A Homemade Gift Idea That Turns A Plain Umbrella Into A Very Unique Accessory (PHOTO)

Better yet, you can make it yourself.

Everyone needs an umbrella. But just because they're meant to protect us on cold and dreary days doesn't mean they can't be bold and stylish too. And what better homemade gift idea than something that will help them look fly while also protecting their freshly styled hair?

If you're still scrambling to pull together a few last-minute presents, this striped umbrella from What I Wore is the perfect find. All you need is an umbrella, some paint and a few other small things. Just be sure to use fabric paint so that the umbrella doesn't become a runny mess as soon as it starts to rain!
