It’s the most wonderful time of the year, but it’s also the busiest! If you’re anything like me, the only big project I do in November and December is decorating the house for Christmas! But how about a project that takes under an hour?
For a few weeks, I’d been looking for a couple of pillows and a table runner that reflected my Snowy-Woodland Christmas theme for this year. I found some pillows but they were pricy and I didn’t find even one table runner that would work for the kitchen table, sooooo, I decided to make some!
It was so easy and super fast, which is exactly what a project should be during the holidays!
All you need for this project is:
*Stencil (I got this one at Hobby Lobby)
*Craft paint (I used white & pearl white and mixed them for a shimmery effect)
*A foam roller. (Hobby Lobby)
*Pillows & burlap for the table runner
Put a piece of cardboard under the fabric & tape the stencil onto the front of the fabric.
Put a little paint on a paper plate or a piece of cardboard and mix your colors, then load your roller, rolling off the excess to you have just a tad on the roller…
Roll carefully over your stencil and them move it and repeat!
Eyeball the pattern and add more stencils until it looks just right!
For the table runner, before I stenciled… I cut burlap to the correct length and width then frayed the edges and sewed a zig zag stitch all the way around to keep the ends from fraying more!
This took under an hour!
And I love them! (The Husband came home and wrinkled his brow and said: “Robin, I swear you’ll end up painting every single thing in this house before it’s all said and done. Don’t you dare paint my leather chair” …)
He acts like I paint a lot! 🙂
