DIY burlap placemats

EASY   DIY  Burlap Placemats


Buy the burlap at your local fabric store.
Use a standard size place mat as your template.  


Use a stencil for what ever words you want to use. 
I had a friend cut this with her Cricut. 
(Note- If you are going to be doing several place mats, cut more than one stencil...this cardboard one wore out fast)

 Black acrylic paint. Use a SPOUNCER, not a 
foam brush.

I used the end of a paint brush for my period. 

Use some Aleene's Stop Fraying for the 
edges of the burlap.
