HOW T MAKE A FLAG RUNNER

One thing that I love about this project is that this is a no-sew project. Now, let’s get started. You will need the following materials to make your DIY Flag Table Runner.
- Canvas Paint Cloth Fabric
- Spray Paint in Red and Blue
- Star Stickers (or vinyl stars)
- Painter’s Tape 1.5 inch
Lay out your canvas Painter’s Cloth so that it is lengthwise.
Determine how long you want your table runner to be so that you have some hanging over both ends of your table. This will vary depending on how big your table is and your preference for length.
Draw a line when you determine how long you want it to be with a pencil so you will know where to stop painting your stripes.
Lay a strip of painter’s tape so that it lines up along one edge of your cloth with the tape running lengthwise.
Continue laying a strip of painter’s tape so that it runs right along the edge of your first tape line.
Continue until you have you have laid down 12 strips of tape.
For the blue stars section of the flag measure down the length of the first stripe about 18-22 inches (depending on how long your table runner is) and the width of 7 strips of tape.
Draw a line that runs across the 7 stripes and cut the tape. Pull up the tape so that it uncovers the paint canvas where the blue and the stars will be.
Evenly space your stars onto the canvas and be sure they are on the canvas well.
Paint this section blue.
Carefully remove the star stickers before paint is fully dry. Then let the paint dry completely.
When the blue paint has dried, pull up every other strip of tape starting with the very first stripe.
You will paint that first stripe and every other stripe red.
Before the paint dries completely, carefully pull up the tape.
Let dry completely.
Iron if needed (be sure to place an old towel between your iron and the painted canvas).
That is all there is too it! It is a great project that anyone can do!
