Instructions:

1. Click here to download the raindrop template, and print it onto an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of label paper. Cut out the raindrop with a crafts knife and discard it—the remaining paper is your stencil. Repeat three or four times. (The label paper loses stickiness, so you’ll need a few stencils for one umbrella.)

2. Open the umbrella and lay one section flat on an ironing board. Remove the backing from one of the stencils and adhere it to the umbrella.

3. Using a pouncer, fill in the stencil with crafts paint. Remove the stencil while the paint is still wet. Repeat on each section of the umbrella. Let dry.
