St. Patrick's Day Placemats



I was so excited to get stencils from The Crafter's Workshop and discover this shamrock! 

The title of it is actually  "Happy Clover Fragment".  It's so delicate and beautiful that I needed to use it right away for the upcoming holiday! 

#TCW2071


Dashing to my linen storage, I pulled out these green dollar store place mats to prepare them for the stencil. 




I removed the beads to add this gold bias tape on the edges with Speed-Sew glue.
(No sewing! Love that!)




When the glue dried I applied Easy Tack to the stencil so it would stick to the fabric. 


I chose to use gold glitter glue to sponge through the stencil. 





Then applied a light layer of gold acrylic paint. 




I placed the stencil fragment randomly in all four of the corners.



This little creative craft went very quickly and easily! 

Now these plain old ugly place mats are ready for our St. Patrick's Day table! 


I love this stencil!!!
It's soooo cute! 




I still have time to use it on some napkins too.
