The weather is finally turning! With spring finally starting here in Ohio we cannot wait to be outside more, especially entertaining out on our deck. We have been busy getting our deck ready and today I’m sharing how to make a tablecloth for your patio. I’m also going to share all about how Giant Eagle is slashing prices and I recently picked up a bunch of food there for our first dinner to break in the new tablecloth.
Making your own tablecloth is super easy and you only need a few supplies.
- vinyl fabric
- pom pom trim
- hot glue gun
- scissors or rotary cutting set
How to Make a Tablecloth for Your Patio
Step 1: Measure your table. To figure out how much fabric you will need take the measurements of your table and then add on how many inches you want it to hang over the sides. My picnic table measures 95 inches X 45 inches. The vinyl that I bought was 54 inches wide so that allowed me 4.5 inches to hang over on two of the sides, so then I added 9 inches onto the length of 95 inches, giving me a cut of fabric that measured 104 inches X 54 inches.
I bought 3 yards of my vinyl fabric and then cut of 4 inches from the length in order to get that 104 inches X 54 inches that I needed. When you get your fabric cut at the store be sure to ask them to roll it around a cardboard tube for you. You don’t want them to fold it because it takes forever for wrinkles to fall out of vinyl and you really shouldn’t iron it. Plus having the cardboard tube is great because you can wrap your table cloth around it when you want to store it.
Step 2: Attach your pom pom trim to the edges going all the way around. You can sew this if you want to (it’s a little more difficult if your tablecloth is really big like mine) or you can use your hot glue gun to attach it.
Step 3: (Optional) If you have an umbrella hole then you will need to cut that out. Lay your tablecloth on top of your table, then from underneath the table trace the circle where your umbrella would come through. Cut it out.
And you’re done! Now you know how to make a tablecloth for your patio and you’re ready to have a backyard barbecue!
But first you’ll need to stock up on some good eats and you’re going to want to check out your local Giant Eagle because they are slashing prices on all sorts of items. Participating Giant Eagle stores in the Akron, Canton, and Cleveland areas are slashing prices on over 5,000 items!On a recent shopping trip to my Giant Eagle I picked up a bunch of food for my family including everything we needed for our first meal out on the patio this season. So many of the items I picked up had their prices slashed! I love the convenience of getting all my barbecue needs in one stop. Prices have been slashed all over in departments such as dairy, pet, grocery, household items, snacks, and cereal. You can fill up your cart without emptying your wallet. There are signs all over the store to show you where all the new price-cuts are and each item is marked with a tag that says “Another Slashed Price”. This is not a sale with an end date… these price cuts are permanent! Be sure to head to your local Giant Eagle to take advantage of these brand new price-cuts!
