I love to make crafts using Dollar Tree supplies, so that is where I started with this craft. I wanted to make something that could be used outside for July 4th, but also other holidays as well like Memorial Day. I initially thought about using vinyl on a tray, but when I saw the placemats, I decided to try painting them with a stencil. 

Supplies needed for the painted placemats:

Placemats (I found these at Dollar Tree)
Paint (I used Red and White Acrylic from Plaid Crafts)
Small paintbrush or makeup sponge

Open up your Design Space software and create your saying or you can use my Red, White, & BBQ design found HERE. Cut your design on regular vinyl or stencil vinyl; I used a color that I had a lot of, since I do not have stencil vinyl on hand. Weed the letters from the vinyl, leaving the stencil. (I guess this is called reverse weeding?) Place the stencil on the center of your placemat. I just eyeballed it, but you can measure if you want it perfectly centered.

Take a small paintbrush and paint inside the stencil taking care not to apply too much paint, so it does not seep under the stencil. Let the paint dry, then carefully remove the stencil and use it on the next placemat.

Once the paint is dry, remove the stencil and you have a set of patriotic placemats that will add flair to your BBQ.
