Clay Coaster

I’ve always been a big fan of Scandinavian inspired art. I especially love its minimal design and patterns inspired by nature. My dining room wallpaper has a very distinct Scandinavian feel, so I was inspired to bring that same kind of design to my table with a homemade table runner.

Materials & Tools

  • Canvas table runner
  • Felt
  • Stencil
  • Craft knife and mat
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Felt tip pen for tracing



We used a more traditional color palette here, but you could always add some brighter colors into the mix. Use the stencil to trace directly onto the runner and then go over the shape with embroidery. You could even use the stencil to paint onto the runner, or use patterned fabric instead of felt. No matter what you do, get creative and make it yours!
