Project developed in collaboration with Chloé Comte, artist and DIY blogger.

MATERIALS:

  • Black kraft paper
  • Pencil
  • Eraser
  • Molotow Chrome markers
  • Scissors
  • Washi decorative tape
  • Double-sided tape
  • Glue Dots

INSTRUCTIONS:

Step 1 : 

Cut rectangles (about 19 × 14 in) so that plates, glasses and utensils can be placed on the placemats.

Step 2 : 

Draw designs on the black paper using a pencil, sticking the corners of the black paper to your work surface with Washi decorative tape (to secure the paper without damaging it).

Step 3 : 

Go over the designs with Molotow Chrome markers. Use different tip sizes to obtain different effects.

Step 4 : 

Stick the paper placemats to your table or tablecloth using double-sided tape or Glue Dots glue.

 

TIPS:

You can also make a centrepiece by using the same technique on a long strip of black kraft paper placed at the centre of the table, like a runner.
