I like the pink the umbrella

That's what the cute, little Girl Scout said yesterday when she delivered
my bounty of GS cookies!

I've had this picture forever
in my idea folder: Things to Make

It's from Midwest Living ~
here's their link

I found the green Totes umbrella at Target

The pink tulips & ribbon are from Michaels.

My first attempt, I stuffed the 3 front sleeves of the umbrella with
tissue paper - however, it looked like a puffy down jacket.

So then I made 3 cones out of brown paper and
slid them in and it worked out great!

I got these two green "orbs" from Hobby Lobby,
they're with Spring Garden items.

They fit perfectly on top of the cones

Added the tulips, hot glued the nest and eggs - it was easy!

I'm so thrilled with this, and I like the pink flowers too!

We all can use a little Spring these days!

 Now, I really want to paint our front door yellow!

 Happy Leap Day!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is so cute I have to pin it! The spontaneous compliment from a little girl is the best because there is nothing contrived about it. I have a little white parasol that may work for this. ~ Maureen
