How to Make a Spring Front Door Wreath

Step 1.

Start by spray painting the umbrella on a piece of cardboard in a well-ventilated area.

I used a pretty rose gold copper color with a built-in primer. This will allow the napkins that I will be adding to stand out a bit more.

Step 2.

Be sure to spray paint the top and inside of the umbrella so it looks more finished. I added a gold brass color here for more interest.

I ended with a few pops of black spray paint to cover the handle and edges.

Step 3.

Create a template of the umbrella sections using one of the napkins and a rotary cutter tool.

Step 4.

 
Use a chip brush to add mod podge to each section of the umbrella. It’s best to work in one section at a time as the mod podge dries quickly.

Step 5

Place the cut napkin onto the mod podge area of the umbrella.

QUICK TIP: Use a plastic baggie over your hand to easily smooth out any wrinkles. This will also help avoid any tearing of the napkin.

Step 6

Continue to add each section of mod podge and decorative napkins and trim off any excess with your rotary cutter.

Step 7.

Add a bit of gold wax to the metal of the umbrella, including the handle. This gives it a nice bit of dimension and texture.

Just use your fingertip to spread the gold paste onto the umbrella. You can immediately see a difference. It really makes the area you use it on pop!

Step 8.

To give even more dimension to the napkins, I added some gold wax and a few white paint accents to areas of the wreath as well. This makes it look more aged.

Step 9.

To protect your front door wreath from the elements, be sure to give it a couple of light coats of clear spray adhesive.

Step 10.

Add a bunch of complimentary spring flowers into the umbrella and prepare to be wowed!

This spring wreath is ready for hanging. Look how pretty it looks on my front door:
