{DIY} How to Make a Fall Backdrop Using Cheap Woven Placemats

If you read my blog, you know I love interesting backdrops. When putting together my recent Halloween dessert table I wanted something stylish, modern, cheap, and easy as my backdrop so I came up with this...


  • 7 SNAR placemats from Ikea ($2 each)
  • 28 gauge galvanized wire

I found these SNAR placemats at Ikea. I bought eight (but used seven in the backdrop).

I laid them out on the floor how I wanted them.

Using 28 gauge galvanized wire, I wired them to each other.

When I was done, I used heavy duty XL Glue Dots to hang it on the wall (but you can also use fishing wire and small tacks if you like).

Simple! Oh how I loved how it looked and it took me 15 minutes to put together!
