Paper cocktail parasols – available at party supply stores – are fun and festive. I made this simple project by sticking the parasols into a grapevine wreath and in minutes, I had a bright new look. You could also use a foam wreath.
I didn't even need to use glue – the parasols stay in place quite well on their own which makes this a great craft for kids too – no mess.
To cover the wreath completely, overlap the parasols by placing some in deeper than the others. I also used two different sizes for variation.
I used about 40 umbrellas to make this wreath. For a large package of parasols, check out Party City – you can get bag of 144 for $5.00. I was also able to find larger parasols at World Market.
