This fantastic rustic birch placemat will be perfect for any type of family dinner, including Christmas. Prepare birch wrapping paper, some leftover felt, scissors, and a hot glue gun. Speaking about felt, here it was a 14.5″x18″ rectangle but you can go for any size you like. Glue the felt to the backside of the birch wrapping paper using the hot glue gun, to give the paper extra weight and cushion. Setting a plate on the felt-backed paper just kind of feels good and luxurious, but the felt step is definitely an optional thing. You can glitter the placemats or leave them as they are.
