Easy Painted Alphabet Placemat

Some of my fondest memories of childhood are of using fabric paints and pens to make custom t-shirts, pillowcases, and quilt blocks. I would have loved this technique, demonstrated at No Time for Flashcards — using a product called Ink Effects, she painted these colorful letters on a sheet of paper, and then ironed it on to a placemat. The paint-and-transfer technique has me totally …

Make Outdoor Bamboo Candles

We love our placemats around here.  There are dozens of different things you can use them for besides dressing up and protecting your table!  I’m working on a massive garden project this year, so I am especially keen on outdoor projects; these candle holders by Jean at Flower Hill Design are just the kind of project I’ve been collecting to try out this summer!  Not …

Fifteen minutes or less.  That’s seriously how long it will take you to make this pillow!  Angie from The Country Chic Cottage whipped it up as part of a 15-minute craft series that she hosted in conjunction with Moore Craft Time.  (Check out more 15 minute crafts!)  The project requires minimal sewing and uses paper doilies to create what looks like painstaking detail without needing …

Make Upcycled Denim Placemats

I’ve seen some interesting placemat ideas over the years, but few as nifty as these denim placemats that Sam from Today’s Nest made out of old pairs of jeans!  I’m absolutely giddy over the silverware and napkin tucked in the pocket.  I’ve been avoiding yard sales and thrift stores lately (I need to get rid of stuff, not accumulate more), but this project might call …
