Dollar Store Ruffled Umbrella


Here is my dollar store challenge for this week on CSI Project. I am really loving it now..not so much the night I made it. That's probably because I stayed up ALL night working on it. The final product...a ruffled umbrella!


I had no idea what I was going to do so figured I would just walk around the dollar store and see what I could find. I didn't know the Dollar Tree carried umbrellas but there they were...navy was the only color they had. I really wish they had white or a lighter color but being the dollar store I didn't get a choice.

I chose the umbrella and a light pink tablecover. Both a buck..both from the Dollar Tree. Pretty boring if you ask me.

Start with an umbrella and a tablecover.
Cut up the tablecover, ruffle ruffle ruffle.
Some double stick tape.

Tape, tape, and tape lots more and you get a pretty ruffly umbrella.

It's so much fun to play in the rain. It even held up after getting all wet!

Here is my secret...we had to fake the rain. Like I said...so much fun!

Visit thecsiproject.com

and to the link parties on my sidebar.

Anyone interested in a tutorial? I have it all ready to publish but it is kinda picture heavy. Let me know and I can get it on for ya. Also the skirt tutorial is almost ready...having a little trouble making sure my measurements will be right when it is resized.

That comment in french is a bunch of nasty vile crap, and you should really delete it. It makes me want to vomit, and I don't even speak enough french to actually read it but I caught some words here and there that I know are not something you want on a post with your little daughter. Humans can be such pieces of poo. ...and you can't even report them cuz it was "anonymous"!! Lame! ... Thanks for sharing your project, I may just try it...
