Ahh the Bezier's table runner. A fun summer tablecloth, a subdued palm tree-esque print, and only $208 before tax and shipping. It might as well be free!
But wait, do those trees look familiar to anyone else?
They are the same ones from the Three Palms Pillow we did a DIY of over a year ago!
Using this same technique to make a table runner would be even easier than making the pillow, and a quick way to jazz up your table for any upcoming barbecues. For those too lazy to click through to the original post, you will need:
Linen (yardage depends on your table)Sharpies
Using your Sharpies, scribble the rough shape of the trees out onto your linen. Perfection is not necessary, or even encouraged!
Once you're all sketched up, about 5 small drops of rubbing alcohol on each tree help achieve the soft, dyed look of the Anthropologie original.
Once it has dried overnight, go in and add any extra details lost!
Bam. Table runner.
Let's do a price breakdown:
Linen - $9 yard, need three yards. However, Joann has a 50% off cut of fabric right now, making the linen $13.50
Sharpies - $7
Rubbing alcohol - $1
Obviously, this could be done cheaper with cotton or muslin, and already owning Sharpies and rubbing alcohol brings the cost down as well.
Stay tuned for a few more easy DIYs of heinously expensive Anthro products soon!
