Making Diy Placemats It’s Easy If You Do It The Smart Way
Today I’m sharing a fabulous project by Sibel of Turuncuoda blog, who painted the most beautiful DIY placemats.
These would look pretty great at a barbeque or summer party.
If you didn’t want to paint lots of them you could just create a big charger plate for the centre of your table.

Now it’s over to Sibel to show you how to paint summer placemats:
Making DIY placemats is such a simple process. Especially if you follow the smart tips included below.
Materials You Will Need For DIY Placemats:
- Round wooden placemats ( you can use your old furniture)
- Acrylic paints
- Brush (I recommend using a soft brush)
- Painters tape (try eBay)
Smart Tip #1:
Using painters tape instead of masking tape ensures that no paint gets under the tape and ruins your paint job.
- Take some painters tape and to give the triangle shapes.
- The most important tip is that you should be patient.
- You should wait for every section to dry after painting, you can use a hair dryer to speed this process up.
Smart Tip #2:
If you don’t want triangle shapes, you can always use ring binding protector stickers/hole reinforcements* like the one’s I found on eBay, to create a polka dot pattern all over the place.
Smart Tip #3
Paint a thin coat and then wait for it dry and repeat this until you reach the desired colour saturation.If you paint it with a thick coat, it will look too rough.With the thin layers of paint, you can be sure, this placemat will give your summer party table an amazing look!
