Easy Valentine’s Table Runner (no sew!)

I love decorating for Christmas but oh the other holidays…sometimes I just can’t! But then I get onto Pinterest and see all the cute, pretty Valentine’s decorations and it’s hard to resist. I decided a simple table runner would do the trick, put together with some pretty faux tulips in a white pitcher that’s always on the table anyway. You will love this project- you may already have everything you need like I did!

Easy Valentine’s Table Runner (no sew!)

I love decorating for Christmas but oh the other holidays…sometimes I just can’t! But then I get onto Pinterest and see all the cute, pretty Valentine’s decorations and it’s hard to resist. I decided a simple table runner would do the trick, put together with some pretty faux tulips in a white pitcher that’s always on the table anyway. You will love this project- you may already have everything you need like I did!

First, I cut out a strip of burlap from a larger piece that I already had. It’s approx. 10″x30″ but use whatever size you need for your table. I gathered some craft paint, glue gun, lace trim (rick rack would be cute too!) and some heart-shaped cookie cutters. I placed a cookie cutter in the corner of the burlap and carefully dabbed the paint into the shape. Lift it carefully, and then repeat your pattern. It might be a good idea to draw an outline before painting to lay out the pattern you would like. Once it was all dry, I hot-glued the trim around the edges and then it was ready for my table!

Easy (but cute!) cards for the kids to do…

As I was planning out our Christmas teacher gift, I wanted something that the kids could add for a personal touch. At Michaels I picked up a pack of blank red cards in the dollar section and then a couple of packages of 3D Christmas stickers which were 50% off! The kids loved it and got very creative. They had a great time and it also kept them busy for a bit while I worked on dinner. Super simple, fun and inexpensive!
