DIY Geometric Table Runner

StephanieCollinsPhotography_DIY_May-24-2013_02

Awhile ago, a shoot I styled and designed along with Stephanie Collins of Flipbooth LA was featured on 100 Layer Cake. During the planning, I learned that Stephanie knew how to “screen print” at home and I immediately knew we needed to document her skills for a killer DIY post to go along with it. What good is a wedding inspiration post, if we can’t give them some hands on tutorials, right?! So, I thought I’d share this fab tutorial with you all in case you missed it! This table runner is not only perfect for a Boho Art Deco wedding, but it would be so perfect for your next  dinner party! So, check it out and let me know what you think!

Instructions:

1) Cut fabric into table runner and finish edges (or use pre-made table runner)
2) Cut vinyl tiles into desired shapes (we went with fun geometric shapes that were cut without templates)
3) Roll fabric paint directly onto vinyl tiles
4) Press paint side of tile down onto fabric (we just made up the design as we went)
5) Lift tile carefully
6) Repeat with same shape or others as desired
7) Let dry
8) Iron paint to set
