My favorite part of summer is relaxing on the beach or in the park, reading a book, eating finger sandwiches, and stretching out on a comfy blanket to take a nap in the sun (under an umbrella, gotta protect your skin from those UVs). But tragedy struck me this week when I was headed to the beach and realized I had no blanket! I hurried to the closest store and picked up what they advertised as a large blanket. I sauntered off to the beach, ready to enjoy a long day of relaxation, only to discover the beach blanket was only big in length! I was stuck at the beach with slightly longer towel than average. I know, how horrible. So, the first thing I did when I got back to work was make a fabulous picnic blanket!
This DIY is very easy, the perfect way to occupy an hour or so of your time.

That’s it! You’re all done. Now, go enjoy your chic picnic with some avocado toast, a sushi burrito and a mimosa, or a virgin mimosa.
