Halloween Burlap Table Runner

Halloween Burlap Table Runner

It should come as no surprise that I love decorating my house for holidays. I don’t just mean Christmas, but all holidays (Hellooooo. Remember my mantel madness? V-day, St. Patrick’s Day, Spring, Flag Day, and Fall).  Partially, it is because I can’t sit still, I get bored easily, and it reminds me of elementary school, and I looooved elementary school, because my fabulous teachers were always changing their bulletin boards and room decor with the seasons. As a kid, it made every part of the year special and festive. As a mom, I want my kids to have that same kind of excitement and wonder I felt about the calendar year (or I just want an excuse to do something).

Two weeks ago, I busted out the fake cobwebs, spiders, and pumpkins, and I made– with Finn’s help– this Halloween Burlap Table Runner.

 Here’s what you’ll need:

- Burlap Runner (or just burlap cut to the size of a runner)– I got my burlap from http://www.burlapfabric.com–; I can’t stop raving about this site! 

-Paint brushes

- a Black Sharpie

- Black craft paint

- A stencil of a bat

Here’s what you’ll do:

- Trace the bats on the border of the runner.

- If you have a helper, allow the helper to fill in the bats with black paint.

-Write a Halloween saying or poem on the runner.

- Done!

 

Pretty easy, and pretty cute, don’t you think?

 Are you a seasonal decorator? Or am I just a weirdo? 

Wait. Don’t answer that second question :)
