        Sure! I printed the words out on the computer in MS Word. I did the first letters as big as I could make them on one sheet then I made the rest of the letters appropriately sized. After printing them out, I lightly taped them in place on the bottom of the parasol. Then I sat in the sun on my kitchen floor in front of my sliding doors and I could easily see right through the parasol and I painted on the top over the design with acrylic paint.

        That's about it! If you have any other questions, please let me know :)

            I got them from Oriental Trading Company - there's 12 for $30. I think now that it was so easy, I'm going to make some for my bridesmaids with their initial on them!

                  Check out the coupon for OT another girl posted 2 days ago, free shipping and $5.00 order $50 or more! I think it expires soon though.
