Use a pair of thrifted placemats to make an upcycled DIY bath mat. This craft is budget friendly and can be made in 15 minutes!
The linen rack is one of the sections I check religiously whenever I’m at the thrift store. And when I came across a complete set of these woven placemats, I knew I wanted to bring them home.
But not for their intended purpose.
Instead I stitched a couple together to add a splash of color as an upcycled DIY bath mat.
To make your own all you need is two placemats, some colorful embroidery thread, and a sewing needle.
Line the mats up and zig zag stitch all the way down, making sure to knot the thread at the beginning and end.
A 15-minute craft, and you’re done! I hope this upcycled bath mat inspires you to look at things a little differently the next time you’re at the thrift store!
