Create a one of a kind hand-painted DIY table runner for any holiday using supplies you probably already have on hand
I’m not one to go crazy for holiday decorating when it comes to the smaller holidays like Valentine’s Day. BUT I am a momma of three little ones who love all of the whimsy and excitement that holiday decor brings. So, I try to incorporate seasonal touches using budget-friendly DIY decor like this hand-painted DIY table runner.
This hand-painted table runner is a cheap and easy DIY solution that uses only paint (or paint pens) and wrapping/kraft paper.
My original inspiration came from this DIY Table runner by my talented friend Arin at arinsolangeathome.

Kid-Friendly Valentine’s Day Tablescape
Last year I threw a small Valentine’s Day themed lunch for my kiddos complete with DIY heart-shaped pizzas and a candy/dessert bar. The DIY table runners were the perfect layering element to dress up the tablescapes.
To create the table runner’s all you need is some kraft paper or plain wrapping paper. Using leftover paint and craft paintbrushes or a Sharpie paint pen you can create a custom, one of a kind table runner to fit any occasion.
Simply cut the paper roll to size, paint on your design of choice and let dry! So simple and easy to customize for virtually any holiday or party theme.
Embroidery Wreath Decor
To create the hanging display on the mirror I just sandwiched two sheets of coordinating tissue paper in between an embroidery hoop, trimmed off any excess and hung them with clear fishing line.
Here is another look for a kid-friendly tablescape that I’m using this year.
To complete this look I trimmed down some fallen branches from the yard, shoved them in a vase with some floral foam and hot glued on some cut-out hearts, Xs & Os.
These hand-painted DIY table runners are fantastic because you don’t have to worry about them getting stained. You just toss away when you’re done with the holiday or save for next year if it’s in good shape.
Overall, an adorable Valentine’s Day tablescape that cost me absolutely nothing but an hour or so of my time!
