DIY This Polka-Dot Umbrella — Rainy Days, Beware!

Designlovefest was created in 2009 out of Bri Emery's own obsession with type and images. DLF rapidly became a daily read for over forty thousand people, thanks to Bri’s exquisitely curated layouts featuring bright colors and style, mixed with witty typography and a flair for the unexpected.
We could easily waste entire days on Pinterest browsing the endless stream of inspiring DIYs. But the reality is there are just too many projects and too little time. That's where designlovefest comes in. The charmingly curated blog started by Bri Emery captures everything we love about a fun, at-home project: color, quirk, and usability. Basically, we want to make each and every one. So, each week we'll be sharing the blog's easy instructions for projects that are both adorable and useful. Trust — you'll feel like a crafting goddess in no time!
What You'll Need:
• Umbrellas
• Craft paint that is listed for fabric (we like Martha Stewart’s)
• Blue painter’s tape
• Wax paper
• Paint brush
• Circle cutter or circle punch (we like this circle cutter kit)
Designlovefest is a multiple contributor design, fashion, and lifestyle blog headed by Bri Emery. It's a place where type and images totally make out.
