POM POM UMBRELLA DIY
Time Needed: 10 – 20 minutes
*3 yards covered a small rain umbrella. For specific pom trim requirements, measure the outer circumference of your umbrella canopy.
How to add pom pom trim to an umbrella:
Before you start, make sure your pom pom trim is unraveled, and none of the pom poms are tangled. To do so, simply gently unroll the trim. If there are any snags or tangles, simply untwist the poms that are tangled together.
1. Starting at one umbrella end cap, slip the end of the pom pom trim underneath the edge of the umbrella canopy.
2. Place a thin line of hot glue along the inner edge of the umbrella canopy, and gently press the pom pom trim to the hot glue.
3. Continue all the way along the outer edge of the umbrella until you reach the starting end cap. Trim pom pom trim to size, overlapping the beginning trim by 1”.
And you are finished!
