  • a paint brush
  • a roll of red paper (craft, wrapping, or otherwise)

Blood-Splattered Placemats

Step 1

DIY Halloween 2018-14

Print out our placemat template, and cut those bad boys out!

Step 2

Trace the template on the poster board, and cut your placemat out! The poster board gives your placemats much more structure, and a nice gloss finish. Cut out as many as you’ll need for your table!

Step 3

This is the fun part! Splatter the heck out of these placemats with a deep, dark, red paint. We recommend doing this step on a Monday, or any day where you’re frustrated. It makes it much more gratifying. All done with the placemats!
