This DIY Aquarium Umbrella Will Make You Wish for Rainy Days
I have always loved rainy days. As a native Californian, I didn’t see them too often, but I relished it whenever I did. My love for rain probably stemmed from elementary school, when during rainy days, we would get to stay in the classroom and do arts and crafts instead of running around outside. Clearly, my passion for crafting (and my dislike for physical activity) stemmed from an early age. Even now, I feel like rainy days are perfect for the best cozy activities, like sipping hot cocoa, reading and DIYing.
This rainy season, add some whimsy to your outfit with this DIY aquarium umbrella. This umbrella is just paper cutouts with Mod Podge. It’s THAT easy! Let’s do it!
Materials + Tools:
- clear bubble umbrella
- Mod Podge
- foam brush
- paper cutouts of fish and coral (I just found mine on the internet)
1. Apply Mod Podge on the front of the printout. Stick to the inside of the umbrella.
2. Apply Mod Podge over the back of the printout and on the inside of the umbrella. Repeat for the other cutouts. Let dry.
Apply Mod Podge on the front of the printout. Stick to the inside of the umbrella. (You can definitely use printouts of other types of fish. Admittedly, my love for Finding Nemo got the best of me on this one.) Apply Mod Podge over the back of the printout and on the inside of the umbrella. Repeat for the other cutouts. Let dry.
I’m singin’ in the rain! Just singin’ in the rain!
Rain, rain, don’t go away!
Bring on the rain!
