Didn’t you just love the peach and sage green color story from yesterday’s post? Today we have a new DIY project for you: the adorable Mr and Mrs table runner designed by Rachel for the Farm to Table inspiration shoot. This burlap runner would be such a sweet touch to highlight the head table at a wedding, or you could even customize the runners with your new monogram or last name and use them on
all your tables.
of burlap 8 feet long by 18 inches wide (for a 6ft long table or 60” round)
Black matte decorator’s spray paint
Exacto knife and cutting board
Blue painters tape or duct tape
Use the stencil template provided and decide how big you would like the letters. For an exact replica, this will need to be printed on 11 x 18 paper on a large scale printer found in most offices or copy shops.
Cut out the stencil with your exacto knife making sure to preserve the inside bubbles of the ‘R’ and the ampersand.
Iron the burlap and lay out the stencil so that it is centered on the ‘&.’ Tape it down and carefully spray paint inside the stencil repeating three times along the length of burlap. The vintage look is achieved by a light hand with the spray paint.
monograms at a wedding and these mossy initials are a playful approach to incorporating the idea in your rustic or country wedding. It’s a pretty simple project that can be completed in an hour or two once you’ve assembled the materials. You just need a cardboard letter of any size, artificial moss, and a glue gun. All of these materials can be found at any large craft store such as Michael’s.
Trace the letter onto the back side of the “moss” and then cut out the shape using scissors or a craft knife. Using the glue gun, attach the moss to the cardboard, paying special attention to the edges.

You can also attach ribbon to the initials and hang them on the door to the venue, use them as a backdrop for a photo shoot, or hang them from the bride and groom’s chairs.
This project is perfect for a more rustic, romantic wedding. A napkin embroidered with the your guest's name is not only a beautiful decor element but also a sentimental favor for your guests. To be honest, it's a time consuming project but for those of you
who plan ahead and are handy with a needle and thread, it's definitely doable. You could even just do 'bride' and 'groom' napkins or the names of your bridal party…
All you need are some simple linen napkins (available here for $2.79/5), gold (or silver or blue or pink….) metallic thread, a pencil and you're ready to start. First write out the guest's name in pencil so you have something to trace over with tiny straight stitches. Then start sewing!
