13 Picnic Crafts and Recipes for Summer

One of my favorite summer activities is going on picnics with my friends and family. There are lots of outdoor concerts in the summer and we always go early and have a picnic dinner. Warm breezes, wonderful music, and great food. What more could you ask for on a summer evening?

The best thing about picnics are that you can have them anywhere. You can go to a local park, the beach or even your own backyard. There’s something about escaping the indoors and eating in a new place. I’m always looking for creative picnic crafts and recipes that I can use to make a picnic special. Check out these must-have picnic accessories and delicious foods I found to make an amazing picnic.

First off, you need to have a great blanket to have your picnic on. The Corner Blocks Picnic Blanket is a summer weight quilt that has patchwork charm without all the work. If sewing is more your style then the Waterproof Park Blanket is the perfect picnic sewing project. This Complete Picnic Blanket Tote is super convenient because folds up into a handy tote.
Pack your picnic in style with this American Picnic Basket. Just take an plain wicker basket and turn it into a piece of Americana artwork, it’s a great basket for 4th of July festivities! This Picnic Basket Liner has vintage charm and is easy to remove so you can wash it.

Just because it’s a picnic doesn’t mean your plastic utensils have to be boring. Dress up your cutlery with this Wire Wrapped and Beaded Picnic Utensils craft project. Make sure you keep all your utensils and plates in one place with the All-In-One Picnic Tote that makes organizing your basket a breeze. You spent all that time making the food so be sure to protect those sandwiches with these cute Reusable Sandwich Bags. They are so much better for you and the enviroment than plastic baggies.
