DIY Beaded Table Runner!!

I’m always hunt for new and different things. Ever since i saw beaded runner/rug on the home decor magazines ,i’m in LOVE with it.  But didn’t want to splurge $$$ so an idea popped right away why not to do it myself one for the fraction of the cost.

A trip to the craft store to buy doilies paper cut, yes you heard me right  doilies : ) ,since this is of a trial and error kind of a project, didn’t mind paying couple of dollars : ). I have the other materials like paint,pearls,rhinestones and other beads handy.

After playing around with the pattern, decided to go with the simpler one. (Sorry no pic). And then the fun begins with painting : ).

I started painting sparingly with yellows, green, silver,blue since the show stoppers are the beads : ). Next step is to glue and add pearls , rhinestones and some gold glitter to get this look.

I know bad lighting. Another pic in an different angle(hope to get some light ).

I’m pretty happy with the end result for shy of under $10, i have beaded runner/rug which houses on my dining table for now : ). This project makes me one happy blogger.
