Bring the party from Bourbon Street to your home. These DIY applications of trims to everyday table decor are simple and festive.

Take everyday table top decor and create custom holiday looks. Everyday vinyl placemats with Mardi Gras colored sequins and Glass candle holders with metallic trims create an authentic Mardi Gras ambiance.

Placemats Supplies:
Vinyl Placemats
1/4” Wide Double Stick Tape-
Sequins- 14102-0AF

1: We used a gold vinyl pacemat, it’s a verastile color
for everyday or special occasions. We also love that there
is a pattern line, which makes it easy to follow when
appling sequins.
2: Take 1/4” double stitck tape and peel away film from
one side as you place and press along line on placemat.
Leave about 1/2” on each end to fold over to back


3: Take sequins and as you peel away top film from
tape, place sequins and press down as you go.


4: Fold over ends to back.


5: Continue same process on other sides.


6: Lay some heavy books on top to make sure the sequins
stay flat and stick.

When celebrations are over, pull back sequins and tape.
To remove excess residue, take some lemon oil on a
paper towel and rub away. The placements are now ready
for next celebration.
