-painter’s tape

1. Use your painter’s tape to mark out the pattern you’d like to design. Be sure to place a piece of tape in the middle of the place mat to ensure a clean break if you only want to paint half the place mat (as shown here).

    I am impressed at how good the metallic paint looks on fabric! I wouldn't expect a metallic paint to create such a nice finish. My experience with metallic spray paints have all been a bit of a disaster.

    Where is a good placE to purchase white cotton placemats for a reasonable price. All I've found are white placemats for a lot and only 4 in a pack

    What a cute project! I love it so much that I decided to feature it in our roundup of scrap chevron crafts! Have a great day!

    It's a glass plate! It's a beautiful and simple idea you've got, but until I read it I actually thought that you had a painted plate to finish off the design on the painted placemat. :D Which seemed pretty genius actually! Now I have to go look up foodsafe paints for plates.

    Great idea. I'm a big fan of putting your own stamp on things.
