DIY Table Runner


Project Wedding is quickly becoming one of my favorite wedding websites! The site contains a plethora of information and fun ideas. This next idea I want to share with you is incredible simple and I can not believe I did not think of this! I simply love this idea from Project Wedding for three reasons! This idea is easy, it is cheap, and it is so easy to clean up.  This project is creating an easy table setting with wrapping paper.  Project Wedding states that theymade a four person table setting complete with favor boxes and escort cards for $10. That is not a bad price but I bet you could make this for cheaper if you shop for the wrapping paper right after Christmas! Okay, enough of me talking! Here is how to make this project!
