How To Make Moss Shamrock Placemats

Here is How To Make Moss Shamrock Placemats for cheap with Dollar Tree. 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.

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 ones for $14.99 each and had to try this project.

I’m using them on my St. Patrick’s Day Supper Club Tablescape.

Materials Needed for Moss Shamrock Placemats

Supplies to make a St. Patrick Day DIY Shamrock Placemat.

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.

Trace the dollar tree store shamrock onto moss sheet.

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.

The 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 weigh the moss until the glue has set. Also, please ensure the glue has not seeped around any edges or cutouts on the felt shamrock.

Press moss sheet into glued Dollar Tree Shamrock to adhere.

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

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.

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.
