Decorative Placemats

2

By Goldie

The Holidays are finally here, so I suspect that many of you will be doing a lot of entertaining at home.   Part of being a great host is creating a festive and inviting environment.  Table setting preparation is key, so to help you out I have created a couple of easy DIY placemats that will look great on your holiday table.  Not only are these projects quick and easy they can also be done pretty inexpensively.  I purchased these mats for under a couple of dollars and if you are handy with a sewing machine you can create your own from some colorful fabrics purchased at your local fabric store.

  

  

 

 Faceted Fringe

 

Jacquard Ribbon

 

 

 

 Cord Edge

Sewing is not necessary for these projects.  I used my glue gun to attach all the trims listed above.  M&J Trimming has a wide variety of trims to choose from, so be creative.  We’d love to hear about any of the looks that you’ve designed.

Happy DIY
