Happy Tuesday! Here's a fun and easy DIY Geometric Table Runner that will instantly brighten up your dining area!

How To Make a DIY Geometric Table Runner / Oh Joy!

Here's how...

1. Sketch your shapes onto the runner. We drew a mix of large, oversized shapes so keep it simple but also abstract. The pen or pencil marks will get covered with paint, so don't worry if you make a mistake!

2. Place paper underneath the runner to catch any paint that my bleed through the fabric, and then paint your shapes with a brush. If you want the shapes to max your trim exactly, you may need to mix paints to match the color. Let dry for 1 hour.

3. Glue the corresponding color of trim along the edge of each shape, alternating between fringe and pom poms. Trim off any extra fringe.
