Our super chic blog contributors, Kristen and Missy from Sweetly Chic Events & Designs, are sharing an easy table runner made out of craft paper, perfect for a colorful summer party or baby shower!

A brightly colored table runner is a great way to take a party table from boring to beautiful, and with this table runner, there is no sewing involved because it's made from craft paper. This quick, easy, and inexpensive party DIY is a fun way to add a little color to your next event!


  • Roll of craft paper
  • Scissors
  • Assortment of acrylic paint
  • Wine cork
  • Paper towels

Unroll your craft paper and cut it to the length of your table, adding a foot of length to each side. This will not only look nicer, but it also help to keep the runner in place.

Squeeze out a bit of paint onto a piece scrap of paper. You won't need much, as a little goes a long way for this project!

Next, gently dip your cork into the first paint color, only applying it to the very base of the cork.

Blot off any excess paint onto a paper towel, leaving enough paint to transfer a couple of polka dots onto your craft paper.

Carefully press the paint-coated cork straight down onto the craft paper and lift, leaving a perfect polka dot!

Repeat the previous steps with your other paint colors, being careful to wipe the previous color from the cork with a paper towel.

Don't be concerned about perfectly spacing your dots, imperfections add to the charm! This should leave you with a fun polka doted pattern throughout the entire runner.

"Browse Themes" Button Added to our Nav Bar - Now You Can Find Party Themes More Easily

To see all the inspirations and themes on our main site (not just in those five categories), scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.

We will also be making tweaks to this page to make it easier to use, so if you have any ideas on how to improve it, please let me know at
