Use these designs to beautifully decorate your table.
You will need
• sheets of cardboard in cream, white and beige
• tracing paper
• cream cotton sewing thread
Cut leaf shapes out of your cardboard and tracing paper. Get the family to help, as you will need a lot of leaves to create the right effect. Fold some of the leaves in half to create a three dimensional look. Leaving a long piece of thread at the start, machine stitch the leaves together into strings of various lengths. Drape the strings of leaves above your table or from a light fitting, or attach to the wall.
Use your cutlery as inspiration and draw a knife and fork at each place setting on the table runner using a Tippex pen, making them slightly bigger than the pencil outlines. You can make them as precise, naïve, intricately detailed or graphic as you prefer.
Tip Instead of drawing the cutlery, you can look for cutlery images on the internet, if you prefer. Print them on paper, cut out and secure to your tablecloth with glue.
