Budget Friendly, Simple Placemats

There are only 4 needed supplies for this DIY! And you probably have most of them!

* 2 - 4 foam sheets (depending on how many place-mats you want) SO CHEAP. I paid .89 cents each.
* Paint - we used acrylic - you need brushes too
* Washi tape
* Mod-Podge or a laminator

That's it!

OK, OK. We also used stamps... 5 supplies.

I basically just let Ada go to town, adding anything she wanted to the foam. I helped guide her color choices a little. We painted and stamped first, then when the paint was dry, we added strips of washi tape.

Stamps and doodles.


I ran the decorated foam through a laminator. It did ok. It buckled and wrinkled a little, but they turned out just fine.

Fine enough to have food dripped all over them.

If you don't have access to a laminator, put a good coat and seal of mod-podge over everything.

We just made 2 because they fit our table better. It adds a nice pop of color to the table. Along with that new fruit bowl that I scored at Hobby Lobby - 40% off coupon baby!

And this is what our kitchen table looks like when we aren't making a giant arty-mess on it!
