Rather than shopping for the perfect table runner to complete your fall tablescape, create your own to perfectly pair with your style. Your fabric and stamp choices make this a very customizable craft—we personalized ours to complete our festive fall table setting.
- Start by cutting your potato in half lengthwise. Be as careful as possible to cut the potato straight so that your design will stamp evenly onto your fabric.
- Trace your designs onto the flat side of each potato half using a pen or pencil. Be sure to press hard enough to make an impression into the potato.
- Using the paring knife, cut away a layer of the potato outside the design, so that only the design remains raised.
- Dip the raised design into the paint, and stamp onto the table runner. Press firmly into the fabric, rolling the stamp from side to side to ensure a complete transfer of your design. Repeat this process until your design is complete.
Tip: Decide on a pattern before beginning. Consider stamping the design along just the perimeter to create a structured border, or follow a random pattern to create a whimsical flow.
