Gold Dotted Table Runner

**First up, I don't know if any of you remember filling out a survey for me a few months ago.  I kinda forgot about it myself, so thought I'd throw it out there again so if you didn't get a chance, please answer my 10 quick questions here**  

Looking for a super easy table runner tutorial?  You don't even have to sew this one!

1/2 yard fabric
Stitch witchery (or a sewing machine)
Gold paint
Circle furniture felt pad
Clear stamping block or scrap wood block

Cut the fabric into two long pieces, each 1/4 yard wide
Cut selvage off of one end of both strips

Wash and dry to create frayed edges, trim long threads.
Using stitich witchery or a sewing machine, attach the two strips at the ends that still have the selvage.

Lay fabric out on a protected surface so the paint doesn't seep through.

Attach felt pad to clear block and cover with gold paint--I added a couple of drops and spread it around with a brush.  I didn't even use fabric paint either, since the texture of it doesn't really matter.

Stamp pattern onto fabric.

Let dry, iron, and it's ready to use!



  1. Lovely tutorial! I know you didn't use fabric paint but what kind of paint did you use? Would acrylic work? Also, I have to say I love your blog's tagline! lol. Have a great weekend!

    1. Yep, just regular acrylic paint. Specifically, this one was a metallic paint by DecoArt called Venitian Gold. Hope that helps!
