Diy Stenciled Picnic Waterproof Blanket


Diy Stenciled Picnic Waterproof Blanket

 I love picnics and even better I love creating a picnic to enjoy the music with! So my love for outdoors and music inspired me to create this decorative diy stenciled picnic waterproof blanket perfect for all my outings and it can even be used on a table too. To create this large picnic blanket I used a large painting drop cloth made from canvas that I had laying around the house. This waterproof outdoor blanket can be used on the all different surfaces likes the beach, grass and even a table. The best place I love using an it is at a music concert.



  • 1 Quart of yellow rustoleum paint
  • 1 Large stencil
  • 1 Stencil roller
  • Painter’s tape
  • Painter’s tray
  • Old canvas drop cloth

Step 1

  1. Roll out the canvas drop cloth over a large table. (6ft by 9ft). Tape the stencil on the drop cloth using painter tape. I used an old stencil from cutting edge stencil called  Zamira Allover Stencil


Step 2

With a stencil roller dip it into the paint and then pat the roller on paper towel. Make sure before you roll it over the stencil it’s not dripping with paint. Very important it does not bleed into the stencil.


Step 3

With roller go over the entire stencil until its completely covered. Let dry in between stenciling. Repeat this step until all the drop cloth is completely covered with the stencil design. Let dry for 24 hours before using outside.



Decorating the large waterproof picnic blanket using large pillows, melamine plates and large green plants or flowers to create a pretty picnic party.

    Don’t you love drop cloths! They are cheep and versatile! I usually make tote bags out of them and sell them at the craft table at the office. I see a lot of folks using them for bedskirts and curtains too.
    You take ferns and pillows on a picnic?!? How inviting…your lunch guests are certainly spoiled!
    Found you on a link up at stonegableblog..I think I’ll join them next week!

    What a clever idea Maria! I love picnics as well even though I haven’t got to go on one in quite awhile. But this way you can even go on one even if the ground is still a little damp with no worries of get wet when sitting down. Love the idea of using as a table cloth too, it would be a one of a kind. Love the color and stencil that you used on this one.
