DIY Burlap Placemats for Thanksgiving Supplies needed:
- Burlap (you will need two of these pieces to get 4 placemats)
- DecoArt Crafter’s Acrylic in white
- Stencil Brush
DIY Burlap Placemats for Thanksgiving Instructions:
I then pulled away about 3 strings from each side to create a frayed edge. If you are worried about your place mat continuing to fray, you can use fray check all around the edges of your finished product.
Then count in from one edge about 8 strings and start pulling strings out. You can literally just pull a middle string easily.
Pull enough strings so that your ribbon will fit through the burlap. In my case it was around 8 strings.
Start threading through your ribbon. I went 5 strings and then repeated — in and out of my place mat all the way down the burlap.
Now it is time to add why we are all gathered together on Thanksgiving. I spelled “THANKFUL” down the side of each of my place mats with the stencil and white paint.
You could of course add different words to each of your place mats. I loved the thankful sentiment so I kept all four of mine consistent.
After your paint has dried, iron your placemats and they are ready to add to your Thanksgiving table!
I was given supplies and compensated for portions of this post through design teams. All opinions and projects are my own.
