I’m joining up again with a few of my favorite blogger friends today to share with you all a Christmas or Holiday craft involving burlap. Burlap is all the rage and there are so many possibilities with this little piece of “cloth.” Today I decided to take a burlap table runner and give it a little spice!
It was a very simple project that I already had all the materials for! Doesn’t that make it so much better?! I created a stunning stenciled lace wall in my guest room with a stencil I had received from Cutting Edge Stencils. You can see the stenciled wall here.
I love re-using items and so I thought it would be fun to stencil the beautiful design onto a burlap table runner. I originally planned to use gold spray paint but unfortunately, that didn’t really turn out that great.
You couldn’t see the gold and, as they mention on their website, it’s not best to use spray paint with their stencils. Since it wasn’t very visible I was able to just turn the table runner over and start from scratch.
All you need:
- Burlap Table Runner
- Foam Roller
- Paper Plate
- Paper Towels
- Wine (every project turns out better with wine, right?!)
It’s super simple and all you do is fill your roller with paint but then roll off some of the excess paint so it doesn’t bleed a ton. I did find out that this process is completely different than stenciling a wall or piece of furniture.
When stenciling a wall or furniture you want to roll off most of the paint onto a paper towel so that it doesn’t bleed but with the table runner I didn’t wipe much off as the burlap soaked in a bunch of the paint.
You also need to press firmly (which you aren’t supposed to do with the wall or furniture) so that it soaked up most of the paint. I also wasn’t going for a perfect look like I was with the feature wall in my guest room. I wanted it to look a little “worn.”
Once I stenciled on the first circle I kind of eyeballed where I wanted to place the second circle. Note: I did start the stencil in the center of the table runner.
Let it dry and then you are done! Super simple and fairly quick! I love how it has accented the few different tablescapes I’ve created since making it!
Here is my fall tablescape and if you click to see the entire post I have a delicious recipe for Pecan Pie Spice Cake!
Here is one I recently created with Christmas decor!! I’m so excited that we are almost into the month of December!!
