First we need a table runner. I got mine from Walmart in the kitchen section. We are also going to need a stencil. This pack of stencils can be found right in the craft section at your local Walmart. A great new selection of Plaid products is now available at Walmart. I am currently testing quite a few of them so get ready for some posts in the near future! I also added some jute webbing to my runner. It is available by the yard in the Walmart craft section.
The stencil was super easy to use. I picked which pattern I wanted. The great thing about this pack of stencils is you get a ton of variety all for one price. I laid the stencil on my runner and with a VERY dry stencil brush applied white paint.
After removing the stencil, you can see my awesome pattern. I then overlaid the stencil onto the last row so that I got a lined up pattern for my next set. This pattern reminds my of a quilt which is why I chose it.
I went all the way down both sides of the runner. This maybe took my 30 minutes. It was super simple and the stencil was a breeze to use. I did not use any stencil adhesive. I was just sure to make my brush VERY dry every time by getting rid of any excess. I also “pounced” my brush straight down.
