The summer months may be coming to an end but it’s not too late to make the most of the warm weather. Why not head outside for a picnic! Here is a list of our top 5 DIY essentials to ensure you have the perfect picnic.
No picnic is complete without a picnic basket, so why not have a go at upcycling your own! Add some colourful material of your choice to line the wicker basket. You can also add pockets to keep everything in place. If you want to be one step ahead, why not attach the material using a hook and loop fastener giving you flexibility to change the colours and design for summers to come! Don’t forget, you can decorate the outside to add that extra personalized touch too.
Create the perfect setting for your picnic with a comfy blanket. This can be made using any soft fabric using your preferred colors and designs. There are a range of quilting dies available at Sizzix that are perfect for this make!
Personalized Drinking Glasses
All that picnic fun is thirsty work so what better way to cool down than a nice refreshing drink out of your own unique glass. And what’s even better is that they are super easy to make! We think our Summer Fruit Thinlits would be the perfect colourful decoration and can be used with stencilling techniques.
Add even more colour to your picnic by creating your own area in a garden or park and decorating the trees, fences or shrubbery around with your own handmade bunting.
