DIY // Hand Stamped Geometric Table Runner

Lauren and I have been DYING to create hand stamped table cloths, pillows, anything...really! Finally, for our Mother's Day Brunch series, we got to make this super cute metallic stamped table runner. This is a very simple DIY that will add a bit of modern flair to your spring or summer table. We kept it simple using only triangles and gold paint, but there's really no limit to what you can do. My favorite part of this is that it doesn't have to be perfect to look good! =) 

SUPPLIES || 

100% cotton table cloth or runner

Jaquard Lumiere Acrylic Paint in True Gold

Geometric Stamp (triangles, diamonds, etc.)

Mini ink/paint roller

 

METHOD ||

Starting with a clean, ironed table linen, use the ink roller to apply a thin, even, fairly thin layer of paint onto the stamp. Be careful to not use too much paint to avoid it dripping or spreading! Press inked stamp firmly onto the fabric. For this look, we started with our larger stamp and spaced them evenly from each other along the runner - then took our smaller stamp to create scattered groupings throughout. (I think the more imperfect, the better for this craft.) We found our triangle stamps at Michael's, but you can also create your own shapes by carving into a potato, erasers, cork, just about anything!

 

 

 

MOTHER'S DAY b r u n c h // Blueberry Buttermilk Scones

Get the recipe for these delicious scones on The Granny Girls blog! They made these for our Mother's Day Brunch collaboration and they were ridiculously good. It was hard not to eat them before we were done shooting. They suggest serving them warm, in a basket with a cute DIY dip-dye napkin
