During the warm summer months meals are often enjoyed outdoors, so it is no surprise that July has been deemed National Picnic Month. Picnics are typically casual affairs enjoyed outdoors with family, friends or even an intimate occasion for two. Planning a picnic? You’ll want to pack a bountiful picnic basket and a blanket to enjoy the simple pleasure of dining outdoors.
With this simple DIY project you can make your summer picnics memorable with your own one-of-a-kind picnic blanket and a delicious and bountiful basket. Inspired by this blanket from Twig & Thistle I decided to create my own custom picnic blanket for a romantic date.
What you’ll need to:
- 1 drop cloth (available in the paint section at home improvement stores)
- 1 small container of paint in desired color
- 1 stencil or 1 roll of 2 inch ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to create your own pattern
- 1 small paint roller
