Decorate Place Mats for the Holidays

2 Materials
10 Minutes
Something to do for the holidays plus decorate your table at the same time! This place mat project is easy, inexpensive, and something everyone can do. Great for gift ideas too!

You'll need:

Acrylic paints of your choice (mine are from Walmart)

Cookie Cutters for whatever holiday you're decorating for

Place mats (mine came from Dollar Tree)

Optional Sharpie markers

Put your acrylic paint on a plate.

Dip your cookie cutter in your plate of paint

Press the cookie cutter with paint on it onto the place mat.

After the paint dries, feel free to color in with Sharpies if desired.

We made these place mats back in 2009 and they have held up this whole time, only the Sharpie marker has faded with all the washes.

The first one is mine, this one above is my son's, he was 4 at the time he made this one.

The one above this is my daughter's. She was 8.

The one below this was one the kids made me for Mother's Day. It was all Sharpie marker.

You can use this idea as something to do while you have all the guests at your house. You can make it before hand, You can use is as a gift idea.

Happy Holidays!
