Christmas Place Mats

At Christmas I made some placemats for my Christmas table. They turned out great and made a fun addition to my table. To check out more fun ideas go over to see the Helmar Creative Team page to see what others 

I printed off some music paper to use. If you would like to have these to use in your projects they are a free download and available here

So I used some other music papers for the edges, as the A4 sheet of music paper was not quite big enough to cover my star. Using the Helmar Decoupage and craft paste, I spread it onto my star placemat and on the back of the music paper.

Then using the Helmar paint and glue spreader I smoothed out any bubbles. Then I cut out the A4 sheet of music paper using the same technique with the Helmar decoupage and craft paste I placed  over the top. Spreading out any bubbles.

When it is all dry I go around the edges with sandpaper or a cardboard nail file to smooth all the edges and get any of the remaining paper, that is overlapping the edge. 

I then used some Decoart gold Metallic Luster to add a bit of sparkle all around the edges.  I used it here and there on the front too just because well you can’t have too much gold sparkle.

To finish it off and to protect it I sealed it with 2 coats of Helmar Crystal Kote in the Matte Spray. 

Have a great day
