So all you need is some hessian (colour of your choice) it is only about $6 a metre and you can make it as long as you need. It is a great way of integrating different tables if you are adding them all together for the big family do! Some silver acrylic artists paint, a stencil brush and of course a stencil ( I used an old one that you may have seen several times already on this blog - I like to get my moneys worth!!!!!) Also you will need a ground cloth to put under the hessian so the paint doesn't go through and a chalk pencil to lightly mark the middle of the cloth.
I just used one of the medallions to be repeated down the middle and since I wasn't being over fussy, I just held it in place as I used the stencil brush. It only took minutes to dry as the fabric soaked it up, you could add a fabric medium to the paint but it works without it!
I didn't even hem the table cloth, I will just let it fray a little.... that is the great thing about hessian! How simple and effective is it! I have already made the silver bon bons to go with it but you will have to wait to see the finished table setting!!!
