Strawberries!!!


Strawberry Table Runner

I LOVE strawberries and never knew what to do with the empty baskets - I got the idea to cut them apart and make a stencil for a creative table runner!

What You'll Need
Table runner, 100% cotton
Strawberry basket
Scissors
Newspaper
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint - Matte Berry Red, Holiday Green
Tulip Fabric Spray Paint - Neon Green
Rubber stamp with strawberries
2 Make-up sponges

How to Make It
1. Prewash the table runner to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener in the washer or dryer. Place newspaper on work surface.
2. Cut basket into sections. Lay across table runner.
3. Shake Neon Green spray paint. Spritz on table runner, carefully moving basket sections as needed around table runner. Let dry.
4. Dab make-up sponge into Berry Red paint. Dab on strawberry sections of stamp. Using a second make-up sponge, dab into Holiday Green and dab on leaf sections of stamp. Press stamp firmly and evenly on table runner. Remove. Apply paint for each stamping. Let dry.
