An Easy Christmas Table Runner

We are back today with another so very easy Christmas idea.  This one is so easy that I’m not even calling it a project.  I love using plaid at Christmas.  It’s my go-to for Christmas because I like a country look in our home during this time of year.  I love having plaid bows, wrapping paper, and fabrics.  Our sun room is loaded with plaid fabrics and pillows right now (here’s a similar look from last year), and our gifts are always wrapped in lots of plaid paper.  I think it has something to do with growing up in a small town and being around lots of plaid flannel shirts when I was young.

And speaking of plaid, I found this pretty red and black plaid wrapping paper this past summer at T. J. Maxx when I was headed to the check-out counter.  I think it was $1.00, but it might have been $2.00, but I liked it because it is nice and thick and not too wide.  I knew it would make a pretty runner on our great room dining table.  It looks just like a cozy flannel shirt.

So, no matter what time of year it is, if you see some wrapping paper that would look great with your decor, buy it.  I also bought a roll of black and white gingham to use for a Halloween runner in October and some pretty pastel flowers to use as a runner in the spring.


Take care.
