DIY Kate Spade Saturday Painted Straw Placemats

March 9, 2015Sarah Khandjian

You don't need to be an artist to create your own set of Kate Spade Saturday inspired placemats. Such a fun way to dress up your table for spring!

Now that spring feels like it’s officially come to Florida, I want to add as many bright, floral things to our home as I possibly can. My go-to spring color palette is usually mint, coral and gold but I decided to swap that palette for a more modern mix of colors. I’ve adored the new Kate Spade Saturday collection for West Elm since I launched (I mean have you seen this arm chair?) so I thought it would be fun to create a set of placemats that are inspired by the collection.

I starred with a set of ready-made round woven placemats and added a mix of muted pink, grayish blue, white, yellow and black paint. The best part about this project is that you don’t need to be an artist. A large paint brush makes it super easy to create loose brush strokes that almost resemble flowers. So perfect for spring!

Use a larger paint brush to transform ready-made woven straw placemats into bold floral ones inspired by the Kate Spade Saturday collection.

Time: 30 minutes + drying time
: straw placemats / craft paint / large paint brush

Step 1: Starting with the lightest color, paint large brush strokes in a floral-like pattern around the placemat. Alternate colors until you’re happy with the results. Super simple!
