    How long will the poster putty stick? It seems like it would fall off after a few weeks?

  • Ellen

    I would love to do this as I live in an apartment. One question. It seems that you may have used umbrellas in the original instalation for the catalog larger umbrellas. Do you have a source for those?

    Very colorful idea! I’m also interested in how long they will stick. Also, where can I find the posting about the bookcase turned dollhouse on page 15?

    I’m not sure about the putty, we used an adhesive that should last quite a long time.

    The umbrellas can be ordered from

    Hope you all have fun with this project!

    I would love this as a piece of art – how about sticking the umbrella ends directly into foam board and framing it without the glass in place?

  • Jenn Sacchetti

    Love this idea! Any suggestions on how to make the putty stick? Gave it a try and the umbrellas popped right off the wall a few minutes later. Do you keep the umbrellas convex?
