How To Make Moss Shamrock Placemats

Y’all I’m so excited to share these cute placemats with you. They only cost $3.00 each to make and it was so easy. I saw some similar for $14.99 each and had to give this project a try.

Here is How To Make Moss Shamrock Placemat for cheap. Just use the inexpensive items listed below and save over $10.00 each for these cute placemats. They are perfect for a St. Patrick’s Day Theme Party or Dinner.

I’m using them on my Virtual Supper Club Tablescape that you will see on Thursday.

Materials Needed for Moss Shamrock Placemats

Step 1

Roll out your moss mat with the backside up. Then lay your Dollar Tree Felt Shamrock on the sheet moss and trace around the edges.

Next Step

Next, remove the shamrock placemat and begin cutting the shape out of the moss.

Step 3

Turn the Dollar Tree Shamrock to the backside and apply a good bead of glue around the edges of the shamrock. Then fill in the center with additional glue.

Here is a fun plate charger tutorial I made last spring.

Final Step to make Moss Shamrock Placemats

Place the wrong side of the shamrock shaped moss on top of the glue and press down. You may also need to put a weight the moss until the glue has set. In addition, be sure the glue has not seeped out around any edges or cut outs on the felt shamrock.

One roll of moss is exactly enough to cover the 4 Felt Shamrocks, however the 4th one had to be pieced together. Although its pieced, you can’t tell when the glue is dry.

The Finished Moss Shamrock

I love the texture the moss shamrock placemats give to the place setting that I have planned for the St. Patrick’s Day Virtual Supper Club.

Here is the St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape for Thursday.

The gold coins were hot glued to a jute string for simple napkin ties for the tablescape.

UPDATE: I used these same placemats again for a second year on my St. Patty’s Table with a Touch of Pink and they still looked great. Did you know that preserved moss will last for years if proper care is taken. I shared the details and how to freshen faded moss here.
