There's nothing like spending some time outdoors with good friends and family, grilling, tossing around a Frisbee and telling old stories that never seem to get old — that is until your tablecloth flips up, knocking over your brats and landing in the lemonade. Weigh it down with this simple tablecloth modification using fishing weights... don't worry, we'll show you how!

Transforming any tablecloth into one that will hold weighs in each corner is super duper simple. All that's needed is a weight and a small triangle of fabric. You can either sew it onto the back of your tablecloth or use an iron-on product such as fusible webbing, leaving a pocket for the weight to slip right inside.

Your tablecloth will forever stay put and you can be worry-free no matter how high of winds Mother Nature has to throw at you!
