Here’s a DIY tablecloth for July 4th that is so easy that really everyone, from gardeners to art and craft enthusiasts, can do it. Maybe the best of all? Fortunately, he is underestimated, which means that he can have a life long after the fireworks have ended.
You don’t need any tools (just a few new pencils, a box, some fabric and some paint) to make this DIY tablecloth inspired by blueberries. Why blueberries? Aside from the apple, is there a more American fruit? Besides, “July is the best time for this seasonal fruit. Why not give him the 15 minutes of celebrity he deserves? Says David Stark, our go-to expert on event design and the brain behind this smart project.
Below are the three-step instructions for creating this extremely easy DIY. Note: Although David and his team chose to make a tablecloth, you can just as easily make doilies, a picnic blanket or a butcher’s rug using the same method.
