Cocktail umbrella wreath tutorial

Mmmmmm Pinterest

I have been spending what is probably far more time than is healthy drooling over this site for the last few weeks. It was my friend Carolyn’s birthday last weekend and I had seen on her account that she liked these cocktail umbrella wreaths. Thinking I was the queen of genius, I proceeded to make said cocktail umbrella wreath as a gift for her. I rocked up to her party brandishing an enormous box with the wreath in it and gave it to her. Only then did I discover that she had already blummin’ made one to decorate her house for the party!
BAH! My wreath giving high promptly crashed down in flames.

Should I have asked if she had made herself one already?
Is this new Pinterest etiquette that I am not aware of?
AND…
Surely this situation begs the question (*Carrie Bradshaw voice*) – How many cocktail umbrella wreaths is enough?

I am hoping the answer to that is “At least two”!
Here’s a little tutorial for how I made it:
