Please pardon Mr. Sam who just couldn't stay out of the picture.
So, recognize the tablecloth? It's a drop cloth!
Love the feel and the look, very vintage and farm-y.
The tablerunner is five sheets of coordinating scrapbook paper that I sewed around each edge of, then glued together. The center of the middle paper has a sewn on smaller circle that came already die cut. Easy.
I used my Fiskars border punch to create a scalloped edge around the center paper. All total, this took me about 15 minutes to make...with sewing. You can skip that part if you like, just decorate it like a scrapbook page! I love using my scrap stuff for home dec...so frugal!
Remember the pumpkin from a previous post??
I added gingham around my candle holders (again, leftover fabric). The napkins are sewn from leftover fabric and tied with cotton twine.
I created little pockets for my utensils. I did a quick sew around the edges and used my
$1 stamp from Walmart to embellish it. I stamped it onto notebook paper and glued it on. A quick snip of some green ric-rac (stapled on!) finished it off. I added a layer of burlap under my china to give it a country look. I just cut up some burlap I had and tucked it under there.
Ball Mason jars serve as drink cups...embellished with cotton twine and little "enjoy" stamp.
Simple and country.
Just like I like it.
Again, think of all the scrapbooking papers/supplies out there...this would be super easy to re create for your holiday table...you could customize it to you colors and theme.
Thanks for looking!!
and please wish Ms. Madi a
HAPPY 2ND BIRTHDAY!!!
Happy day to all!
