Another Table Runner





Hello friends,
I love grain sack table runners! I was searching ebay, and came across a few that I really would have loved to buy, but they were a little too expensive for my budget. I always have a drop cloth on hand for different projects, and I had more then enough to make a table runner. It's not the real deal, but I think It turned out ok!!


    I used barn red acrylic paint for the stripes.


 


   
   It looks great with a bowl of red apples!!
    
  


This is my favorite stencil brush from michaels. 
 



I just used my painters tape to measure how wide i wanted my stripes. 
The runner is 20  inches wide. I made mine 65 inches long. 

Have a great night!!!

This is great! Better than, "The real deal." So clever and I love the idea of using painter's tape. So many possibilities!

I think your table runner turned out just perfect. I think I would love to make one too, and the great thing is you can make the stripes any color you want.
