New Placemats

Our dining room table has been boring and undecorated for too long.  I had a table cloth I liked in the summer, but never found anything wintery that I liked.  So, I decided that I'd just make some placemats.  The beauty of making your own home decor is that you can get exactly what you want. 

I love these fabrics together.  We have a lot of grey in our house.  It's the main color we have going on in our living room (which is connected to the dining room), so I thought this would tie in but also introduce a new color.

I made two with the pink fabric on the left strip and two with the grey on the left strip.

Here is the back side of the placemats.

Now I just need to find something for a center piece.  The bowl is a start, but I just need to think of something to put in it! 

I also put out my Valentine's heart on our door yesterday.  Sorry this is super close up.   There is snow on the ground and it's about 3 degrees outside.  It was not worth it to me to go outside to get a better picture!

Stay warm out there!   I'm watching the Bears vs. Packers game and those people in the stands make me shiver just to look at them!

You should make placemats like your door mats. They would be kid friendly and darling!
