If I do one it will be burlap and I will most likely make my own stencil and paint it on, shouldn’t take too long.

Design your monogram on your computer.

Print it out.

Pin your fabric to the wall.

Use a projector to display your monogram on the fabric.

Outline the monogram with a pencil.

Paint the monogram with fabric paint.

I did mine over 3 nights…. a few hours each night painting by hand… i truly LOVE it… its one of a kind and its one of my fave DIYS, I bought the runner with a coupon at AC MOORE…with paints and brushes total cost was under $25 when they sell online custom ones for $200+

TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!!  My Future Mother-In-Law doenst want me to use  it now! she wants me to cut it and frame it..but I will be using it

That is BEAUTIFUL! I love the idea of making an asile runner – but I am not sure if my venue allows them (I’ll have to ask at our tasting next week).

How do you get them to stay in place?? Our venue has hard wood floors and I can just imagine a slipping nightmare. . .  thoughts?
