Remember those hexagon watermelon and pineapple placemats we’ve already spotted? Here’s one more project of the series, and it’s a blueberry! Since the hexagons make the outside a little lumpy, it’s probably better as a boysenberry, blackberry, or a raspberry. In fact, you could make a whole set of placemats with just different colored berries!

Dining outside is one of my favorite things to do in, and these DIY placemats fit in perfectly with that plan. Bright, festive, and easy to clean (just shake!), I can’t imagine late summer dinners without them now! The pieces are made of bamboo skewers, not wood, which makes the craft very budget-friendly. And even though I know none of us want to talk about it right now, these mats are so easy to roll up and store for winter.
