I received a box of amazing craft supplies from Plaid and it included a shopping card from Walmart.
I couldn’t wait to go shopping and find something to create.
Have you seen all the Plaid craft supplies at Walmart? The craft department is filled with tons of options!
They had everything that I needed to create a fun summer tablescape: Mod Podge, FolkArt chalkboard paint and Apple Barrel acrylic paint
So many choices!
Road trips are a big part of our summer, so I decided on a road trip inspired tablescape. I bought square chargers and I searched for a chambray fabric for my napkins. When I didn’t find what I wanted in the fabric department, I headed to the clothing section. Bingo! A shift type dress was made of exactly what I wanted!
Mod Podge Map and Chalkboard Center Chargers:
- Mod Podge and sponge applicator
- X-acto knife
- FolkArt Chalkboard Paint
I measured the charger, used a pen and ruler to mark the 4 pieces of map to fit the area that I was going to Mod Podge. I applied the Mod Podge to one area at a time, lined up the map and positioned it on to the charger. Pressing out bubbles as I went. Repeat 3 more times, until the charger is complete. Once everything was dry I applied Mod Podge over the top of the mapped area.
I applied two coats of FolkArt Chalkboard Paint to the center of the chargers. I love this chalkboard paint. It went on so smooth and dried dark. Cure the chalkboard by rubbing the entire area with chalk.
After everything dried I used my X-acto knife to trim the overhang of the map.
Staying with my theme, I chalked popular road trip sites :).
Napkins Painted with Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint
- painters tape
- Apple Barrel acrylic paint
- pinking shears
Cut fabric in to 18″ squares, tape off the design and paint with Apple Barrel acrylic paint.
Here’s how it all turned out:
Using square clear plates ( also available at Walmart), you can see the chalkboard signs!
The napkins wrapped in raffia hold the silverware.
Now I’m ready for a Road Trip and a party!
