DIY White Umbrellas
Great for the price - Wedding
We are having a New Year's Eve wedding in Philadelphia, PA. Nothing says New Years Eve quite like the Mummer's parade. I spray painted these umbrellas gold and am in the process of embellishing them with black sequins (our wedding colors) to make them look similar to the umbrellas used in the parade. We will use these in our reception entrance. The groom's umbrella will say "Just" and the bride's will say "Married" when completed. So far they look great. We can not wait to use them!

Perfect for an outdoor wedding.
I ordered 60 of this white umbrellas for an outdoor wedding. They are the perfect size. We had white chairs lined up and didn't want anything too big that would bump into each other. They are not cheap looking. Very nice.

These umbrellas are made well and are very sturdy. I love that there are no sharp points. I plan on hanging them up for a community baby shower where all donations will go to local moms in need. The theme is "Showers of Blessings". The umbrellas are child size and the perfect size for decorating with. They also look great unpainted.

My daughter enjoyed making one for herself and we then decided to make one for an "add on" birthday gift using her Crayola airbrush and templates. It came out really cute!

I had fabric markers and these.. and it was a fantastic craft and favor for 11 little 4 year olds!!!! :) They are sturdy and safe... only 1 was wonky in my dozen.. it opened too much and forced a "blow out" but.. it was still fun for her to design. Great idea if I do say so myself.. we had a tea party.

I bought these umbrellas for my children and for the price of one in the store I got 6. My children have tested them extensively and so far no breaks or tears. I couldn't be happier. My Daughter loved designing her own umbrella.

After reading the other reviews I thought these would be perfect for what I was looking for. The first set snapped right away when we opened them the first time. Second set had a lot that the metal frames are bent and hard to open and close. Spent and hour super glueing all the plastic coverings on so they would stay on when opened. Only gave them a good review because I haven't been able to find any others for this price but buy extra casue you will need them.

We purchased these for kids to decorate and then use in a dance for a camp show. The first time they were used in rehearsal, many of them broke! The metal just snapped where the spokes connect. I had to tape up at least 6 of the 12 we had purchased. Also, a number of the metal spokes popped out of their protective metal knobs (not so safe!). These popped right back in, but I'm not sure how long they'll last. Hopefully they'll make it through the performance! In the past, we've ordered the paper parasols, and they worked much better (they were out of stock, so we got these).

These "stick style" umbrellas are the perfect size for use in choreography routines for dance recitals or other productions. Being able to decorate them as needed to color coordinate with set and costumes makes them incredibly versatile.
