I'm still working on some projects for our Thanksgiving decorations. I want things to be lively and fun this year so, I had the idea to make some leopard print place mats. They were inspired by my leopard print flats that I've been wearing a lot this fall.
Originally, I was thinking of sewing some from drop cloth and then painting the leopard print on to it. But then I remembered that
black craft paint
metallic gold craft paint
After I cut the place mats down to the size I wanted, I pulled off some of the side strands to give it a frayed edge all around.
To paint the leopard print, I first used the metallic gold paint to make dots all over the place mat. Then, I painted the black border on each of the spots.
I'm loving how they turned out! What do you think?
This weekend, I'm going to a friends Pampered Chef party, which I'm excited about because she said we were making home made ravioli. Yum! What are your plans for the weekend?
