Jazz up your umbrella with paint

We grew up seeing our parents tote these incredibly boring self-coloured umbrellas; black and blue for the daddies, pink or some similar shade for the moms. As children, we were the luckiest for we got to carry along rainbow coloured umbrellas and raincoats. (Nobody takes a child’s fashion sense seriously, because every child’s fashion sense is terrible.) But, as we grew up, we began gravitating towards the same boring self-coloured options. Well, it’s time we got back some of that childhood spunk! Here’s an easy way to jazz up your umbrella without making it look gaudy. All you need is a self-coloured umbrella, some fabric paint or pens and a quirky design idea!
