Last week I shared a super simple DIY Fibre Wall Hanging over at Style Me Pretty! Today, I’m back with yet another really inexpensive and EASY way to achieve this decor trend in your home using placemats….yes, you heard you me…placemats!
Placemats (I found mine at Target)
Hot glue gun
Spare glue sticks
1. Begin by folding each placemat in half (tip: you will need to choose placemats with tassels) 2. Hot glue the two folded sides together 3. Press firmly until hot glue is dry and continue until all placemats are glued in half 4. Begin stacking one placemat on top of the other in a pattern of your choosing – hot glue accordingly 5. Measure your dowel width and hot glue the sides of the very top placemat about an inch toward the center on each side. This will be where your dowel slides in and voila! Hang and enjoy.
This is truly the easiest DIY! You have so many fun colors and patterns of placemats to choose from! Best part is, his project only cost about $13!
I love the fresh pop of color on the walls – perfect for summer and to bring a more vibrant palette to our living room! So there you have it, another DIY to help you get on trend and save you a little extra cash. I am still hoping to learn how to weave, but until then, this will do just fine!
