DIY Painted Flower Umbrella

DIY Painted Flower Umbrella inspired by the Studio DIY Fruit Slice Umbrellas #troopstudiodiy

DIY Painted Flower Umbrella –

I had so much fun making this DIY painted umbrella this past weekend. It is inspired by these adorable Fruit Slice Umbrellas from Studio DIY (photo by Jeff Mindell). Fruit slices are really trending right now and this was super simple to make by following Studio DIY’s instructions.

I have this little problem though. I have to give everything my own twist and this umbrella idea was no different. I already had several black umbrellas hanging around my house that were just begging for some personality.

There were only a few supplies needed for the project – umbrella, white fabric paint, paint brush, white permanent paint pen and ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape.

I followed the instructions for the lemon up to step number (5).

For step number (6), I made a curly bracket ” { ” or brace shape to make a flower petal, and filled it in with paint. At step number (7), I used a permanent paint pen to make the stamens. I skipped step number (8).

This is such a fun and cute update to a plain umbrella! I made it just in time for two days of rain too. Yay!

Thank you to ScotchBlue™  for providing the painter’s tape.
