DIY Fridge Shelf Liners: Refrigerator Shelf Liners

Fridge Shelf Liners tutorial- SWEET HAUTE
How to make DIY Fridge Shelf Liners! Make these fantastic easy fridge shelf liners in a few minutes on an afternoon this weekend! I love attention to detail! Organizing, unique decor, and the little details in my house are what ‘make’ my home….well, ‘home sweet home.’DIY Refrigerator Shelf Liners! I wanted to share something that I made for the refrigerator…or as my daughter would say ‘frigafraider’ {so cute}…with DIY shelf liners this craft can be done quickly and inexpensively, two things that I look for when doing anything DIY for the home to create a nice result.

This is a tutorial about how to make your own DIY Fridge Shelf Liners, for the glass shelves in your refrigerator! Fridge Shelf Liners, Mats, or Coasters which are basically ‘liners’ made for your fridge shelves. These keep your glass shelves clean and instead of pulling out entire heavy glass shelf, you merely just take out the liner and wipe clean…and voila, fast and done!
Credit Card
Scrap Paper
I made them out of inexpensive place mats and adorable turquoise chevron self adhesive shelf liner that I got here. I ended up finding the place mats at Walmart on clearance but at regular price they are around $1 in my area, I’m not sure if they have any at the dollar store but go ahead check that out too.

If you can find place mats that are already rad, then you don’t need to put the extra effort in to transforming them with contact paper…just measure and cut to fit the shelf! I couldn’t find any that were already fabulous so I had to change the design and I am thrilled with the results! Yay!

Step 1:
Roll out your contact paper to measure the amount needed for each place mat.
Step 2:
Carefully peel back the wax layer away from adhesive and and place the longest edge of place mat gently without making bubbles in contact paper.
Step 3:
Use a credit card /plastic card to smooth the self adhesive shelf liner paper to each place mat to ensure that it adhered onto the mat smoothly and with no air bubbles or creases. Slow and steady as to not create bubbles.

Step 4:
For the refrigerator doors I simply traced the shelf with paper and then made a cardboard template ‘guide’ to cut the place mats into the correct shapes, then covered them with the chevron shelf liner paper!
It looks so cute every time I open the fridge for something….it makes me happy! 😉

I did six of these refrigerator door shelf liners, three on each side for a french door styled refrigerator. It came out really so nice. The bottom shelf I use for the kids to reach their water bottles and kid friendly snacks.

  1. Oh I love this idea!! It makes a boring fridge look ADORABLE! Thanks for sharing and thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday!

  3. That’s a great idea! But please tell me that you staged your fridge for this picture…it is way more organized (and way more healthy) than I think my refrigerator has ever been! 🙂

    1. HAHAHAHhahahah the answer is ‘yes’ and ‘no’….yes it was a little bit staged because I was loading everything back in and just took pictures before placing EVERYTHING back so you could really ‘see’ the liners well. Yet no….because I usually keep it semi-organized so I can see what I have on hand and we do eat those items regularly because we are into fitness/weight lifting. Eventually I would like to eat only fresh/raw but it’s a big task to take on. Thanks for visiting!

  22. Please tell me where exactly you used the place mats. I just don’t see how they fit on the square shelves.

    1. Hi, I cut the placemats to fit the shape of the glass portion only, most of the mats are still a rectangle shape. For the more coverage just buy more mats I only bought about 8 mats. Then used cardboard for the door shelves.

    2. Idk if my questions are going to you bc they aren’t showing on the blog, so i’m going to try this way one last time. I’m wanting to do this but am confused on if you have to use the contact/adhesive paper if you use the placemats? Thank you for your help, I hope this goes through…

  24. This is so freaking adorable….we just remodel our kitchen with new appliance and this would such a sweet and surprise for the people who still likes to raid my frig….thank you so much for sharing this brilliant idea….

  28. Thank you for this wonderful idea! But i’m confused about the contact/adhesive paper. Do you use it on the placemats or is that only if you can’t find the design you are looking for? Thank you for your help, can’t wait to try this!

    I like this project! It reminds me of something that would be going on in the kitchen of the tv show, “The Golden Girls”. I love that you can change the design to suit your mood or even to go with whatever current holiday we’re celebrating!
