This is a fun, relatively simple umbrella project that’s great for a rainy day. (Of which there are plenty in Seattle- however, don’t try to use this umbrella in the rain!) Similar to those little paper umbrellas you find in cocktails, these umbrellas open and close! For variety you can use different paper designs and decorate your umbrella however you like. This is a medium-difficulty project that takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Step 1: Materials

Materials:....Posters (or paper), scissors, wooden sticks, glue, duct tape, manilla folders, and pompoms.

Awesome project
great one!
I love you! <br> <br>Ahem, I wanted to say that it is exactly the project that I thought and needed. Thank you thousand of times.
Love the simple mechanics of this umbrella.
That is so cool! I swear, I was wishing just yesterday I had a little paper umbrella to put in my drink! Have you made smaller ones too?
