Wall Hanging/table Runner

3 Materials
45 Minutes

I love to do projects that cost next to nothing and use items I already have on hand. This project is so versatile and can be tailored to whatever taste or style you have in your home.

I really like it either way. But what a great way to fill an empty wall. I happened to have this woodland stencil on hand from a previous project but you could certainly use any stencil that fits your style.

I started with a piece of drop cloth. If you don’t have drop clothes on hand you’re missing out. They can be used for so many projects!! I used chalk paint. I’ve made pillow covers using this method before and the paint may fade slightly after many washings but it really holds up.

I didn’t see the edges of my fabric but you certainly could if you wanted a neater look. I first taped the two sides down so that my stencil didn’t slip.

When stenciling fabric you want to load your brush a little more than you would for a non porous surface as is soaks in quickly.

The stenciling goes quickly and in my opinion is very satisfying.

Once I finished stenciling all the way down I realized that I wanted to fill the whole thing in

Once dry I sewed a small piece of fabric on the back side so that I could slip a dowel through it when I want to use it as a wall hanging.

I think for now I’ll use it as a table runner. Just think of all the possibilities... stencil style, paint colors, fabric shape... I hope you enjoyed this project.
