Front door decoration with umbrella, flowers and spring decorations. Could prolly do this seasonally.
umbrella flowers for front door of a Mary Poppins party. An umbrella is a subliminal way to conjure up spring and April showers. Better Homes and Gardens says: “If using real flowers, create a simple vase with water in a plastic resealable bag. Secure at the base of the flower stem with a rubber band.”

Perfect Modern Door Wreath/Umbrella ? MidwestLiving.com I love this fresh idea for your front door instead of the traditional spring wreath. While these look like real tulips, that wouldn’t be practical and it’s so easy to bend the stems of silk tulips to create this free flowing design. I’d use a child sized umbrella, fill the umbrella folds with moss, quilt batting or something soft and then glue in the little eggs and fill with flowers. Who’s going to try this one?

Probably one of the most beautiful ornament wreaths I've seen. While some glue the ornaments "and some garland" to a foam ring, others use a coat hanger or some sort of sturdy wire on which the ornaments are threaded, I prefer the former foam wreath method. I think the foam wreath creates a much sturdier wreath and the tops of the ornaments show and I like that. Check here for instructions for making them: <a href='http://www.bhg.com/christmas/crafts/christmas-ornaments-wreath/' target='_...

Make a pretty holiday wreath
The sumptuous look of this gleaming wreath belies its simple nature – a handful of eye-catching ornaments are simply set in a background of inexpensive tree balls, all attached to a foam base. Easy but elegant, this perennial performer will never wilt or drop needles on the carpet.

• Cylindrical Styrofoam wreath base, 14-in in diameter, 2-in thick
• Approx seventy-five 2-in diameter ball ornaments
• Approx thirty 1-in diameter ball ornaments
• Approx 20 vintage ornaments (such as 2- to 2-1/2-in diameter glittery, mirrored or painted balls, or odd-shaped ornaments and decorations such as angels, birds or beasts)
• Loose glass beads recycled from tree garlands or costume jewelry (optional)
• 1.00 m wire-edged satin ribbon, 2-in wide
• Glue gun
1. Fold ribbon in half so ends are even, forming loop. From back of base, thread loop through wreath, then slide ends through loop and tighten at top; secure loop to base with dabs of glue. Tie ends in bow to make hanging loop.
2. Working counterclockwise from top and leaving spaces to accommodate vintage ornaments, glue 2-in balls all over sides then front of base (glue balls to each other, as well as to base, to secure); arrange vintage ornaments as desired, then glue on. Glue 1-in balls (and, if desired, beads) into spaces in between.
3. Trim ribbon ends, then shape bow loops and ends as desired.
• Before gluing ornaments around sides, place small pieces cut from corrugated cardboard or clean Styrofoam meat trays under ornaments, to position balls slightly forward of base back and prevent breakage when the wreath is hung against a hard surface.
• Save this wreath for indoor use only, and avoid hanging it on a door that is constantly opened and shut.
