Here's something I recently did with my little niece! I used EZ-EL Wire to line her umbrella and made a little turtle at the handle too. It's a really easy and especially fun project to do, especially if you're making it with a little mischief. 



Picture Tutorial if you're interested Cheesy

Step 1: Start at the Handle
Start the wire near the handle of the umbrella, where the inverter will go, and move up the shaft to the neck. At the neck, tape the EL wire to it by wrapping tape around the shaft and wire.

Step 2: Taping Wire to the Edges

At the end of the spoke, tape the wire across the edge of the umbrella. You can also zip tie the wire to the spoke for added security and strength.

Step 3: Looping around the Edge
Tape EL wire down the next spoke over using the same technique as used in Step 2. At the top of the umbrella, loop the wire around the neck. Then tape the EL wire back up the same spoke towards the edge. Tip: Make sure to leave enough slack in the loop to allow the umbrella to close properly.

Repeat Steps 2-5 for the entire umbrella till all the spokes have EL wire attached.

Haha thanks. Add some squiggly things hanging at the end of the wires and it could be a jellyfish!
