Spruce up your outdoor Umbrella!

A few posts ago (HERE) I posted about some great fabric flag banners I found at Target.  Since then I have borrowed my friend Kris' idea and turned my faded patio umbrella into a festive umbrella! I first sprayed them with PYM II to protect and seal them from fading then I used a regular stapler and stapled them onto my umbrella.  This picture shows just one strand of flags, but to finish the entire umbrella it took 3 1/2 strands of flags.

Is that not cute as can be!?!

  1. They look really cute! Nice contrast to the underside of the umbrella. I didn't spray mine with PYM so I bet mine will be faded to nothing by the end of summer.

  2. What a great idea! They look so festive. Thanks, Aileen.
