Do you enjoy eating outdoors in the summer and maybe looking for some fun backyard picnic ideas?
If you have been following along with Dabbling & Decorating then you are already familiar with this first DIY, which is our Outdoor Pallet Coffee Table made out of old pallets, and it’s just perfect for a small backyard picnic table too!

A vintage picnic basket is always so fun and adds a bit of vintage charm for a backyard picnic.
Here in Vermont we always have some kind of candle flames burning to ward off any flying critters that try to eat us or our food!
These little candles I found at our local supermarket, with a lavender oil scent to accompany our porch picnic.
The second DIY that I want to share with you, is a really easy one and something you can also make for your guests or as a hostess gift.
It’s really a lot easier than one would suspect.
A DIY Homemade Bread Board!
I made this one out of scrap wood that we had in our garage. And I used Carrington Coconut Oil to seal it.
I found this simple idea at Tidbits which also provides 10 different free printable patterns, complete with instructions. What a fun DIY for a picnic!!
Simply print and cut out any pattern of your choice, trace it onto the wood, and then cut and sand the board. Then be sure to seal it with food-safe oil. I just loved how easy this was to make.
You could always make a few of these too for kitchen decorations.
Here I added a white linen curtain to add some softness to the picnic on our Outdoor DIY Pallet Table.
I’m so glad you dropped by, and if you are new to my blog, welcome! I hope you enjoyed your visit with us here today at our Home in Vermont.
