DIY to Try: Dip-Dye Placemats
LA-based art director Bri Emery, founder of Design Love Fest, recently took an fun, easy, and chic DIY project that we all can tackle on a weeknight: dip-dye placemats. Dip-dyeing is as simple as it sounds, but Bri has elevated the art by using heavyweight linen fabric with an unfinished edge for a cool Californian aesthetic. We love the contrast of the elephant gray and bubble-gum-pink color pairing that Bri chose, and your options are practically endless where fabric dyes are concerned. You might even try mixing dyes to create a hue that's more perfect for your interiors or using shades similar in hue for an ombré effect. Head over to Design Love Fest for the full instructions and supply list.
