Skill Level: Beginner fun craft

Materials Needed for Table Runner, Home Decorating Project: Tape measure; chalk marking pencil; felt: 1 yard white, ½ yard each of brown, lime green and turquoise; scissors; paper-backed fusible web; iron and ironing board .

1. Measure, mark and cut white felt to desired size of runner (ours is 14 inches wide). You may need to piece white felt sections together to get desired length. If so, cover seams with colored stripes as you fuse them on.

2. Using iron, fuse web onto back of each remaining piece of colored felt. Cut into strips slightly longer than runner width and several inches wide. We cut strips freehand for a slightly irregular look.

3. Peel backing off web and arrange stripes on runner; fuse in place.

4. Trim stripe ends even with edge of runner.

Innovative and Creative Crafts

Decorating with dishes is one of a designer’s best secrets for using ceramic crafts. It’s easy, stylish, fun—and even free, if you raid the cupboard for a stack of your favorites.  For added creativity check out flea markets or garage sales where you can pick up odds and ends for just a few pennies. Design anything that comes to mind from line plates on a chair rail, filling teacups on saucers with flowers or arrange colorful shards into an artful mosaic and make up your own creative and innovative ceramic craft ideas.

Ceramic Crafts

You can fill a bare wall with just about anything. For an alternative to art, hang decorative plates where your guests can view them. For a good visual effect, arrange in the center at eye level where it’s easy to view.
