You need one round place mat. This one is chocolate brown in color, even though the picture is dull. It's made of straw like material and very pliable, not ridged.
Here's a better idea of the color and the size.
Roll the place mat into a cone and temporarily hold together with clips
Hot glue in the over lapping area. Hold in place until dries...just a few seconds.
Now you are ready to fill with any thing from flowers, leaves, berries...
I also hot glued on a little hanger. If you use a fabric place mat, you could sew this on too.
Before filling with your decorations, I filled the point with a little tissue paper to take up some of the space in there. Not necessary, but helped with some of the flowers I used.
Here is the first idea...filled with fall berries and hung next to the fireplace.
Then I decided to add a bow.
You could also hang it on your door.
Trimmed the bow tail a little.
How about a bouquet of colorful leaves?
You could also place it on your table as a center piece...leaves and acorns
or just leaves...maybe even small pumpkins and gourds would be cute.
This is a very inexpensive project and can be used any time of year. Most place mats that I use are only $1.00-2.00 each. Think ahead for Christmas too. A beautiful green place mat with colorful red berries and evergreens from the yard...ok maybe you'll be seeing more place mat projects in the near future!!
Have a great Tuesday,
