No Sew Valentine's Day Placemats

Confession: I am not usually that DIY girl. I mean, if I can buy the same thing, why would I do it myself? But this weekend, something clicked in me, and I wanted to see if I could master a few easy and cheap DIYs. And you know what? I did it! And you know what else? It was fun!

I know some people out there detest Valentine's Day or have mixed feelings about it, but I happen to love it. Single or taken, married or dating, Valentine's Day a wonderful way to celebrate love. Whether you're celebrating with your significant other or your best friends, embrace it!

If I were going to throw a soiree this year, I have to say that I'd love to have a little Valentine's Day brunch with my besties. The idea of getting all of us together to have a small celebration of our friendship warms my heart. And if I was going to throw a brunch, I'd want to decorate my table using these adorable no sew Valentine's Day placemats made with pom poms. Not only are they festive, but you can make two for $8 or so. Ready for the quick DIY?

DIY pom pom placemats

 You will need:
- 1.5 yards of pom pom ribbon per placemat 
- scissors 

To create:
Start by heating up your glue gun. Make sure it's hot before you begin so that your glue doesn't dry as soon as it hits the placemat.

Next find the seam of your placemat. Starting with the seam, add a line of glue around the edge. Only add about 3-5 inches of glue at a time so that you don't have to work quickly. Add your pom poms ribbon to the glue pushing it as close to the edge of the placemat as it will go. Continue with glue and ribbon until you've ended where you started. Cut the excess pom poms and save them for another project down the road.

Ta-da! Now, I know this isn't the hardest DIY to master, but it just may be the cutest! I'll have two Valentine's Day party favors coming your way later this week, each one coming in at $1.50 and $1 respectively. Woohoo! Stay tuned...
