Make your own Tie-Dye Umbrellas

Tie dye is very versatile. Not only is it great on 100% natural fibers, but it also works great on paper!  We tried our Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye out on some simple paper umbrellas made from rice paper we ordered online.  The colors turned out so vibrant and they popped at our tie dye baby shower. Here's the simple steps for making these pretty parasols!

What you need:  
– one bottle of Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye mixed up in plastic tub
– large paintbrush from hardware store
– 1 32" paper parasol (you can find these at Luna Bazaar online)
Lay out your parasol on a table. It's best if you can fit the handle down in a groove so that the parasol is as flat as it possibly can be.
 Dip your paintbrush in the dye mixture. Starting from bottom, sweep your bristles up about 4 to 5 inches.  This will allow your dye to create the dry brush look shown.
Continue sweeping around your umbrella, making sure to apply an even coat all around.  Let dry completely!
 We placed our parasols on our fruit and drink tables... you can tell, we used lime, turquoise, yellow, and fuchsia Tulip One-Step Tie-Dyes for our color palette.
We also put them up above!
They turned out so colorful and fun!
Here's our guests of honor Michelle and Lauren in front of the parasols and our diaper cake on display!

These parasols not only are perfect for a shower, they'd be perfect for a wedding too!

Check back all this week as we share more fun projects from our Tulip® Tie Dye Baby Shower!
