Party DIY {Star Spangled Table Runner}

Another day another DIY. We've decorated our windows, now it's time to add a splash to the food tables. I love to use table runners to give that pop of color and pattern. You don't have to worry about food spilling on them either making for easy clean-up. I keep a stash of them for every occasion but when one doesn't fit the bill, making a custom one is always fun. For this Fourth of July holiday, I was looking for a runner with a bit of flair. I wanted something with a traditional feel but in an unconventional way. The stars give that undoubtedly patriotic look but the aqua and artistic royal stars give it the updated look I was going for. Here's the how to...

:: Supplies ::
Table Runner
Royal Blue Acrylic Paint
Aqua Acrylic Paint
Red Acrylic Paint
Star Stencil
Paint Brush

:: Directions ::
1. Trace star stencil with pencil on to table runner in desired pattern.
2. Paint 1/3 of the stars aqua and 1/3 red.  Paint the remaining 1/3 with the royal paint. To achieve the abstract look, use the tip of your paint brush to paint the outline of the star feathering out the ends.

Happy Wednesday!
