How can I reuse or recycle placemats and coasters?
We’ve had an email from Sue:
I have a pile of old placemats and coasters, some with a cork backing and some felt-backed and I just don’t know what to do with them.
I have used a few for my kids to paint and stick on but I’d love some more ideas.
We’ve got a placemat underneath the cats’ food dishes in the kitchen (to stop food spillages/flickages from going all over the floor) but all the other ideas I can come up with – using as drip trays under paint cans or plants – need them to be more tray-like instead of being flat.
So any suggestions?
