It is Krista from The Happy Housie back again and I am so excited to be here today
sharing this super easy (and thrifty!) DIY Dropcloth Table runner with you!
For this project you will need:
a dropcloth (or similar fabric)
- painters tape (I used Frog brand)
- spray paint in your colour of choice – I used Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Flat Black
I started out with a plain ol’ dropcloth that I picked up at my local hardware store.
I think I paid about $15 for a 4 foot by 12 foot piece.
That translates to around $4 a yard, give or take.
I cut one long strip 18″ wide and 84″ long (because my table is 72″ long
and I wanted an overhang on each end). I let the edges fray naturally because
I don’t plan to wash this, but you could definitely sew the edges or use some
no-sew hemming tape to secure them first.
I used Frog Tape to tape out my lines, spacing them evenly by using a spacer piece
that I moved as I taped my way down the length of the runner.
Then I sprayed away with my flat black spray paint and let it dry about an hour… Done!!
The perfect addition to our Halloween table, though I think it will transition nicely
into regular ol’ Fall come November.
I have a few other Halloween and Fall Projects I would love to share with you-
hop over and visit me at The Happy Housie to see what I have been up to lately…
