I’m more of a placemat kind of a girl than a tablecloth one! I think it’s because I really have an aversion to ironing a tablecloth! How about you? Since we use placemats at almost every meal I want them to bring a great element of decor to my tablescape and make it interesting! Today I’m sharing a really fun and OH, SO EASY no-sew project…Chalkboard Placemats! Even if you are not a crafter YOU CAN DO THIS!
I’m so happy to be part of MAY’S NO-SEW SHOWCASE!!!
A big welcome to Jennifer from TOWN AND COUNTRY LIVING and Christy from OUR SOUTHERN HOME who are our newest memebers! Make sure to visit all the creative bloggers and their projects at the end of my post!
I made 8 placemats in just over 1 hour! If you can cut on a straight line then you CAN make these placemats!!!
Now, pay attention because if you blink you might just miss how to make these!
1. I started with a burlap chalkboard table runner. I got my table runner at Walmart.
2. Measure the burlap to the length you want to make a placemat. I made my placemats 20 inches long.
3. Fringe the short ends.
Just make sure to write a FUN note on each one!!!
I roll these placemats up and use them for when we eat al fresco… which is most nights from now until frost!
I hope you will visit the rest of the NO-SEW group and see all the creative things they are posting today!!!
