Lemon Stamped Table Runner

The start of summer means outdoor gatherings are in full swing. We’ve all been waiting to spend time with friends and family in the backyard, under a canopy of trees or next to a colorful garden. Informal outdoors entertaining is all about fresh flowers, brightly hued table coverings and delicious food. This easy DIY pays tribute to one of my favorite summertime treats - fresh lemonade. We decided to turn some of our retired sheets and long curtains into bright coverings for our serving tables using a simple stamp technique with lemons.

Materials & Tools

Instructions

TIPS FOR INSPIRATION

  • Practice on a piece of scrap fabric first.
  • Once you find the amount of paint and pressure that produces a design you like, move on to your party fabric.
  • Each time you stamp, you will need to reapply the fabric paint to the lemon stamp, to ensure you get a similar design every time you stamp.
