Picnics are a fun staple of summertime activities.  But even the slightest breeze can make things go awry of your tablecloths aren’t weighted down!  While anything heavy will work (my grandmother always uses big rocks), if you’re like me you want something pretty to do the job.  Enter Heidi of Hands Occupied, who turned a few basic dollar store supplies into bright tablecloth weights.  We’re loving the current neon trend, but if it’s not your thing, use any color scheme that suits your fancy!  [how to make neon tablecloth weights]
