How to Make Camp Blanket-Inspired Placemats
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Continue on to 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.
- Pull off 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.
- When the placemats are dry, iron them with a warm iron to set the paint.
