We made two runners and crossed them over the center of the table; a full tablecloth or napkins could also be created using this technique.

What you need


How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Cut and hem linen to desired runner size. Wash, dry, and press runner.

Step 2

Print star-stencil templates. Place stencil paper on top and cut out with craft knife.

Step 3

Spread out kraft paper and lay runner flat on top of it.

Step 4

Fill spray bottle with a mix of 2 parts paint to 1 part water. Spray paint mixture all over fabric to create sporadic spatters of starlike dots (it’s a good idea to test this on a piece of scrap fabric first). Let dry.

Step 5

Put some undiluted paint in dish. Use stencil brush to gently dab the paint onto the stencil to paint larger stars at random points along the spatters for a constellation look. Follow paint instructions to set.
