Hey everyone!
Im back with my biggest stencil project yet, a patio umbrella! This spurred from wanting a fun colorful umbrella but not wanting to pay the high price tag that comes with seasonal decor. I took a $19 plain umbrella from Rite Aid and armed myself with $8 worth of trusty fabric paints and freezer paper. 10 or so hours later I have this!
Comments and questions welcome!



Heres me by it for scale! Im about 5'6''


and an in progress picture

I can see that also as a canvas to hang on a very large wall. Great design and colors. Love it.

That is awesome! I am dying to try decorating on small canvas bags. Your humongous umbrella looks daunting!

Pinned!

I'm always lusting after the very ridiculously expensive patio umbrellas at Pier One and this looks just like it could be sold in stores!!

Example: Ok, so a few more layers of umbrella but it is like $200. FOR AN UMBRELLA!


I don't know why I never thought of this before and thank you for the inspiration. I live in Hawaii so the sun gets pretty harsh. I need to replace the umbrella that we lost in a storm and this is a wonderful idea to make something colorful.
