DIY Chain Trimmed Placemats


This post is a special one for me, because it’s the first time I am writing to you as a married woman! Our wedding was one of the happiest days of our lives and I can’t wait to share all the details with you soon. Our first month of married life has been fantastic and one of the most fun we’ve had is decorating our new place.



After many weeks of searching for furniture, our apartment is almost complete! One of my favorite pieces is our Modway Dining Table from my new favorite online store, Wayfair. If you're in the market for furniture, accessories, or any other home-related items, Wayfair has it all! We needed something modern and white to brighten up the place a bit and this table did the trick. And now that we got the main furniture pieces sorted out, it’s time for my favorite part…accessorizing! 




I bought some plain placemats for about $2 each and wanted to glam them up a bit for my new table. I bought a couple pieces of chain from the craft store and after some super simple stitching, my new placemats were born! You can also use this technique with fringe or fabric trim as well. Follow the simple steps below to make your own set! 





Supplies: 
• Placemats
• Decorative Chain (found online or at craft stores. make sure the holes are large enough for the needle to poke through) 
• Embroidery Floss
• Threading Needle
• Scissors
• Wire Cutters



Steps: 
• Thread needle with the embroidery floss and tie a double knot at the end.
 Place the end of the chain next to the edge of the placemat. Run the needle through the chain and the edge of the placemat and pull tightly.



 Continue stitching the chain and placemat together then tie a double knot to secure the stitch when complete.
 Trim the ends of the string with scissors and cut off any excess chain with wire cutters.

  3. I love the idea of the trimmed placemats! I can imagine something like this in Christmas-style would be very cool as well.
