"Take an umbrella" means to carry it with you when you go from here to somewhere else.

"Get an umbrella" means you don't have an umbrella here, and you go somewhere to pick it up.

Of course, we often use these words more metaphorically so that "here" and "somewhere else" might be very close to each other.
