Back to School Ruler Place Mats


Looking for a quick and easy way to spice up your Back to School table?  These Ruler place mats are perfect for a fun and useful decoration.

I started with these yellow Stiff Foam Sheets I found at Hobby Lobby.  These sheets are 18 inches long by 12 inches wide and VERY stiff.  They weren't with the other felt sheets at Hobby Lobby.  They were actually on the back of that aisle, but should be in the general area at yours.

I placed the felt on my work area which is covered with a big cutting mat.  Using a bottle of Black Dimensional Fabric paint, I used the lines on the mat to draw my ruler marks on my felt.

This only took about 3 minutes to draw both sides.  I haven't decided whether I want to leave it like this or add the numbers, or not.  I'm leaning towards no numbers for the clean look, but am open to suggestions if you have any.

After giving it a "while" to dry, I used these with my Chalkboard menu chargers to coordinate and spice up my Back to School party dinner table.

Quick and easy and super cute!
