DIY Project: The Wrapping Paper Runner!


Fun, bright and lively are a few adjectives used when we have entertained with this wrapping paper runner!

Materials you'll need:

  • Wrapping Paper $3.99 (20 sq. ft. roll)

  • 4" Cardboard Square Box $1.99 each (We used 4 for this project)

  • Black Ribbon $ .99

  • Fabric paint $1.19

  • Black Card Stock $1.99 (6 cards)

  • Scissors

  • Tape

  • Table setting and potted plants/centerpiece

All materials were purchased at Michael's with the exception of the wrapping paper and black cards from Target.  We made this 4-person table setting for approximately $10.

*Optional: We used fabric paint to create texture and depth on the black place cards, but any light colored or silver pen will work*

 Step 1: Cut and center runner to desired table length and width. Make sure the runner is no less than 12" wide and that it hangs over the table ends at least 12".

Step 2: Wrap the gift box lids with the leftover wrapping paper from the runner.  Tie with black ribbon.

Step 3: Write guests' names on each place card with the fabric paint and lay flat to dry.


Step 4: Set table with gift boxes layered on top of plates. Finish with centerpiece and tableware.
