I love those disposable plastic table cloths for birthday parties and summer BBQs, but they are pretty plain and annoying in the wind. I decided to make some Flower Table Cloth Weights to keep the table cloth in place and also add a bit of flair. It is so easy to make your own and they work really well!
Clips with a hole in the top
*all my supplies were purchased at Dollar Tree. I know big surprise. 😉
Since I bought stems of white daisies at the dollar store, they were kinda sparse. I pulled them apart and combined the petals of two flowers to make them look nice and full.
Before putting the green back on again, I added some glue to the stem to make them stay together better.
I made 8 flower table cloth weights which used 8 clips and 16 flowers. You could make 10 weights with 2 packs of clips and 3 bunches of flowers ($5).

These are fantastic! I’ll have to look for the supplies the next time I go to the dollar store. Every time we eat outside I always lament that I don’t have something to weigh the table cloth down, but then I forget about it…until the next time I need to use a table cloth outside. Now I’m motivated to remember!
You are literally a crafty goddess. And… I could actually do that craft… well probably. Okay I would likely burn myself on the hot glue… but still.

Great idea!Thanks for sharing! So cute and fabulous!
Duhh! What a good Idea! Why didn’t I think of that? Do you know how many times I wished I had some and didn’t know where to get them!?!
I love this.
I bought those placemats, and after a couple nights of using them, they were ready for a wash. Well, FYI even if the tag says “Machine Wash. Tumble Dry Low” it is sooo untrue. Mine ended up all washed out, and skewed. UGH! There goes those pretty placemats that I was so excited about!
