Hi folks. Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I've been a bit under the weather but am feeling much better now.
Today's craft idea is how to make a decorative placemat. But it really shouldn't be used to put your plate of food on. It's really more for a decorative centerpiece look. It's a very simple but creative idea.
One placemat (purchase at discount store)
Silk flowers (for this idea we'll use daisies)
I know this may sound kind of strange but take apart your silk flowers. This can be done by removing the flower from the stem and then removing the bottom from the flower and the flower should slide off. You will probably end up with two separate flowers.
Place a dab of hot glue on your placemat. Then place the flower piece over the glue. Notice that a small dot of glue will come up through the flower piece because of the hole that was created by the manufacturer to put the flower on the stem. Place a round rhinestone on top of the dab of glue.
You now have a flower completed!
Now continue to cover the placemat by following the same instructions.
This placemat would look great in the center of the table with a flower arrangement on top.
Just A Tip: If you are decorating a round table then consider using a round placemat. It just creates a better uniformed look.
