DIY Pumpkin Placemats

By Wendy from WM Designhouse

I made these fun pumpkin placemats for a baby shower I was having in late September last year.

I loved them so much that I used them all season and for our Thanksgiving dinner.

They are a fun project; you can get the whole family involved.

I have used them with these cute white enamel plates, clear plates, and even cute paper plates.

They are so easy to store away after the season as they are small and flat. I can’t wait to pull them out again this year.
