DIY Gold Scalloped Umbrella

Make rainy season a bit more fun with this cute gold scalloped bubble umbrella. Click through for template.

It’s rainy season here in Florida which means there’s a daily downpour nearly every day around 3 p.m. Lately the storms have been way longer and more frequent so I’ve needed to carry an umbrella with me just about every where I go. After my tiny teal travel umbrella flipped inside out a couple of times I decided it was time for an umbrella update. I’ve always loved the look of bubble umbrellas so I got one and customized it with a little gold adhesive vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo. Because everything looks better with a bit of gold on it, right?

Since I’ve been scallop crazy lately (remember the storage jars and the pencil pouches?) I decided to add a gold scallop trim to a clear bubble umbrella I purchased on Amazon. I just love how it made an already cute bubble umbrella into an oh-so-adorable umbrella!

Cute and functional! This simple DIY project transforms a plain bubble umbrella with some adhesive gold vinyl.

    Your DIYs are brilliant! I live in LA, and it doesn’t rain much here at all – but I simply must try this umbrella DIY! :)
