This is my completed DIY aisle runner.
So, what do you think?
How I made it…
I bought the runner from Michaels with a 40% or 50% off coupon for about $15. Also, the acrylic paint was bought at Michaels as well.
I already had pre-designed the crest which is used on my invitations. I printed the crest as a banner in Microsoft Publisher. It printed off on about 16 sheets of paper. Cut, aligned, and taped the “BIG” puzzle together. I then placed wax paper over top of the banner. Then I started painting. I painted in sections, basically worked from left to right. It took a few days but that was my own choice. Probably would have taken about 3-4 hours total.
Good luck to anyone who plans on making their own DIY Aisle Runner! It takes alot of time but I believe the outcome is lovely!
