So as Mom's Day creeps up on us so close to Easter, let's look at different gifts to give Mom on her special day! One thing I have on my idea list, is a brunch for Mom. We have to set a pretty table for this right? So I created place mats and napkin rings.
I started with these place mats from the Dollar Tree.
I applied a light coat of matte white spray paint.
I then used my Cricut to cut out various shapes.
I applied them to the place mats.
I have chosen the colors yellow and white for the table scape.
So I painted the mats yellow now.
This is not a good pic of the yellow color, it is much more
muted than it appears here.
Next I used the sander an roughed up the
place mats some.
I then used some white dotted material to
edge the pink. Pink was not part of the plan, ya know?
I used Heat and Bond to apply this to the mats.
Here you can see the sanding effect and a better look
at the actual yellow color.
Next I cut strips of plain white material and ruffled them on
the sewing machine. Next, I used hot glue to adhere the
ruffle on to the white dotted border.
This finished the place mats but we have to have coordinating
napkin rings, don't we?
For the actual ring, I just cut a two inch ring from a
paper towel roll and covered it with white contact paper.
I then found some pretty lace in my stash and wrapped it on the rings.
Then I used the fabric I had decided upon and made some
fabric flowers to top the rings. I also glued a small golden
bling in the middle of the flower.
I am thinking that after the brunch, I can bundle these up
for Mom to take home with her.
Do you think she will like them?
Stay tuned for the table cloth, napkins and runner.
The table would not be complete unless it was all
matchy, matchy right???
