Outdoor Tablecloth Weights

With summer coming up, I found this great solution for a problem outdoors! Do you have this problem??? Wind blowing your tablecloth all over the place….It gets pretty windy here! I love the tablecloth I have on the outdoor table. The problem is….it blows all over the place. I’ve been thinking of different items I could use to weight the table cloth down. I wanted something that I could remove also, if I have to wash it . I have perhaps too many bins of ‘stuff’. I found some curtain clips. Now I just have to figure out what to add to them for weight. These are some of the options I had:

 

I decided I wanted sparkle! Of course. So I painted the clips with Rustoleum Metallic Spray Paint.

I decided to go with the marbled vase fillers. They have weight and would look pretty with the silver. I used ‘Goop’ to glue them inside the ring. I glued them in,one at a time Tip: Sometimes it’s hard to put the cap back on the glue. I put a bolt in the end instead of the cap. It keeps the glue inside, doesn’t leak, and I don’t have to fuss with the cap.

 

3 of them fit in perfectly! I let dry overnight….In the morning, this is how it looks! Love it! And it keeps the tablecloth where it belongs!

I placed them where the tablecloth lines up with the legs, so it doesn’t bother anyone sitting down.
I just wanted to add….what a nice feeling it was this morning to go outside to feed the birds and not have to hassle straightening out the tablecloth. It worked perfect. You can always add shells if your going for the beach theme.

 

And if you have really super strong winds….. and if you want even more weight, add more marbles (vase fillers) In the picture above you can see there is room for more. So I added three more.right on top…see below..

  1. Those look great! I wonder if I could find some little cow decorations with enough weight. From our back deck, we look out into the cow pasture, so it would be fitting!
    And by the way, I lost a whole bunch of marbles, would any of those be them lol 😲?
