All-Star Table Setting
Fashion a patriotic table setting with a recycled denim place mat. Cut a 12- by 15-inch rectangle from old denim clothing or fabric and fray the edges. To create a silverware holder, stitch a belt loop from old jeans to the center of the right side. Team the mats with crisp white or bold red dishes and a contrasting napkin customized with iron-on lettering or numbers. Slide a stick flag in with the silverware to tie it all together with festive flair.
