Hey everyone, Katie here today with a project I am pretty excited about! I have always loved table runners and I recently had the idea to make one out of wood rounds for the Autumn season, and after I was done with it I thought “oh hey, I’m going to paint Christmas designs on the back and make it reversible!” which is how this project came about!
I used the Basswood Country Rounds Ornament/Coaster Assortment to make a long table runner, but I also think the same reversible idea would be awesome using some of the larger Basswood Country Rounds as place settings! Autumn on one side, Christmas on the other!
- Basswood Country Rounds Ornament/Coaster Assortment
- 18 gauge craft wire
- Acrylic Paints
- Paint Brushes
- If you’re making a table runner like me, lay out your wood rounds. I did them 3 wide x 8 long, you may want to change it depending on the size of your table.
- Use a marker to mark where to drill holes- basically you need a hole wherever one wood round touches the next.
3. I decided to paint them before attaching them all together. The how-to is pretty simple, just grab your paints and paint leaves onto one side and Christmas designs on the other side.
4. Drill a 1/4″ hole everywhere you made a mark.
5. Next take 4″ pieces of craft wire, and attach all of the wood rounds by wrapping the wire through the holes, like jump rings.
It was actually super easy, if a little time consuming. Using the same idea with larger wood rounds as individual placemats/place settings would definitely be quicker, but I do love the look of this table runner!

Hey everyone, Katie here!
Since we are featuring clocks here on the Walnut Hollow blog this month, I had to make a clock using Walnut Hollows new Hexagon Wall Decor as a gift for my Mom! My Mom is a quilter and loves making little sewn hexagons and I knew this would go perfect in her sewing studio!
- 1 Small Hexagon Wall Decor
- Creative Versa Tool Wood Burner
- Stamping Tips
- Universal Point
- Acrylic Paints
- #1/2″ Paint Brush
- Paper Hexagon
- Sawtooth Picture Framer Hanger
- 1/4″ Clock Movement
- Use a hexagon template and pencil to trace a hexagon pattern onto the backside (now the front side for this project!) of the Hexagon Box.
2. Use the Creative Versa Tool with the Universal Point to burn the hexagon pattern into the wood. I love the versa tool for wood burning, combined with the universal tip I get nice clean lines without much effort.
3. Use acrylic paint to color in the hexagons. Use whatever color scheme you’re loving/matches your decor the best. I used 4 different colors and left a few hexies the unpainted solid wood.
4. Once you have all of the hexagons colored in, paint on numbers for the clock face, outline them with black to make them stand out.
5. Use stamping tips (they come with the Creative Versa Tool!) to add pattern to the different hexagon shapes. I like this because it almost makes the different hexagons look like fabrics.
6. Drill a small hole in the center of your hexagon to place your clock movement through and follow the instructions on the movement packaging on how to install the hands.
(At this point I also decided to paint the frame around the hexagon.)
Hang and enjoy! I love that this clock is so much more unique than your normal old store bought clocks!
