Upgrade your Outdoor Umbrella with Polka Dots

Polka dots add a fun element to your outdoor umbrella

Add a design element to your solid color outdoor umbrella, this project adds polka dots to this solid colored teal umbrella.


  • Wagner FLEXiO 4000
  • Canvas market umbrella
  • Exterior latex paint in semigloss finish
  • Circle stencil
  • Painter's tape
  • Craft knife
  • Cleanup rag


Create a circle stencil using either a compass, tracing the bottom of a large can, or by printing a template off the internet. Once outlined, cut out the circular stencil with a craft knife.

Spraying Outdoor Umbrella


Place the stencil on an open umbrella panel and secure with painter's tape. We did five randomly-placed dots on each panel of the umbrella.

Spraying polka dot stencil on Umbrella


Pick a color that will complement the umbrella and load the FLEXiO® 4000 with paint. With the sprayer set to low, paint over the stencil moving left to right within the confines of your template. Carefully remove the stencil and repeat, cleaning the stencil with a dry rag when necessary.
