Geometric Paper Runner DIY

This Project doesn’t really need a step-by-step tutorial but sometimes it is nice to see how someone made something, even if it is simple. This project is really easy, you just need paint and brown paper.

Materials needed: Thick White Paint (creme), Roll of Brown Kraft Paper, medium size paintbrush.

Gor the Geometric Runners: Take a piece of paper and paint a line. From there paint other connecting lines. The key is to always make sure the end result is triangles. It is actually really fun to make, almost therapeutic.
For the Polka Dot Runners: We just used our fingers to make the circles. It was easy.

After the paint dries cut the paper just larger than the plate, we added a little ribbon cut on the ends to make it look finished.

    Cute Idea! I think sometimes people forget when they are throwing a party there are easy and cheap ways to decorate if things are handmade.

    I love the way that looks… I’m particularly fond of the polka dot runner. Perfect. I have a long table and think that would look fab!

    These are so easy & beautiful! I love the idea of switching it up with some gold paint too, for a Thanksgiving table. Thanks for such a wonderful, inexpensive idea, Jordan!

    What a fantastic and simple idea. I have noticed that almost all of your crafts or DIYs seem to involve brown paper these days. It is really cool to see how versatile it is.

    Love this idea! I looked for an orange table cloth yesterday for Halloween but could not find one. I must be too late, but this idea is even better. I already have this paper at home. Thank you for posting this!

    I love that. I have a huge roll of kraft paper that I use to send packages. This looks like a much better use of the paper. So cute!
