Astro turf madness (and placemats too!)

This astro turf placemat project is easy-peasy, and ties in with the eggshell vase project from Tuesday May 9th.
I love this stuff because there are about a million things you can do with it. Plus, it's durable and easy to clean- you can sweep it or wash it with mild soap and water. I'm making astro turf placemats, but you could also do a table runner, doormat/floor mat, pet dish placemat, coasters, even cut the turf into simple shapes (circles, squares, hearts, etc.)and create an outdoor or indoor pathway. You name it...go nuts!

Here's what you'll need:
1.Astro turf in the color of your choice (I've been looking for pink to no avail, so if anyone knows where to find it, holla!)
2.Scissors
3.Ruler
4.Marking pen

supplies

Step 1:
Mark out the size and shape of what you're cutting on the backside of the astro turf using your ruler and marking pen.

Step 2:
Cut and enjoy.

finished!
