I hope that everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend. My brain is still on vacation and I wanted to do a simple project today. We are lucky that our home has a screened in porch and we tend to eat a lot of meals on the porch in the warmer months. I wanted to create simple DIY placemats that could be used outdoors or indoors.
I stopped by Hobby Lobby and found really cute jute placemats.
With stencils and house-paint I stenciled the words “YUM” and “EAT” on the placemats. It gets the point across. I always keep my favorite house-paint colors in smaller containers for easy access. This is my all time favorite color and I keep it in a Trader Joe’s Hummus container. Super professional.
I like the texture of the jute and these placemats were not expensive. I think the were $3.00 each. I will literally hose them off when they become dirty.
They are not fancy, which is great, because neither are we.
This little easy placemat project took less that 10 minutes. It is also a good letter recognition and easy reading for my kids. They would make nice housewarming gifts. Other words that I thought about using were “CHOW”, “CLT” ( For Charlotte),and “GOOD”.
I hope you enjoyed my easy placemats with stencils.
Thanks for visiting, Carmody
