Do you love that little parasol from my gnome outfit? You're not alone! I got so many compliments on it and it was super easy to make. Below I'll show you a bit of the process and how I made it.
I started with a red parasol, made out of a thin canvas kind of material. I had previously weather proofed it, with a water sealant spray. Highly recommend for those situations where you get caught in a light rain. The parasols are lightweight and really only made for sun, but this helped a lot.
Then I added spots with white acrylic paint! Easy peasy. I would say the hardest parts are:
- Having enough space to have the parasol open while painting
- Figuring out where to put the dots and at what size
Overall though it turned out great! A little bit of organic feel with the dot placement goes a long way. It really made me feel like a tiny gnome under that mushroom.
