In thinking about Easter I wanted to come up with something nice but simple to decorate our table. I considered a lot of different styles but then landed on wanting to do something that felt very natural so I chose to make a burlap table runner.
Then I saw this burlap runner in Hobby Lobby and I bought it. I wanted to jazz it up some though and I decided to paint white stripes on it. I used my quilt ruler to measure and marked out my lines with masking tape.
The paint I used is Americana Snow White. I dabbed it on with a sponge brush. I was heavier in some areas than others. I wanted it to have a less than perfect look to it… a little rustic.
As soon as I was done painting I took the tape off of the runner and allowed it to dry.
For one last touch I added some white pom pom trim. I like to think of it as my fun little nod to Easter.
And that’s it! A simple, neutral runner with a few touches to make it a little fun.
For Easter I put together a fun centerpiece in the middle of the table. I filled a glass hurricane with paper craft eggs. I got the eggs on clearance last year for $0.10 per carton. I used 5 cartons to fill the hurricane. You can actually dye these eggs using Easter egg dye kits but I opted to keep them white so the tablescape would have a neutral look.
To complete my tablescape I will use my white plates and some linen napkins I’m making. I’ll make them the same way show in my cloth napkin tutorial.
