DIY Craft: How to Make a Fall Table Runner
Howdy Mom It Forward readers! My name is Tanya, and I am sharing a craft project with you today that is perfect for your fall decor and entertaining. Are you ready to get crafty together and make something pretty that's easy on your budget, too? Let's get started.
How to Make a Fall Table Runner
- Bamboo table runner
- Stencil (I used a Martha Sterart damask stencil)
- Acrylic paint in a fall color (I used deep orange)
- Pain Pouncer
I began with a bamboo table runner that I found at a local discount home store for less than $6.00. I used a Martha Stewart damask stencil, some deep orange acrylic paint, and a paint pouncer. I measured my stencil in comparison to the table runner, and loading a bit of acrylic paint onto the dry sponge pouncer. I applied the paint by gently pouncing the brush over each area.
After the paint was dry, I decided to do a little fall table-scaping with pumpkins, apples, garlands, and all of my favorite fall pretties (it is so hard to wait until the leaves begin to fall to decorate each year!).
Another beautiful alternative to an already made table-runner is a long piece of burlap. Just measure how long you would like the runner to be, and give yourself a couple of inches of room on the ends and each side, you can pull the strings to fray each edge and give it a lovely rustic look. Once you are done, do a little trimming, and in less than an hour, you have a beautiful one-of-a-kind table runner that you can use until you are ready to decorate for winter.
