French Country Fall Stenciled Table Runner

My table runner is a French inspired table runner for fall. It is a Quick and Easy project with no sewing involved.
To make the table runner you'll need:
•Deco Art Americana Decor Stencil, The French Inn
•Black Paint
•Roll of Burlap
•Removable Painter’s Tape
•Stencil Brush
•Black Lace Trim
•Fabri Tac Glue
1.Make sure to lay paper down before stenciling on burlap.
2.Tape around stencil with removable painter’s tape so that the stencil won’t move.
3.Using a stencil brush, dip just the tip of your brush into the paint. Tap off excess paint.
4.Stenciling is a “dry” brush technique.
5.Apply paint with stencil brush in a straight up and down motion called stippling.
6.Clean Stencil between each image.
7.Glue lace trim onto each edge of the runner using Fabri Tac glue.
Burlap is a rough fabric. You may want to add a layer of fabric or felt underneath the runner to protect the finish of your table.

Because I really liked how the table runner turned out…
I decided to create a pillow for the comfy chair in my dining room
I used muslin as a lining for the burlap and on the reverse side of the pillow.
