Remember in my June review I said that I was working on an exciting, secret project? Well, today I can reveal that I was creating some diy picnic ideas for the Wayfair website's inspiration page! It was the first time that I had been asked to put together a tutorial for someone else and I loved making the 3 projects and setting up the picnic spread!
The 3 projects are perfect for dressing up a summer picnic or garden party. By making a few diy pieces you can make an event extra special and create a coordinated look to suit any occasion. My pieces are for a summer garden picnic with pretty floral, gingham and spotty patterns but you could adapt these ideas by choosing any colour scheme or theme you like!
You can see the instructions on how to make a decorated bottle caddy, picnic blanket and pinwheel cupcake toppers on their website here.
The lovely people at Wayfair sent me a selection of items to use in the diy projects and to style the picnic. I also created some new designs to use in the projects – patterned papers with strawberries, flowers, gingham and spots which I used on the bottle caddy, pinwheels and straw flags. Here are some of the items I used…
