Make Your Own Patio Umbrellas

If you like to sew, this is one tip you might want to try: I save worn-out beach umbrellas and carefully rip off the cloth from the frame. I save one section to use as a pattern. Buy a package of sun screen/sun block fabric (I get mine from Home Depot) and cut 8 sections from your pattern. Sew together and you have a nice umbrella while you garden in the hot sun! I have several that I put all around my front and backyard.

You are very smart to recycle the patio umbrella frames. Great idea.

Thank you,

While it's a great idea, why don't you include the finishing instructions? Like how do you attach it to the frame?

Is this the Coolaroo fabric? How long have you have it out in the sun, is it durable?
