{Mommy Craft} : Burlap Placemats

For several months now, I have wanted to make new placemats.  Our old ones have been washed so many times that they are starting to struggle.  They have also lead to numerous spills because they are small and the boys consistantly manage to put their drink cups on the edge of the mat.  One small bump and down they go.

During Thanksgiving, while cruising Pinterest, I came across a set made from burlap that had different words for eat on them.  I loved the burlap idea, but I wasn’t feeling the words, because it just isn’t us.  So I decided to make my own version.

This were super simple to make.  The boys think they are pretty cool and I am just happy to have bigger placemats to use on our table.

What have you made lately?

1.  Wrap the jute around the neck of the jar.


2.  Wrap the metallic thread over the top of the jute.
