Mail BoxHere is one nifty idea for making a DIY umbrella stand. Take an old mail box, prop it vertically, and add umbrellas. Easy-peasy! If you use a beat up mail box, you will want to sand and repaint it first. You also have a choice to add other decorative elements to the exterior of your mail box umbrella holder.

PipesThe item in the picture is for sale but it looks DIYable, doesn't it? The product above is made of aluminum tubes but I reckon that you can make your version using PVC pipes. Spray paint in any color you like, add a base, and then group together using grosgrain ribbon or rope.
