7 DIY placemat & charger plate ideas that will impress your guests

I am all about DIY! As long as it's relatively easy (I am impatient, with limited skills), affordable (I am trying to save some pennies) and practical (I am obsessed with recycling and multi purpose creations). Today's creations tick all the boxes and if the thought of making each idea for all your guests scares the crap out of you, then simply make some for the bridal table or use the ideas to add something special to your table centerpieces. Time to get your DIY on beautiful people!

While I am certainly no expert sewer, I am pretty sure this involves two pieces of fabric (keep the back plain in a cheaper fabric to save money) and a border that gets stitched in when you sew the pieces together... or maybe stuck on later? haha (if in doubt ask the staff at Spotlight!) If you are not up for crafting placemats for all your guests they would also look great in the center of your table under florals.

Always a bonus!
