DIY Canvas Fabric Placemats

Cotton canvas is a very versatile material. We chose canvas for our DIY placemats because it will not unravel after cutting, and it’s durable and washable for reuse. You can use the golden yellow to brighten up your home, or feel free to match the décor in your own home. At only $4/yard, you will have enough canvas to make placemats for every season!
