DIY Table Decor

DIY Table Decor

Here’s a fun idea we came across: using Kraft paper as an instant table runner. The organic look and feel blends into any space. And with box of crayons, fussy kids have a means to doodle and stay entertained during dinner parties.

What’s even better is that this versatile and durable paper can be used many other ways in the home, from gift wrap to school projects. So be sure to reuse the clean pieces!
