  1. These are the single most awesome things I have EVER seen. Love all your DIYs but I think this one tops it!!

  2. This is really one of the BEST diy’s you’ve done!

    It’s really a pretty simple project from a crafting perspective, I know, but these umbrellas are honestly just making me SO happy right now. I love them! 😀 I want to make them right now!

  3. These are pretty darn awesome! Although it never rains in LA so you probably wont need them right? Here in the UK however, we are known for our rainy summers. I need to get umbrella painting quick!

  4. These are so clever. I’m thinking grapefruit would be another fun one to paint too because of the colors, but I love all three of these.

  5. OMG!! I totally agree with the ladies above!! this is one of your top DIY!!!! I absolutely adore them!!!! I think my favorite is the watermelon! thank you so much for sharing! you were right yesterday about a new post that will make up for your absence! ha! :)

  6. Love this! You are a genius!

  7. I mean seriously, your talent is unreal! So cute Kelly!

  8. Love these Kel!

  9. Spettacolo!!!! idea strepitosa!! :)))

  10. so flipping cute!

  11. You. Are. Brilliant. SO CUTE!!!!!!

  12. Woah dude, these are incredibly cool. Nice work with this diy, easy and effective! Now I’m dreaming of watermelon :(

  13. Niesamowite parasole, bardzo smakowite – nie wiedziałam że jest taka farba do tkaniny impregnowanej. Mniam…

  14. love this idea, however, I am sure if I attempted this it would look nowhere near as good :) xo


  15. Wow! It is super impressive that you painted those! I really love them :) Everything you make is such an inspiration of color and joy!

  16. These are the BEST umbrellas I’ve ever seen!! Very fun!!! Love all the beautiful shots too!

  17. Ridiculously amazing! The colors and graphics are so cool and I love the tape stencil for the seeds. So smart :)

  18. That’s such a cute idea! And the photos are beautiful!

  19. What a fun project! I’m definitely pinning this to make the lemon slice one later!

  20. I would consider making one of these since I live in Nebraska and we get quite a few rainy days. My only concern is that the paint doesn’t hold up and cracks easily or it runs off the umbrella on a rainy day. Any testers who can say neither of these hypothetical situations happened?

  21. This might be my favourite DIY you’ve ever done! I love them! Such a great idea!

  22. Awwww!!! This is literally the most amazing and cutest DIY ever!!!!!! I NEED to make one of these cause they are legit adorable! I already have a yellow umbrella so I’ll make the lemon, but the watermelon looks awesome too so I’ll probably buy a red umbrella to make one! And BTW, you’re right, kiwis don’t get enough love…
    Congrats to you for having the best idea ever <3
    Love, Elsa

  23. These are too adorable, I will be putting this on my never ending craft list!

  24. LOVE these umbrellas! They look juicy enough to eat. And they will be sure to brighten up any rainy/stormy day!

    (Just one small question – do we have to seal the paint/make it waterproof for bad weather days, or is the fabric-safe paint good enough? Thank you~ :))

  25. These are genius! They look so fun =)

  26. Love this so much! My basic conclusion is that you need MORE posts with umbrellas! XOXO

  27. I would love to make these! Maybe something exotic line a star fruit would be fun!

  28. They look so so pretty but it’s just for pictures because the rain will delete the paint, people! Think a bit (no hate) :>

  29. Freaking love these. So gorgeous. Winter is nearly over on this side of the world but they would make great gifts over the summer to prepare people for winter! x

  30. These are fabulous! I want to make a whole fruit bowl!!

  31. Like them. Let it rain.


  32. I love so much this your DIY!! I’ve shared on my blog: http://gucki.it/2014/08/26/lets-enjoy-the-rain/
    Super cool job! With these umbrellas I’d almost like the rain… singing:

    Now that it’s raining more than ever
    Know that we’ll still have each other
    You can stand under my umbrella
    You can stand under my umbrella

    (Ella ella, eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella, eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella, eh eh eh)
    Under my umbrella
    (Ella ella, eh eh eh eh,eh eh)

    Autumn is coming, we are ready thanks to Studio DIY!


  33. These are absolutely amazing! I love them!




  34. you could do oranges also, like how you do the lemon ecxept with an orange umbrella

  35. Thank you a lot for sharing, I love them. I posted the link on my facebook page!



  36. Wauw wat zijn ze geweldig. Heel je blog!Ik hebje toegoevegd aan bloglovin: super om je te volgen!!

  37. what a beautiful umbrella’s colors, Now Rain will not be terrible

  38. You are a DIY genius! :) Love this idea so much, so happy and fun! I would go for the lemon one x

  39. These are incredible! So cute! I think the kiwi one is my favourite :) You’re so creative with your DIY projects but this one is one of my favourites!! Might have to make one of these soon, ready for the next rainy day! My only question is how safe is the paint in the rain? Does it run? Or is it okay once the paint sets?

  40. Kelly,

    Do you have a particular brand/color of paint to use for each of the umbrellas? Can you please let me know what brand you used. I’m trying to buy a bunch of umbrellas to do as a craft project with my family next week

  45. […] The rainy days are upon us here in Britain. While browsing pinterest I came across this upcycling idea bringing bright colours to the greyest of days. Fruit slice umbrellas! Huge fun and a quick and easy crafting make. Instructions are available on the website link. Now all I need to do is find myself a brightly coloured umbrella with no pattern on it… http://www.studiodiy.com/2014/07/30/diy-fruit-slice-umbrellas/ […]
