybody knows the saying "April showers bring May flowers," and in this DIY project, these two things are brought together to create an adorable wreath. With sunflowers that match the bright yellow of the umbrella, this wreath dresses up any door in a unique and charming way.
Different than a typical circular wreath, this piece of decor uses its built-in handle to hang from any doorknob so you don't have to damage the doors in your home with nails or hooks. If you want to bring a little color and whimsy to your entryway, check out the instructions and video for this wreath made from an umbrella.
