Does your little one make messes during meal time? Learn how to make waterproof placemats with Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge! It’s really easy.
My two-year-old makes huge messes at meal times and a placemat is a must. I decided to use some Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge to make a super cute DIY placemat that can easily be wiped off.
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 vinyl or rubber placemat
- Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge
- Maps (or book pages, wrapping paper etc)
- Foam brush
Begin by laying out your map on the placemat. You may need to cut them to piece it together. You can also use pages from a children’s book, fun wrapping paper, your child’s artwork or lots of other options!
Brush a layer of Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge on the placemat, lay your maps on top and then brush another layer on top of the maps.
Once it is fully dry, add another layer of Mod Podge. Continue doing this until you have about three layers on top of the maps.
After the placemat is fully dry, you can put it to use! I can’t wait to come up with another Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge craft! Now that you know how to make waterproof placemats, what else will you waterproof?
