DIY tablecloth weights that won’t get blown around
We need :
– organza pouches
– organza ribbons of different widths in coordinated colors ( for example green and yellow combined with white)
– decorative gem stones (vase fillers)
– decorative clips such as butterflies, flowers …
– a tablecloth

You can add a variety of decorative items such as gems, daisies, butterflies or a vase of flowers.
