With summer starting and Memorial Day around the corner, picnic season is here! I found a few super cute picnic must-haves that you can make and use for the whole summer!
- The Perfect Picnic Blanket
I plan on using my t-shirt quilt for picnics, but I LOVE this watermelon quilt by Suzy Quilts! It’s perfect for summer.
- Basket/ Tote
I love the water bottle tote, which is perfect for beach trips!
Here’s a pattern for an insulated tote, and you can use this all the time for grocery shopping!
- Anything Gingham…
You can’t eat outside without gingham! Fortunately, Amazon lists a bunch of colors and check sizes of gingham…. pick out your favorite!
Here’s my tutorial for napkins! This is a great sustainable option, and you won’t leave any trash around outside 🙂
- Plates and Utensils
So you can’t sew them, but they’re cheap and perfect for outdoor dining.
I love these disposable wooden utensils. Yes, disposable, but better than plastic.
And here are some compostable/disposable wooden plates.
Are you ready for picnic season? What are some of your favorite DIY projects for summer dining?
