These adorable door wreaths are colorful, affordable, and are the perfect addition to your summer door or next party…
I’ve said this before, and meant it each time…but I keep challenging myself to create the easiest DIY projects ever, and right now, these door wreaths totally top the easy chart.
Even I am impressed with my laziness, guys. Because I’m really not sure if I’ll ever be able to top this one.
You need two supplies, and 10-minutes to complete this summer wreath. And that’s 10-minutes ONLY if you’re drinking a margarita, watching three kids, making dinner, and one of these door wreaths ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Otherwise, this project will probably take you five minutes ⏰, and cost less than $10, ALL IN.

Supplies needed for these Easy Summer Door Wreaths from Cocktail Umbrellas
- cocktail umbrellas– the one I used was 16″ diameter
- foam wreath form– the ones I used had canopies about 6″ across
Here’s a quick video tutorial for the project:
How to Assemble Door Wreaths with Cocktail Umbrellas:
These cocktail umbrella door wreaths are embarrassingly easy to make. But I’ll take easy over hard any day, right? So here are the insanely easy instructions…
1. Stick the cocktail umbrellas into the styrofoam wreath.
Aaaannnnd, that’s it. How’s that for easiest DIY project EVER?! I will give you a couple of tips, just so I feel better about posting something this simple…so indulge me:
Here are a few simple tips to make assembly go smoothly:
- remember that this will hang on a flat surface, so don’t insert umbrellas where they will cross over the side plane of the wreath, otherwise, those umbrellas will get crushed, and your wreath will hang funny.
- these door wreaths are very lightweight. I wouldn’t hang one in an area with a ton of wind…otherwise, you’ll end up with flying cocktail umbrellas. We mounted ours over our outdoor bar and use it mostly for parties. It’s not a wreath you’d hang outside all summer…it just won’t last.
- the cocktail umbrellas I used were really big. The canopies were about 5-6″ across. I think it might work even better with smaller ones if you can find them.
- to make these door wreaths more sturdy, you could hot glue them in place, or use some type of super glue on the ends of the cocktail umbrellas. I didn’t do that, but you certainly could.
