Nothing screams “summer” quite like those cute cocktail umbrellas! That’s why before you pull out your swimsuit and inflate the beach balls, you’ve got to make this cocktail umbrella craft wreath to set the mood. This wreath is super easy to make and would look great on any door to welcome your guests. Just add some watermelon, flip flops, and popsicles and you’re all set for summer!
Supplies needed to make your own Cocktail Umbrella Craft Wreath:
- Colorful Party Umbrellas
- Fuchsia Pink Crepe Paper Roll
- Paper Mache Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Blue Burlap Ribbon
- Awl (or any other sharp object)
To begin, take the pink streamer and begin wrapping it around the wreath. You may want to secure the end with a bit of hot glue at the beginning. Keep the shape of the wreath by pulling slightly on the crepe paper over the edges. Don’t worry if the paper rips, you can just add another strip and continue on your way!
Once the entire wreath has been covered, apply a bit of hot glue to the back to secure the end.
Flip the wreath over and grab your awl (or other sharp tool) to begin making the umbrella holes. Make sure the piercing object is at least as thick as the umbrella toothpick or it’ll be difficult to pierce.
Carefully open one of the umbrellas and push into the previously made opening.
Continue making the holes and inserting the umbrellas until you have the entire wreath covered.
Flip the wreath over and apply hot glue to the base of each umbrella. Use a pair of sharp scissors to carefully cut off the excess toothpick.
Optional, add a burlap ribbon and bow to the top of the wreath.
Your adorable cocktail umbrella craft wreath is ready to be hung!
Hope you enjoy making this easy cocktail umbrella craft and have a wonderful summer!
