When dining alfresco at our house, I sometimes use a tablecloth on our dining table on the back deck. As we always enjoy the bay breezes the tablecloth always flips up and it begins to become an all-round pain in the neck.
Well, on my travels today I stopped into a Costcutters store. (equivalent to a pound shop in the UK) Just checking it out and not wanting anything in particular I came across these stainless steel heart shaped tablecloth weights. Perfect and four for $3.50!
Came home, covered them in colourful fabric on both sides with my trusty Mod Podge and guess what?...they are fantastic, the tablecloth stays down and you get a pop of colour as they hang around the edges.
They are surprisingly quite heavy and I am sure I will only need one on each corner.... I am hoping that the fabric will fray a little, that's why I have left them as is. Fray away fabric!
Simple, cheap and easy peasy!
