Easy No-Sew Fancy and Fun Patio Umbrella DIY!

Posted by Linden Mckenzie on

Summer is almost here and I don't know about you, but being outside with family & friends are some of the best days. I found an gorgeous and fun patio umbrella but it was $500.

That was out of my budget, so here’s how I did it!

Materials Needed

  1. Hot glue gun
  2. White outdoor spray paint (rustoleum high gloss)
  3. Any color umbrella of your choice
  4. White fringe trim (Amazon 8” trim) polyester is best for outdoor use

Next Steps

  • Remove top cap from umbrella (I found this specific umbrella on overstock. The color is “berry” pink)
  • Remove umbrella fabric and set onto a flat surface.
  • Using a hot glue gun or fabric glue, apply fringe to umbrella edge in 12” sections. I like hot glue because it dries quickly. If you use fabric glue, you’ll want to use clothespins to hold the trim to the umbrella fabric while it dries.

Once finished, I sprayed the pole and top cap white!

You can glue a finial to the umbrella top cap for fun and you can also add white piping trim to the umbrella top flap!
