:::{My D.I.Y. "Thank You" Parasol}:::

>> Monday, November 9, 2009

This weekend I could only squeeze in one wedding project and that was the "Thank You" parasol. I knew that I wanted one of these and as always I wanted to try the D.I.Y road before purchasing. It came out GREAT and BEAUTIFUL and just what I wanted but let me just say that it was a labor of love for sure. It took me just about three hours and at times I wanted to throw it across the room, but in the end it was all worth it. I used instructions from a Project Wedding article to do this parasol.


  • 32" Rice Paper Parasol $8.95 (Purchased from Earthbound Trading Company)
  • Deco Art Metallic paint $2.29
  • Paint Brushes $0 (used paint brushes that I had for about 5 years)
  • Stencil's printed in Micrsoft Word $0
  • Pencil $0 (Stole one from my daughter :)
  • Scissors $0 (already had these)
  • Tape (leftover from Christmas)
    Total Cost $11.24
