Last year I showed you some of my "fall decor," which was basically a bunch of plastic pumpkins I had purchased at Hobby Lobby for 75% off (I think each pumpkin was between 25 and 75 cents). I did pretty much the same thing this year - just scattering the little pumpkins all over the house. But last night I kind of went crazy and decided I wanted something more (it was a dramatic enough moment that it called for italics). So I made a fall table runner. Here it is:
- Sewing machine (optional - you could hand-stitch or leave the runner with a raw edge)
- Stencil paper (or anything you can use to make a stencil)
- Acrylic paint
Basically, you just cut and sew the drop-cloth into the size you want your table runner to be. I used a bright orange thread to sew the edges because I thought it would be fun for the paint and leaves to match.
Simple, yes? And it didn't cost me a penny since I had all the supplies on hand. Anyone else throwing in some last minute fall decorating since it's basically Christmas season next week?
