Fall is in the air and we all know what that means . . . new fall projects! I found pretty orange burlap in the remnant section at Hobby Lobby and couldn't resist the price - a couple of dollars for almost two yards of fabric. Hot d ...! I've always wanted to make a whimsical fall table runner, something quirky and different. If you follow me on my blog, you know I can do quirky and different.
I'm not good at drawing so I copied a leaf and blew it up as much as I could to fill a 8½"x11" sheet of paper. Then I cut it out and used it as a pattern on my burlap which is really a vibrant shade of orange. So beautiful!
I doubled the fabric and cut two out at a time. I guess I could have made more than one pattern . . .
After cutting out the leaves, I outlined the edges with white puffy paint and let dry for four hours following the directions.
It took about three bottles to outline 28 leaves.
After the puffy paint dried I held a steam iron over the leaves to puff the paint.
Next, I laid out the leaves in a pattern with a row of leaves down the center, flanked by leaves on each side, making them all touch. I glued where they met with Aileen's Extra Tacky Glue.
I love the design!
Do you think it's quirky and different?
It sure didn't take long to make!
And I still have a little less than a yard of the orange burlap left. Who knows what I'll make next!
Take a little time to enjoy,
