How to make round jute place mats…..

Hi everyone!

Thank you for welcoming me back today! I wanted to show you how to make these really cute round jute place mats for your table settings!

My name is Jen & I blog over at City Farmhouse.

I got my PB catalogue in the mail last week!

Did you?!

This is my favorite one by far,

it feels refreshing to think about summer & entertaining again,

especially after a LONG winter, doesn’t it:)?!

So I thought I would share a really easy project from their latest catalog

to prepare you for those last minute impromptu summer{& spring} gatherings.

Pottery Barn Inspired Round Jute Placemats- City Farmhouse

You can find them HERE.

All you need for this project is 3/8″ jute and a hot glue gun.

Pottery Barn Inspired Round Jute Placemats- Start with jute

I used about 34″ feet give or take to make each 13″ across in diameter.

As I went around I pressed firmly before adding glue to the next length of jute.

The rustic texture adds a nice element to the table.

Pottery Barn Inspired Jute Placemats & Napkin Rings From Loop Pulls

Did you notice my napkin rings?

I also picked those up at the hardware store for just a few dollars.

The contrast works well with the beachy/cottage feel

& what a conversation piece:).

Have a beautiful week,




  1. Jen, I love your place mats and so will many others….I pinned them for you! Thanks for sharing your great project and have a great week!

  2. I love these. I was looking for placemats like these for my Thanksgiving table last year and gave up because I couldn’t find anything affordable. I definitely want to give this a try. Love the colors of the napkins and flowers too. Very pretty.

  3. These are great! I am going to try them. I found the 3/8″ jute rope on Amazon fairly inexpensive!

  4. What type of work surface did you work on to keep it flat yet not to stick to surface? I’m a beginner and sometimes find problems that I wonder if others encounter.

  5. These are great!
    The best part is, you can make them as large or small as you’d like!
    I have antique and vintage ironstone dishes which tend to be smaller and the large placemats and chargers typically look gigantic with my plates!
    You’re so smart!
    Thank you!
