umbrella wreath tutorial

A new month means  new wreath.  I am in the mood for summer so I saw this and thought how much more summery can you get.

What you need
Umbrella sticks (I got mine at a party store in a box of 144)
Lei - or other hanging

Wrap the lei (hanger) around.  I did a quick slip knot to secure mine.

Poke holes in the foam with a small screw driver.  I found if you stick the umbrellas in with a pre poked hole they break

Break your umbrella sticks to random lengths and place in.

continue around until you are happy with it.

Simple and summery...just perfect.
