Make this gorgeous Thanksgiving wall hanging from a cheap dollar store placemat!

Turn a dollar store placemat into this Simple Thanksgiving Wall Hanging! | littleredwindow.comThe Target dollar section got me again, you guys. I seriously should not be allowed to go in there. Especially since most of the things in there are no longer actually just a dollar. But I just can’t resist. And this cute little “Grateful” placemat jumped in my cart the last time I was in the store. I only got one because I knew I wasn’t actually going to use it as a placemat. But how cute would a bunch of them be on a big thanksgiving table? So cute, you wouldn’t want to put plates on top of them! Anyway, I wandered the aisle at the hardware store around the corner and grabbed a couple things that made this wall hanging super simple. Here’s how I did it!

Simple Thanksgiving Wall Hanging

4 1″ copper pipe couplings

1″ wood dowel

Thanksgiving Placemat (similar)

Water based wood stain

Hot glue gun

Small wood saw

  1. First I held the dowel up to my placemat and marked about a total of 2 inches longer than the placemat and then cut two pieces of the same length.Turn a dollar store placemat into this Simple Thanksgiving Wall Hanging! | littleredwindow.com2. Dry fit the copper couplings on the ends of your dowels, if they’re too tight, you might need to sand them down a little. Then stain a couple inches at each end of each dowel and let it dry.Turn a dollar store placemat into this Simple Thanksgiving Wall Hanging! | littleredwindow.com

Line the edge of the placemat up centered on one dowell and glue it. Then wrap it around a little to hide the dowel and add more glue. Repeat with the other dowel.
