You might have noticed the seriously orange tablecloth that has been popping up in my photos lately. Even though I have a craft room, I still end up doing most of my crafting at the kitchen table. :P
Don’t get me wrong, I love my pumpkin orange tablecloth, but it needed a little something to break up all that color. Something like a stenciled burlap table runner/scarf.
To make my stenciled table runner/scarf, I used my trusty Martha stencils, fabric paint, and an old Christmas decoration made of burlap.
I took out the thread holding the burlap bag together, frayed the edges, and laid it out flat to begin stenciling.
I don’t think I am too crazy in thinking that this stencil looks a bit like a fall mum. Am I?
I stenciled on some “mums” in my fall color palette. You can still see some of the dumb Christmas design peeking though the burlap, but not too badly.
The runner/scarf/whatever adds a nice rustic touch to the table and tones down the orange a bit.
I originally received the Martha Stewart stencils and paint as part of a paid campaign. For a full disclosure, click HERE.
