I would be affraid that spray paint would be too heavy for that type of paper.  I would look for solid colors already or maybe tr hand painting.  I have never tried though so you might want to do a test run and see howthe spray paint works.

Spray would work, just be sure you’re 6-10 inches away, and poke them into something sturdy that won’t roll away. If you spray just the umbrellas, they’ll fly all over the place! Though if you can find solid ones it would be much easier, I’d try places like the Oriental Trading Company or other online dealers, there’ve gotta be solid options out there

Here is a source to order individual colors, although they do have bit of a print

Here is a source for pink umbrellas:

I have  also found a tutorial from Martha(of course) to make your own. That way you can use whatever colors you want.

Get one and definitely give it a try with the spraypainting. Or try watercolors/painting it? That may take too long though.

I agree with others that the umbrellas might be a little flimsy to handle the wet-ness of the spray paint. Julies1949 posted some great resources though!
