we.create | striped table runner

run ’em like run ’em run ’em.

i recently created this striped table runner while decorating for a friend’s bachelorette party, and it turned out so cute, we used it at the wedding too! this can be applied in any color (why not try a warm palette for the summer, or go with an ombre effect!) and on almost anything (new curtains, anyone?!)

i used wide painter’s tape i picked up at my local paint supply store, a plain canvas runner (you can get yardage and leave it unfinished, too! i’ve been wanting to try burlap!!) and acrylic or fabric paint in the color of your choice. i find sponge brushes make application a cinch.

make sure you let the paint dry fully before peeling the tape.

now tell me, how will YOU use this super simple technique?

  1. Stripes are my favorite and they are always the perfect compliment for food. How about painting stripes on a canvas tote.

  2. would love to know your source for the canvas runner – did you finish/hem canvas from a fabric store, or did you buy the runner finished already? thanks!!

    • Just press firmly on the tape to make sure the lines are nice and clean. And send a pic when you’re done, I’d love to see how it comes out, A! 🙂

    • Hi Maria! I hand wash mine or go delicate but I would recommend using fabric paint, just make sure to grab the matte kind rather than pearl or glossy. Hope that helps! If you make it, show us!
