Bon appétit! Design your own table mats

Turn plain cork table mats into attractive accessories

Cork is a wonderfully versatile material. It's especially good for creative crafts as it can be cut cleanly and is easy to handle. And it has another excellent feature – it can be beautifully embellished using the right markers.

For this breakfast table idea, we chose to decorate placemats made of cork and turn them into attractive tableware by adding a stylish design using edding matt paint markers. These markers are perfect for opaque designs on rough surfaces and are available in a range of lustrous matt shades.
