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''

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