The other day….I took my daughter swimming, and while I could’ve perfectly just sat down in the cafeteria outside the pool waiting for her, sipping a coffee maybe… relaxing a bit, you know… I instead decided to use those 45 minutes to run to the nearby grocery store to grab some bread and snacks for the next day. I walked into the store and realized [I think I even made a strange noise of excitement] they had set up a new Euro section! I forgot all about my little grocery list instantly! 45 minutes went by too fast and I had to dash back to get my kid out of the pool and showered so I ended up with only a few things… no bread or snacks though. So, today let me show you what I’ve done with one of those 1Euro treasures: A stencilled place mat turned into wall decor!

Stencilled Place Mat turned into Wall Decor
What this is supposed to be, I have no idea of…. I guess it could have several purposes, a place mat, a coaster to protect the table? Who cares, it doesn’t matter, I love it as is and just wanted to add a little Katrin touch to it… And I noticed that loop on the side, which to me looked perfect to make a wall decor piece out of this!
Out came my Lotta Jansdotter Stencils and a white marker!
I love how uneven it turned out, but how you can still make out the stencils! I think it took me like 5 minutes to make this fun wall decor from a place mat or what ever it was meant to be! It can still be one, one day I might just take it down and put it on the table and put a plant on it or an antler or something. You never know.
If you like to save it for later, pin it!!
