The weather is warm and the days are longer, which can only mean one thing … it’s finally summer! There’s nothing worse than spending time indoors when you could be soaking up the sun (just make sure you wear sunscreen). Head out for a picnic this summer and soak up all of the best aspects of summer. You can go for lunch, in the late afternoon or even enjoy the sunset during dinner time. No matter when you head out, you’ll surely create lasting memories, especially when you add a DIY element into your outing. Picnic craft ideas can turn a plain old summer evening into an unforgettable event. Best of all, you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on any of these fun summer crafts – save that for your family’s summer vacation!
Before you head out, take some time to create your own picnic blanket, utensil holders and more. Also, don’t forget that the Fourth of July is just one month away, so be sure to incorporate some red, white and blue into your picnic crafts. Make a beer bottle holder for dad, reusable cloth bags for kids (keep them for school lunches!) and a crochet tote that you can wear all year long. You can even create a theme for your picnic – choose a few portable ladybug crafts to bring on your audience – they can serve as a complement to those Spotted Ladybug Picnic Cups!
