For one-a-kind-placemats that won't break the bank, it doesn't get much better than these DIY dip dye placemats from Bri Emery at DesignLoveFest. Made of heavyweight linen dipped in fabric dye with an unfussy frayed edge, they're pretty yet casual.
Bri notes these placemats would be a terrific for an outdoor party or wedding reception. (Group dip-dyeing session with the bridesmaids, perhaps?) The black, pink, and gold color combo is beautiful, but any color would work! Pick your favorite!
