Many of us own one or more umbrella(s) taking up space at the bottom of our closets. Perhaps it's a bit damaged or we simply have too many to use them all.
Have you ever thought of using your old umbrellas for anything other than protecting yourself from the rain? You can make beautiful home or garden decorations with them, among other things.
