18 G R E AT E R N A S H V I L L E H O U S E & H O M E & G A R D E N ™ By Brandon Nunnally & Melissa Bowen, Co-Owners @ AR Workshop Nashville W e are so ready for spring here at AR Workshop Nashville. Bring on the warmer weather, spring flow- ers, and baby bunnies just in time for Easter! In this issue we thought we would share one of our favorite DIY Home Décor projects, a "shabby- chic"-inspired bunny table runner. This project is so ver- satile and can be pulled back out year-after-year to bring a breath of spring to your home décor. Materials Needed 1. Burlap Table Runner (18-in. wide x 10-. long) 2. Cra Paint 3. Foam Brush (1-in.) 4. Paper 4. Scissors 5. Cra Pom Pom (1-in.) 6. Glue (Mod Podge or hot glue) Instrucons 1. Begin by printout out a bunny silhouee (or any spring design you prefer—baby chic, flower, etc.) on a printer at the sise you would like to use it on the table runner. 2. Cut out the middle of the bunny silhouee, leaving a paper stencil to lay on the burlap. 3. Cut the burlap table runner the length of your table plus 1 foot on both ends so it can hang off the ends of the table. 4. Using the foam brush and bunny cutout, paint the inside of the paper template onto the burlap, being sure the paper stays in place. You might want to tape or pin a couple of the outer edges of the stencil pat- tern to the burlap to prevent if from moving 5. When you've completed the painted image on the burlap, remove the paper and let the paint dry for 10 minutes. 6. When the paint is thoroughly dry adhere the pom-pom for the bunny's tail to the burlap and let it dry for several min- utes. You can also add addional details to the burlap including painted polka dots or fabric cutout polka dots from scrap fabric you may have. You could use fabric scraps to create small Shabby Chic Spring Burlap Table Runner
