Are these good to use for an actual rain umbrella?
Are these water proof like a "normal" umbrella or are these for decoration only?
Yes - they work like regular umbrellas. I decorated mine with permanent markers so the decoration would be waterproof too...

Is it possible to remove the handle or just not use it at all? And what are the dimensions of the rod?
I want to use these for a centerpiece but since I cannot hang them from the ceiling, they would need to be put in vases.
The handle is not removable.

What should I use to decorate these umbrellas?
Should I use markers? If so, what kind of markers...fabric, permanent, etc? Also, do you have stencils that can be used on these for decorating?
Fabric markers work great. If you want darker colors you need to do a few applications. Michaels has these really cool fabric markers that I used. The tips are like paint brushes.

How many "ribs" or "arms" does each umbrella have?
Thinking of making octopuses. ..but looks like from pic it only has 7 "ribs/arms". Thanks!
The umbrella has 8 arms and would be perfect for an octopus. So cute!
