Valentine’s DIY Confetti Placemats


ooking for a quick and easy Valentine's Day craft to do with your kids? Look no further. These Valentine's DIY confetti placemats are adorable and fun to make. My kids loved working on these, and they are so proud of their finished product.

For this project, I went with a 12×15 clear plastic cutting board mat. They were thicker and more durable than the vinyl I was considering. Next time, I will probably go with a slightly larger size.

Pro tip = Change up your colors and make these for whatever holiday you need them for!


Step One:

Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge directly onto the cutting board mat using a foam paint brush.

Sprinkle confetti on top of the Mod Podge. Let dry approximately 30 minutes.
