{rock it yourself} an umbrella for rainy days

Who said giving cash to someone had to be boring?! Here’s a fun little project for you guys today: a fun little umbrella that you painted yourself, and when your friend opens it – POP, some cash falls down from it. An umbrella that will cover any type of rainy day, if you will :) 

And let me tell you, it’s super easy to do! All you really need is a white umbrella (the paint will show better, but you could try on another color), some fabric paint, some twine + paper clips….oh, well, and a little cash too 😉 Paint your design – I chose to paint rain drops, pretty easy. When it is dry, attach some strings to a few paper clips, then to the umbrella. Try to keep the strings on the shorter side, less chance they will get tangled. Close your umbrella, attach a sweet little note…..et voila!
