Place mats are an important table accessory during Christmas because this is the time for the family reunion and the time to toast to each other's good life by sitting together in the dinner table during the family Christmas dinner.
These place mats can be made to look special if it bears the mark of creativity of the kids.
Here is Christmas Carnivals providing you with information on the Christmas Place Mats that can be made easily by kids. For decorating the place mats the things that you will need are the place mats, which can be of any color but without any patterns done on them, the stencils, which have some of the Christmas icons cut out on them, and some fabric colors. Since the place mats are decorated chiefly on the occasion of Christmas, it will be better if we choose the festive colors of red and green as the base colors for the mats.
Now for the stencils, you can either have patterns like stars, Christmas trees or Santa Claus. If there are many place mats to be painted you can use two designs and make it alternatively, but if there are just a few you may make separate patterns for each. Draw the outlines of the figures on the mats with the pen and then fill it with the fabric colors. Golden is a festive color so just put in touches of it in all the figures. Let the paint dry for a few hours and when it gets completely dried run a very mildly heated iron on it for a couple of times. Your Christmas Place Mats are ready to be used.
