Hudson Bay Blanket Inspired Placemats

5 Materials
30 Minutes

I love to collect vintage camp decor. Vintage camp blankets are high on my collection bucket list, but finding them at a decent price is pretty hard. Good thing I'm crafty! Until I find some to use around the house, I can make my own decor inspired by them. Like these fun, DIY Hudson Bay blanket inspired placemats.

I started with cream colored placemats. Then, I used 1" painters tape to start taping off my stripes. Make sure the tape is pressed down well.

Mix your colors with fabric medium. It makes regular craft paint softer for fabric.

Start painting the stripes. I looked at vintage camp blankets to determine the color order. Go easy on the paint or it will bleed under the tape. Paint with the tape and not against it for best results.

Continue painting your stripes. I used the tape to determine the width for the stripes.

If you're doing a set of placemats, the tape can be reused for the other placemats. Pull it off while the paint is wet and gently apply it to the next placemat.

Let the paint dry completely. The set the paint with a warm iron.

Enjoy your camp blanket inspired placemats!!
