BEAUTIFY YOUR BRUNCH
Bored with the same old scene for brunch? Turn your tablescape into a colorful canvas with these painted place mats. Your friends and guests will love the bright pops of color under under their elegant whiteware. Our #12MonthsofMartha blogger Rachel, over at The Crafted Life, shows us how to accomplish this look, step-by-step. If you haven't been over to the Crafted Life, we suggest you go check out Rachel's fun and approachable DIYs.
GET THE SUPPLIES
Here's what you'll need to get started:
- Place mats (Rachel chose these natural-fiber ones from Ikea)
- Martha Stewart Crafts Acrylic Multi-Surface Craft Paint
- Martha Stewart Crafts Stencil Tape
- Martha Stewart Crafts Paint Brush
Then, just tape off the sections you would like to paint and layer on a coat. Make sure to check out her blog for the full project instructions.
MAKE THEM YOUR OWN
Customize your place mats with your favorite colors. You can mix them up by using the stencil tape to create different patterns, too. Or create a set for each season with coordinate colors. The possibilities are endless!
We can wait to see what you create. Make sure to share your versions on social media using #MarthaStewartCrafts and we'll feature our favorite!
