home: made [ table cloth ]
With just a flat bed sheet, some fabric paint and a little creativity (or head to Pinterest for inspiration) you can make your own unique table cloth – tailor it to your event, theme, colour way or home interior!
Depending on your table size you can buy cheap cotton flat sheets across the high street ( including Dunelm and John Lewis) to use – a great way to get a large ready-hemmed piece of fabric. Alternatively you could visit a fabric store or even try a charity shop for second hand bedding sheets to use. Next pick your colour/s for fabric paint widely available online and craft stores ( Hobbycraft ).
