And why not let others know about it too.
I don’t know about you, but it drives me batty when a sneaky gust of wind messes up a table I’ve spent hours decorating. Instead of relying on plates and cutlery to keep your tablecloth in place, why not make your own, inexpensive weights using things you probably already have in your craft cupboard.
They’re quick and easy to do, and you can customize them to suit your unique decorating style.
Start by cutting your jewelry wire into four 25 cm (10″) pieces. If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you’ll know how much we love using wire in our craft projects. There’s just so much you can do with it.
Thread the wire through the hole in the Bulldog clip and fold it in half.
String an assortment of beads onto the wire. Add as many as you want in whichever order you like. Finish off by adding another pinch clip to the end and twisting and, knotting the wire to secure. Trim any extra bits of wire.
Fill the little buckets with stones, shells, glass pebbles, beads or anything else that’s heavy enough to act as a weight.
Add the one end of the beaded Bulldog clip to the bucket and clip the other end to the edge of your tablecloth.
Now that tablecloth will stay right where it belongs. One the table 😉
How do you keep those sneaky gusts of wind from destroying your beautifully decorated table? I’d love to hear your ideas.
There are so many ways to customize these tablecloth weights:
The possibilities are endless and they make great gifts too. How would you customize them?
