Ornament Table Runner

ballard inspired hanging ornament table runner

Vanessa from At the Picket Fence has made the official shift from fall to Christmas in her home with this Ballard-inspired table runner. The $15 price tag is much more palatable to my wallet than Ballard’s $79 asking price, and you may be able to whittle it down even more if you’ve got some drop cloth and fabric remnants on hand.  Isn’t it cute how the ornaments appear to be hanging off the table?

Stenciled Feed Sack Pillow

Pillows made from authentic feed sacks can cost a pretty penny, but Char from Crap I’ve Made shows it’s pretty simple to get the same look for less. Char created her pillow cover from drop cloth and then jollied it up with a stenciled Old Saint Nick. She scuffed up the image with sandpaper for a well-worn, vintage feel. No, it’s not made from a fifty-year-old grain sack, but, personally, I’d rather have a pillow customized with my choice of graphic, text, color, etc.!

Fabric and Ribbon Corkboards

Heather of Fake-It Frugal scored an awesome deal on some corkboards last summer, paying only 75 cents each! They were just your plain old basic corkboards… that is until Heather jazzed them up with fabric, ribbon and beaded trim. We can all use a little more organization in our lives, and it might as well be pretty to boot!

Knife and Fork Curtains

Check out these fun and unique curtains made by Brooke from All Things Thrifty.  There’s not much that’s more appropriate for a dining or kitchen area than the utensils you chow down with! Of course, you know I love Brooke’s choice of drop cloth fabric for the curtains, and the stenciled knife and fork came […Read More]

Stenciled Drop Cloth Curtains

Erin from Lavender and Lemon Drops had been eyeing some printed window panels from West Elm for some time. Deciding they would be the perfect addition to her living room, Erin dedicated a snowy day to creating her own with some drop cloth fabric and a stencil. I have used drop cloth for all sorts […Read More]

Bar Stools with Numbered Fabric

Amy and Emily from Sisters of the Wild West were inspired by their love for typography to create barstools with numbered drop cloth cushions. The sisters actually created the fabric themselves using a template they had previously used to stencil a tabletop. The custom upholstery took the barstools from run-of-the-mill to one-of-a-kind. Amy and Emily […Read More]

Christmas Glitter Pillow

Here’s pillow number 3 from my Christmas pillowpalooza over at Infarrantly Creative. I cut the ornaments from glitter transfer paper with my Cameo and then ironed them onto my drop cloth fabric. I added some satin ribbon and sewed up an envelope closure pillow form. I am loving me some glitter lately so the sparkle […Read More]
