D-I-Y > Cereal box and milk carton placemat
description: What goes better with cereal than milk? Transform their containers into this easy-weavy placemat.
- empty milk carton
- empty cereal box
- dental floss (unsused is probably best)
1. First, make sure your milk cart is clean. Disassemble your carton and cut into ½" strips. Do the same with the front panel from your favorite cereal box.
2. Weave together. (see illustration below left)
3. Finish the edges by weaving dental floss around the perimeter so your beautiful new placemat doesn't come apart. Secure the floss by tieing the ends in a double knot. Now you have a new placemat made from freshly recycled materials!
