Laminated Place Mats: A How-To

One project that’s taken me a ridiculously long time to get around to have been my high-chair place mats. I finished painting the chair weeks ago, and have had all the supplies. For some reason I just couldn’t get motivated to do this until today! It’s a super simple project, and you can use it for high-chairs (if you’re a mama too) or for traditional laminated place mats. All you need is a little scrap fabric, an iron, and some iron-on laminate. Ready to make your own? Here’s how!

  1. This is so awesome! Def a project I can get behind with an infant in the house (and another on the way)! And it seems simple enough that even a complete klutz like me can do it

    1. I store them in a kitchen cabinet with some of the baby supplies we received as gifts that our daughter isn’t old enough to use yet. I wouldn’t recommend rolling them up or folding them, but they would store great under your plates or other items in your kitchen cabinets.

  2. I am so glad I stumbled across this! I just bought a vintage wooden high chair today that I am going to redo, and I was wondering how I was going to handle the tray. I wasn’t too comfortable with the food on the wood, even after it’s painted. Now I am gonna have to go find fabric before I pick out what color I will paint the chair! LOL!

  3. I know this is an old post but I was wondeRing if you know anything about this high chair. I have the exact same one but it’s missing the tray. do you know where I might be able to find one?

    1. I’m sorry Vanessa, I bought it on craigslist I think? That or a thrift shop, it was secondhand. I don’t know the brand or where to get a new tray.
