It's no surprise we are huge fans of all things paper here at The Paper + Craft Pantry, but did you know we also happen to be huge foodies? On a day to day basis when we are working in the studio, it's a good bet you'll find at least one of us snacking, and it isn't surprising to overhear conversations about food!
And even though it's been a rainy and dreary week here in Austin, we found a way to liven things up with this week's D.I.Y.!
It was a no-brainer to combine our love for D.I.Y. and food into something that'll dress up your next dinner party. This adorable table runner features simple shapes and pops of color for a sushi themed get-together!
SUSHI TABLE RUNNER
PROJECT CRAFT TIME: 20-30mins
- Table runner or a 2 yd cut of fabric
- Acrylic paints + brushes
- Wooden blocks
- White foam board
- Hot glue gun
1. Lay out your runner or fabric on a flat surface. *We layered a poster board under our fabric so paint wouldn't seep through the fibers onto our table*
2. Using a pair of scissors, we cut our "sushi" shapes out of the white foam board and hot glued the pieces to our wooden blocks to create these handy stamps!
We used a simple rectangle shape for our nigiri pieces, a triangle shape for our onigiri, a square and a smaller rectangle for our nori (seaweed) stamps.
3. Grab your paint brush, add white paint to your newly made stamps and get to stamping! You may need to go back over with your brush to touch up your stamped shapes.
4. Let the white paint dry before layering on your "nori" stamp and adding other colors to finish your sushi pieces!
5. Leave to dry on a flat surface over night!
