Dollar store craft alert! Look at this pebble mat I made from Dollar store pebbles and heavy wool felt I had on hand. I saw these in a local floral shop and knew I had to make one. Here is how I did it!
2 bags of river stone pebbles
1 placemat or suitable sturdy fabric cut to preferred size
(mine was 11" x 16 ")
1 tube e-6000 or liquid nails
lots of time...think mosaics
Time was the only real "investment" in this project, and it was so easy!
Spill out your pebbles and randomly "glue" with a small amount of adhesive. Go easy, you do not want this to show later. Start at one corner and work outward for the best result. Fit your pebbles together as close as possible. This is why I chose a stony color for my base fabric.
Let dry/cure for at least twenty-four hours.
This mat would be lovely on a table as a centerpiece with a plant on it or if you were very ambitious you could make a set as placemats!
