DIY: Oilcoth Placemats

Since the grass is green, the weather warm, and I recently broke out my bikini, Spring picnics in the park are constantly on my mind these days. PartySugar has me covered with a delicious Spring picnic menu to fill my belly between rounds of Frisbee and catch, and I came across a wonderful DIY for cheerful placemats to go along with her all-American apple pie bar and fried chicken recipes. The no-sew DIY is just too cute to resist, and easy as apple pie bars, so I had to share.

Supplies:

To learn the steps,

Here's how, from Make Grow Gather:

  1. Cut the oil cloth to 15-x-12-inch rectangles (or whatever size you'd like).
  2. Cut the grosgrain to 18-inch lengths per rectangle.
  3. Trim the edges of the placemats with the pinking shears.
  4. Halfway down either the left or right edge of each placemat, make a small incision with the craft knife (about the width of your ribbon).
  5. Thread the ribbon through the incision that you just made.
  6. With the placemat pattern side down, lay down your napkin and silverware (or plasticware) on top of it, and roll them up.
  7. Then, wrap the ribbon around the roll a few times and tie a bow. Toss them in a your picnic basket and you're good to go!

Love the bright pop of colors. The table setting is cute too. Lately I've been taking the time to be more creative with my dinner and weekend meals. I guess I'm discovering the quiet joy of the artful table.
