Camp Blanket Inspired Placemats

I love the look of vintage camp blankets, particularly the ones with iconic stripes. For my upcoming fall tour, I wanted the look of one without the price. When I was thinking about ideas for my dining table, camp blanket inspired placemats seemed the perfect way to add pattern to my table! For a fraction of the price and a bit of time, I was able to get the look of those striped blankets that I love so much!

  1. Tape off your stripes. I used the width of the tape to help decide the width of the painted stripes. Press the edges of the tape down firmly. Make your own camp blanket inspired placemats for your fall table. These DIY placemats are easy and quick to make.
  2. Mix your paint colors with fabric medium. It’s not an exact science, so I don’t have a ratio of paint to medium. You just want your paint to be thinner because it makes it easier to paint on fabric.
  3. Start painting the stripes. Wetting the brush and painting a bit of water on the fabric first helped the paint go on easier. It also thins the paint a bit, so be careful. Don’t add too much paint or your stripes will bleed. Make your own camp blanket inspired placemats for your fall table. These DIY placemats are easy and quick to make.
  4. Continue onto the next color until done. For the color order, you can look at photos of the brand that you like. I used reference photos of the Hudson Bay Company blanket for this order. Some blankets don’t use green at all. It’s up to you. Make your own camp blanket inspired placemats for your fall table. These DIY placemats are easy and quick to make.
  5. Pull of the tape and let the placemats dry. I was able to reuse my tape for the other 3 placemats.The excess paint had mostly dried by the time I reapplied it to the next placemat. Be sure you press down the edges well. Make your own camp blanket inspired placemats for your fall table. These DIY placemats are easy and quick to make.
  6. When the placemats are dry, iron with a warm iron to set the paint.
