If you saw my post earlier this week on how to make a super easy burlap runner for the holidays, this concept will be familiar to you. It’s a super simple burlap place mat, no sewing required, and a great compliment to the runner. Especially if you add a napkin wrapped with the same ribbon you used on the runner. Matchy-matchy cute table setting and barely any work required!
I really like scallops lately, so I decided to make my placemat have scalloped edges.
To measure size, I just used another regular place mat as a template and trace it, cut out the rectangle and then cut the sides into scallops freehand. (I think the rectangle was about 12 inches by 16 inches.)
Now, these are not the most perfect scallops of all time but I’m no perfectionist, and I am quite happy with the result. One yard of burlap will probably make you four to six of these placemats! Since burlap is around $2 a yard, this project will cost you basically nothing and will take maybe half an hour to cut out. That is my kind of project!
