This is fun! The perfect Pinterest Picnic! Great ideas and How-To’s from Mashable:
Dress your picnic up and protect it from the elements by constructing a small tent.
DIY Picnic Blanket
No picnic is complete without a picnic blanket. Decorate your own by painting a drop cloth. They are cheap and come with the added bonus of being waterproof.
… Or use a shower curtain instead
If you don’t have time to make your own picnic blanket, throw a shower curtain on the ground first and instantly transform any blanket into the perfect picnic blanket.
DIY Picnic Basket
Make your own picnic basket out of these recyclable materials.
Add a soundtrack
Spice up your picnic by bringing along some music. Place your smartphone inside a glass or ceramic container and hit play. The shape of the container amplifies the sound, acting as a DIY speaker.
Natural Ant Repellant
Don’t let creepy crawlers spoil your outdoor meal. Use this natural bug repellant to keep ants away from your picnic.
Pressed Picnic Sandwiches
Pressed sandwiches pack and transport easily. They also look fancy and taste delicious.
Celery and Peanut Butter
Celery and peanut butter can be quite messy, but pack it inside an empty jar, and it is the perfect picnic snack.
Lunch in a Glass
If you aren’t one for sandwiches, throw a salad in a glass. Cover the glass with plastic wrap and secure with a rubber band or tie. Salads make great impromptu picnic meals.
Don’t let bees or any other flying insects dive-bomb your drink. Shield the top by placing a cupcake liner over top.
Go ahead and relax. This wrought iron stake can hold a wine bottle and two glases so you don’t have to worry about anything tipping over.
DIY Chocolate Covered Strawberries
These chocolate covered strawberries are a hit with Pinterest users. They are made in an ice tray so they are portable and easy to take to any picnic.
Cupcakes in a Jar
Food in a jar is a popular concept on Pinterest and a great way to pack otherwise messy food for a picnic. Add a little sweet to your picnic by making these red velvet cupcakes.
