Grab your blanketbasket, and a bottle of rosé (or two), because it’s National Picnic Month, y’all! We’ve got 11 cute and colorful DIYs in the queue that’ll have you inspired and ready to picnic like a pro before the season’s over. So gather the gals, pick out a park spot, and get ready to have your most ‘gram-worthy outdoor experience yet — no filters needed!

1. DIY Color-Block Food Domes: Keep those ants marching AWAY from your food with DIY color-block food domes. Bug-issues aside, we’d be okay packing these covers based on looks alone. (via Sugar & Cloth)

2. DIY Wooden Crate Picnic Basket: No basket? No problem! A crate will do the same job. With a couple coats of bright paint, it’ll quickly become your favorite carryall. (via Damask Love)

3. Make a Picnic-Friendly Pasta SaladMake the main event — the food — fit well with your occasion. A colorful pasta salad like this one tastes delish AND transports well to your fave al fresco spot. (via Brit + Co)

4. Make a Floral Picnic Basket: Transform an ordinary wicker basket into something a little more magical. We’re obsessed with this floral option that makes your accessory more glam with the help of basic craftin’ supplies. (via A Beautiful Mess)

5. DIY Paint-Dipped Flatware: Forget the store-bought plastic silverware. These hand-dipped pieces are way prettier, and much better for the environment too! (via Lovely Indeed)

6. Pack a Pimm’s Cup: A packed dinner wouldn’t be complete without a cocktail to complement it. Light, refreshing, and sweet, a Pimm’s Cup is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. (via Brit + Co)

7. DIY Giant Lawn Game: When the feast dies down, bring action to the party with portable yard games. Want to add some competition? Winner takes the lightest load home! (via Studio DIY!)

8. DIY Acrylic Trays: Take a tray with you to keep mealtime spill-free. We’re lovin’ the summery take on this basic acrylic option, especially when it’s decked out in a picnic-approved theme. (via Damask Love)

9. Make Picnic Blankets Out of Drop Cloths: Festive, fun, and fruity — however you describe them, these drop-cloths-turned-picnic-blankets will pair well with your next day at the park. (via Brit + Co)

10. DIY Picnic Plates: These checkered plates couldn’t be more picnic-y if they tried. And since they are BPA-free, food-safe, and dishwasher-safe, you might as well make a few. (via Delineate Your Dwelling)

11. DIY Tassel Picnic Blanket: If you already have a blanket but it needs a little spicing up, pull out your best yarns to add a tasseled touch. (via Gold Standard Workshop)
