Decorate a "rain, rain, go away" umbrella with fabric paint

Let's Paint an Umbrella!


They say that April showers bring May flowers.  
So, I updated an old umbrella with some fabric paint.  
Now we'll look cute while staying dry.

Materials Needed to Paint Your Umbrella:



How to Paint your Umbrella!

1.  First, I opened up the umbrella.
2.  Then, I took a piece of chalk and sketched out where the letters were going to go.
3.  Then, I used a paintbrush to paint on the letters using fabric paint.
4.  I let the paint dry according to the directions, but didn't heat set my letters because I was afraid of melting the umbrella.

Ta-da!  What do you think? I think it look pretty adorable.

(Psst- I also worried about the durability of the paint.  Once the paint dried according to instructions, I placed the umbrella in the shower and let it sit under running water for 4 minutes.  I'm not going to lie.  It was super tough waiting to see the results.  Luckily for me, the paint job still looked good.  Hooray!  I feel hopeful that the paint will last.  Check back for an update once we use the umbrella a couple of times.   Cross your fingers!)

    1. Hey there! We used the umbrella a couple of times and the paint lasted just fine. If you want, you could also have them sign the underside. Then the rain won't get to it and your friend can see the names when he/she walks around town.

  5. Flat paints are the best choice for vinyl and aluminum siding that is scratched or dented because it hides imperfections and spatters less when applied. These paints are ideal for low-traffic areas such as formal dining rooms and master bedrooms. painter decorator
