Easter Table Runner DIY

| |

I made a beautiful Easter Table Runner using my newest technique I call paint and stamp. There is very little artistic skill required.

All you need is some fabric, some paint, and a stamp or two. This project is perfect for beginners. So let’s get creative and have some fun and make an Easter Table Runner that you can use year after year.

A Spring Easter Table Runner

I have wanted to make a spring table runner for the past month. I also wanted it for my Easter table but thought it might make sense to make one I can use for the entire spring, and maybe even summer, season.

So that’s why I chose flowers!

I made a pillow a few months ago using these same stamps from Iron Orchid design. You can see the pillow in my blog post titled Flower Pillow DIY.

I used an Iron Orchid Design Chrysanthemum stamp which made the process so easy! All you do is stamp the runner, then paint over the designs, and then stamp them again. Very little artistic talent is required. I promise.

I absolutely love how this turned out and it looks amazing on our Easter table.

Here is what you need to make this Easter table runner.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Iron the table runner and layout the stamps to determine a design for your runner
  • In order to make the painting step very simple, choose a light color of paint and roll paint on the stamp with the brayer.
  • Stamp the design on your table runner. This will give you an outline to paint your design.
  • As soon as you are done with the stamps, place them in warm soap and clean off the paint. They are very easy to clean if you do this before they dry completely.

  • Mix your paints. I didn’t want to paint my flowers all one color so I mixed two shades of three different colors, lavender, yellow, and blue for the flowers. Plus, I also used two shades of green for the leaves.
  • I made the centers of each flower either darker or lighter. I followed the stamp design to see where the petals were but knew my painting did not need to be perfect.
  • You can see how loose I painted this. Just know, anyone can paint this!
  • Once the paint is dry, the next step is to add the stamp design on top of the painted flowers. I used purple paint but you could also use any darker shade of paint.
  • Use the brayer to add a layer of paint to the stamp. Be sure to get enough paint on the stamp, but not too much.

It is amazing how good this looks once you add the darker stamp on top of the paint. Even if your paint isn’t close to perfect, it looks amazing.

  • See the leaf stamp above? I placed it on the green paint, then used a second clean brayer to gently add pressure to the stamp to transfer the paint onto the runner.
  • Let the runner dry and then iron it to set the paint.

    So, so pretty! I absolutely love all the different ways you have used the Iron Orchid Designs. They are beautiful, and makes me want to do all of them. Just inspiring!! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Love this runner. I am so happy you introduced me to the world of IOD. I bought molds and stamps and made pots following your instructions. It was fun and simple for me. I look forward to more of your posts. I am new to your blog but it is one of my favorites. I can’t wait to read it each time it’s in my mailbox. Have a great day!

  3. After each new diy I always say “This is my favorite”, but I love this one so much! The plates with that runner are fabulous. This tablescape has to be my favorite one yet. One question though – after the initial white stamp and then colors painted loosely, what color did you stamp at the end to get the darker outlines? Purple?

  4. You and all of your DIYs are so inspirational! This runner might be my favorite. I love those colors! Do you ever stop or do you always go like that battery bunny all the time? Always happy to see one of your posts pop into my email. Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. I know it will be beautiful!
