I think I stood in Target for about 10 minutes, debating what umbrella to buy. The mod-looking clear vinyl one? No thanks, I like to hide my rainy-day-hair. The super ginormous really expensive one? Nah, I’m sure I’ll lose this one like every other umbrella I’ve ever had. (What is it with umbrellas and sunglasses?)
So I went with the plain ol’ black. Borrrringggg. But with a few polka dots? Bring on the rain!
DIY Polka Dot Umbrella
To jazz up your umbrella you will need:
- Acrylic paint. I used two different colors – a silver and a light blue – but it’s hard to tell in the pictures.
- Circle sponge brush
Dip your brush into the paint and start stamping! I alternated the two colors with each row. My (attempted) pattern was to offset each row of circles from the one below. It’s not perfect but I doubt anyone is going to stare too closely.
And it’s a good thing I finally have an umbrella because we woke up to a tornado warning. Yikes. Hope everyone stays safe!0
