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!
