SO HAPPY that I did this project, I feel like it will really add to our minimal decor on our wedding day. I made two runners, one for our ceremony program table and one for our cake table (which the monogram is slightly smaller).
I bought some linen fabric at Joann's Craft Store and sewed all edges with 1/4" hem. I created a monogram using Photoshop and enlarged it using a copier and placed it under the fabric, tracing it lightly directly on the fabric using a pencil. I then applied plain white acrylic paint onto the fabric and painted "within the lines" of the monogram. **Important tip from PWer Nana Boop**: I placed wax paper in between my fabric and working surface so that the paint that seeped through the fabric would not get onto the table. It was easily removable from the back of the fabric once I completed painting.
Simple project, just time consuming.
