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 only do they look slick adorning your patio table during the day, they also look amazing lit up at night!  [how to make outdoor bamboo candles]
