DIY Ombre Chevron Placemats

Woot Hi there, me here, Cami from TitiCrafty. I love Chevron and I haven’t used it much {How weird is that?} so I decided to fix it. Today I’m sharing a cute and decorative craft. I made some ombre chevron placemats for my mom. My mom’s current dining table is white so they look so nice. Hopefully after the big move they will looks as good on the wood dining table she has on the other house LOL.

DIY Ombre Chevron Placemats, so easy with step by step instructions!

This craft is really fun and easy, I love playing with paint =D. This time I didn’t use brushes, just paint and a sponge.

What you need:

  • 4 pieces of fabric {45×35 cm}
  • Fabric Paint {color of your choice + White}
  • Freezer paper
  • Sponge
  • Stick or small brush

I cut some chevron stripes of freezer paper with my Silhouette Cameo. You can do it either with the Cameo or masking tape if you don’t have it. Place the chevron stripes over the fabric trying to keep an even distance between each stripe. If using freezer paper like me, Iron it to the fabric.

Place some paint on a plate {In my case I made the color I wanted mixing colors} and with the sponge, I spread the paint with small taps until fill all the area. I like it like that because the paint doesn’t leak into the freezer paper.

Every 2 or 3 rows add some white paint to the color you are using and mix well with a stick or brush.

Keep doing this until all the rows are painted. Let it dry

Once dry, remove the freezer paper carefully.

That’s it! Repeat with the other placemats. Woot!

  1. I love how these turned out, very stylish. But I have a question, how come you didn’t get paint all over your lovely table? I’m sure I would have to put paper or plastic down first, am I just a very messy crafter?!

    1. LOL that’s a good question! I should have covered the table but sometimes I just get focused on what I’m doing and forget about the rest LOL and I can get really messy at a times. I did paint the table a bit but I cleaned it right away with a wipe =D. Glad you like the placemats!!!
