DIY Table Runner

I did this project back in January during the Super Bowl. I wasn't super impressed with any fabrics I was running into a while ago and so I decided to make my own table runner. I took some white fabric that I had left over, used some heat bonding strips to "hem" the edges and then I went to work.

I decided on a lattice pattern. All I did was grab my masking tape and started taping. After I was full on food the Super Bowl had little appeal for me. After the taping was done I tried the runner out on our dining table. I purposely did not want the ends hanging off so low.

The next night I got to spray painting. I am not sure if it was because I had not washed the fabric, but most of the spray paint bounced off the fabric and I ended up with a thin coat of blue paint on every surface. Fortunately it washed right off, but not before my husband found blue on the bottom of his feet. Lesson learned.

 After taking the project outside to finish I ended up with this.

 I was pretty please.
