Mini Paper Umbrella DIY- The Style Sisters
 
So, the other day I needed some paper umbrellas for a fun Cub Scout treat I was going to have the boys make for our den meeting but could not find any while I was out and about.
I was running out of time and decided I could probably whip some up!
I found a few tutorials on the internet and added a few embellishments of my own.
 
 
STEP 1 – First I found the lid of a jar about 2 1/2″ -3″ around and traced around it on the back of some fun colorful scrapbook paper I had laying around

STEP 2– I cut around each circle shape with some fun craft scissors to make a ruffled looking edge.  Then I cut out a little pie shape out of one side.
 
STEP 3– I used hot glue on one side of the pie shape

STEP 4– I attached the glued side over the non glued side to make a small cone shape

You can play with it to make it the shape you want. A low umbrella or a high umbrella..just have fun with it.

I wanted to make sure it had a nice point on the tip

Step 5– Inside I added a dab of hot glue and poked the toothpick through to the other side.

You don’t want the toothpick to come out too far just a little bit.

STEP 6- I had these tiny tiny pom poms leftover from some scrapbooking project that I never did so I added a dab of hot glue to the pom pom and stuck it on there. I think they turned out sooo cute!
 
 
I used them for a dessert called Beach Pudding Cups…recipe on my blog. This little dessert teaches the boys how to make something fun for their family. They totally got into making these! It is a little more creative than making dirt cups 😉

    1. Thank you! They were fun to make and the at is the limit with all kinds of paper patterns to choose from… Wouldn't black and white stripes be cute with a red pom Pom!!

  1. Karin, they are so cute! The itty bitty pom pom is the perfect topper! So much nicer and sturdier than commercial ones and they only have one theme! Thanks.

  2. Those are so cute! What a fun craft, and my kids would go crazy for those. Thanks for sharing at On Display Thursday!!
