Saturday Project: Beach Umbrella Stand

Umbrella Stand 1We live near the beach so from May through September we spend much of our weekends enjoying the sand and surf. A beach umbrella is a must-have and we have learned from locals a better way to keep it up in the winds…making your own umbrella stand with a PVC pipe. It is less expensive than commercial stands and works better. Here is how:

Supply List:

  • Umbrella stand 2PVC Pipe with wider diameter than your umbrella poll
  • Hack saw

Simply cut the PVC pipe in half on a an angle. It is that easy!

Umbrella stand 3Push the angle end into the sand and stick your umbrella in it to enjoy shade at the beach.
