Outdoor Living

Weight on Tables -- Come your next backyard dinner,these tassels will keep the wind from blowing your tablecloth into the neighbors pool. Wrap strands of colored raffia around a 3 1/2 by 2 inch piece of cardboard several times. Thread a piece through the top;knot. Cut raffia bottom to create fringe.

Place a fishing weight inside bundle toward top;tie a knot below using more raffia. Knot ends to form a loop. Make four tassels total. Sew decorative buttons onto each corner of the tablecloth for hanging

Rubber Band ID -- a guest wineglass won' end up in the wrong hands when one of these brightly colored name tags identifies it. Use a permanent marker to write the name of the guest on a wide rubber band after placing it around a glass. Alternatively, you might use the bands as napkin rings that double as place cards
