Spring Forward Easy Umbrella Art

Spring has finally sprung! We were inspired this week to get a head start on Spring decorating. Technically, Winter will be hanging around for a few more weeks, but the weather has started to turn so we’re embracing as much of the warm weather Mother Nature is willing to give. Thinking about Spring makes me think of the rhyme – April showers bring May flowers. And if you’re in a Spring shower, you need an umbrella. Phew, that was a little mind journey, but we got there! This was how a came up with this easy umbrella art piece.

This easy little canvas project sparks a breath of air with bright colours and patterns. We can never stop shouting about the versatility of scrapbook paper, its really one of those must have crat supplies that can be used for so many projects. Making this craft made me happy and I hope it will do the same for you!

What you’ll need:
  • Black paint pen
  • Canvas
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Scissors
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint brushes
  • Acrylic paint

Make an umbrella top template. I free drew mine, but you can also print one – try searching for umbrella clipart. Cut out nine umbrella tops.

Paint the canvas a solid colour that will compliment your umbrellas and let dry.

Modge Podge the umbrella tops in place. Use a thin layer of the glue both under and on top of the paper. Let this dry as well.

Use a paint pen to add handles to the umbrella tops.

All done! I hope this cute little piece brings you joy, happy crafting!
