I always love setting up a beautiful tablescape for the holidays, and that usually includes some kind of table runner, but this year, I didn’t have one that matched the colours I wanted to use, so I made my own! It’s really easy to make a beautiful table with some paint and creativity!

I’m a fan of moody colours. My whole home will be decked out with rich and moody tones this year, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! When I decided to paint a few pieces for our Christmas table, I went to Home Hardware and stayed within that theme by choosing a few of lovely Beauti-Tone colours called, In the Black (UP77-3), Monogram (D31-1-042403), and Straight Up, Two Olives (UP73-4).

How to Make your DIY Christmas Table Runner

Materials Needed

Step-by-step Tutorial for your Christmas Table Runner

Guys! I always get soooo excited to see what a little bit of paint can do! You will not believe how simple this projects is. Read on to see how you can make your painted Christmas table runner!

Table Runner Paper Roll

All you need for this project is a some white paper (I bought this roll from IKEA!), some leaf stamps, and two colours of green paint -I used Monogram and Straight Up, Two Olives. First, I cut my paper so it was a bit longer than my table.

Christmas Leaf Stamp

I bought these Eucalyptus leaf rubber stamps from Etsy (first eucalyptus stamp, second eucalyptus stamp) which will look gorgeous when painted on our white paper roll. Then I used a dollar store foam brush to lightly brush paint on the stamps, and then stamped all along the edges of my table runner.

Stamping Table Runner

I took about 2/3 of a cheesy Christmas movie to finish all of the stamping, lol. Your guests won’t even know it was stamped until they get up close!

Finished Christmas Table Runner

Here’s a few more pictures of our beautiful Christmas table runner this year! I have to take very good care of that table runner, because I’m hoping it will last until Christmas Day. Or I’ll just have to watch another sappy Christmas movie and make another one, lol.
