diy {C-clamp tablecloth holders}

One of my favorite places to sit is under our sycamore at the picnic table. I’m always wanting a cute tablecloth on it, but there is a consistent breeze in our backyard that always blows them off. I’ve tried several different clamps made for holding down tablecloths outside, but none have been hearty enough for our wind. When I was setting up for Little One’s birthday party, the sheets and tablecloths kept blowing off. Chris was headed to the hardware store, so I asked him to pick up some C-clamps. Problem solved. Tablecloths stayed put.

Nothing fancy…just a little spray paint on the clamps.

Be sure to roll the clamps down to get all the thread covered in paint. My original idea was just to leave them green.

But they seemed too beefy and masculine. So I wrapped them in scrap fabric. Now, I can keep tablecloths on the picnic table – which makes me very happy.

Totally girly…and quite practical.
