Placemat Flower Display


After adding pins to the backs of some of my road trip flowers, I needed a place to store/display them while they’re waiting to become gifts and one of my World Market bargain bin placemats works perfectly! I simply stitched two ribbon loops on the back of the placemat, pinned on the flowers, and hung it on my sewing room wall. I love how bright and cheery it looks! Oh, and here are links to some more placemat projects:

Happy Monday!

  1. Good Morning! I looked around for an email address on your blog but didn’t find anything. So, I’m sending this message via comments on your last post (hope that’s okay). I’ve nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. I see you’ve won other awards so I assume you know all the rules of how to ‘accept’ (I didn’t, so I had to ask what it was all about).
    Congrats! and THANK YOU for having such a fun blog, with inspiring & creative ideas. I always look forward to seeing what you’re up to next!
    Happy Monday!

    • Oh, thank you, Hilary! How kind of you! Please allow me to *bend* the rules a bit and, instead of writing a post about myself, add the button to my sidebar with a big THANK YOU to you (plus, when you click on the button, it links back to you!) as a token of my appreciation. And keep up the great work on YOUR blog! Thank you again . . . you made my day!:) Katherine

  2. What a great idea! One of these days, I’ll have to take pictures of my sister-in-law’s ideal crafting room. (I am so-o-o-o jealous!) She scrapbooks and quilts so when her daughter moved out, she converted her bedroom into the perfect space. She has a huge styrofoam board (about 1 1/2″, I think) screwed onto the wall and covered with material, making it the perfect place to pin her quilt squares before sewing them. It would also work for your flowers, but I think the placemat idea is prettier.:)

    • That sounds amazing . . . maybe you can feature it in a blog post! Right now my sewing/crafting room is also my office, so it’s stuffed (and my projects often spill over to the dining room table) . . . but I’m thankful to have it!:)

    • Sounds like a great idea. I just finished a way more complicated wall treatment ..see posts for July, but since I don’t do big stuff, I wanted smaller squares. I like the foam core idea since it is way thicker than the cork squares I used. Just stopped by your site and can’t wait to get back to it … when I finish cleaning up my mess from the wall project.
