Make A Confetti Placemat

filed under

Monday’s can always use a little more confetti right? While I absolutely love confetti, sometimes it is a bit like glitter where it just kind of gets everywhere and is never really gone. That’s a small price to pay for the fun times that is confetti! However, sometimes I want to use confetti at a party and not have to worry about it getting in every nook. That’s when I had the brilliant idea (I’m not above calling myself a genius! Ha!) to make a confetti placemat for my dinner table! It is such a simple project and seriously how amazing is it to be able to have confetti on your table and not have to clean it up afterwards?!

Basically the process is really straight forward. Just cut your vinyl into a placemat size (about 13″ by 18″) with rounded corners. You will need two pieces for each placemat. Then place your teflon presser foot on your sewing machine and sew the two pieces of vinyl together around the outer edge while leaving a 3-4″ gap on one side. Once sewn, add confetti to the opening between the two layers of vinyl and then finish stitching the placemat closed. Make A Confetti Placemat

That’s it! Your confetti placemat is complete! So simple, right? And do you know what is even better? You can use whatever confetti you want! I used the same confetti that I have in my tumblers and cocktail shaker, but you can easily make a confetti placemat with solid color confetti that matches your party theme. Or you can even use holiday themed confetti like this Easter bunny one for Easter dinner or brunch! Make A Confetti Placemat

    I understand the Teflon foot but how do you get it to slide easily on the sewing surface? Thanks for your help – these are adorable!!

    • says:

      I didn’t have any problem with it sliding when I used the teflon foot. But you can always use a spray sewing machine oil to help it glide through better. Then just wipe the surface clean afterward.

    Hello. Can you please let me know where you got the gold and white charger plate and the pink and gold plate on top? Everything looks so great!

    • says:

      The Charger plate was from Home Goods. The pink plate I made by spray painting the back of a clear glass plate and then adding a gold leaf edge.
