diy roundup . picnic lovely



I have a little obsession with picnics. We have some gorgeous wineries around here that are just perfect for having a little tasting and then strolling the grounds with a well-stocked basket. I've rounded up some of my favorite picnic-related tutorials for you to get in the same spirit!

Polka Dot Prints gives you a full PDF tutorial with really detailed instructions for these sweet little food pouches. These would be wonderful for favor bags at a wedding, too!!!

Martha and I are totally on the rocks right now (a watermelon bombe story for another day), but I've still gotta give the 'ole girl her due for yet another quick, easy, and sweet tutorial to brighten your summery picnic!

Besides the precious pictures included in the tutorial, this one's ingenious because the picnic blanket folds into its own little self-contained tote!


This would make yet another adorable idea for a wedding or party - little picnics-in-a-can!!!

Fun and Functional

This tutorial contains incredibly detailed photo instruction to make this neat variation on your typical picnic table. Here's wishing I had the outdoor space!!!


This one has me ready to start searching for the perfect basket to turn into a sweet little fabric-lined picnic treasure!
