Get Your Craft On | Cute as a Button Umbrellas

How to Make Your Own
Personalized Umbrellas
How much would your kids LOVE these?!!!

I am making these as favors for Bugger N's birthday party. They are so easy and cute. I just had to share! 

First, I bought white children's size umbrellas
I printed the letters out that I wanted to use (size 350, Times Roman font).   

 Then used a pencil to trace the letter on the umbrella...

Sewed on some cute buttons...

Perfect rainy day project!

***Update: See how the umbrella party favors were displayed at the April Showers party***
