So yes, it's true, once you join Pinterest it sucks up all your free time and makes you seriously consider doing things you never thought you would do, like spending an entire morning searching for the perfect box of drink umbrellas with which to make a wreath for your front door.
I was inspired by the photo above. After spending $7 on a grapevine wreath at a craft supplies store and $4 on a box of drink umbrellas at my local party store, I was in business. I used a much smaller wreath form than the one pictured above, so I didn't use two different sizes of umbrellas, but I think the effect is still pretty cute. It would be a great addition to an end-of-summer barbeque or cocktail party! And it was as simple as opening up the little umbrellas, poking them through the wreath, and arranging them to my liking. A monkey could do this, you guys, which means SO CAN YOU.
