Flash Back: Thankgiving meets chalk cloth!!

Custom Chalk Cloth Table Topper

Last week I made myself a last minute Chalk Cloth Table Topper for our Thanksgiving table, now, this is different then my Modern June Table Topper because this one is made to fit the entire top of my dinner room table.  I don't know what was better how easy the project was to do or how much fun was had at our Thanksgiving Dinner.  Let me tell you, even the In-Laws loosen up and joined in on the coloring fun!  Sweet!

What ya gotta have:

  • a length of Chalk Cloth a bit longer than you table
  • a good pair of scissors
  • some double stick tape
  • white pencil 
  • a random book or box 

Step one:  Roll out your chalk cloth and line it up on your table.
You don't want it sliding around, so use some double stick tape to keep in place.

Step two:  Since you are going to be marking the bottom of the oilcloth from the underside you will want to use a box or book as a hard surface to draw against.

Step three:  mark the shape of the entire table.


Step four:  Cut it up!

Step five:  Use double stick tape to adhere topper to table.

DISCLAIMER... Please make sure this doesn't hurt your table top, try
this out in a unseen spot before doing this on the top of your table.

 Step six:  Now that your all cut to size, set the table, grab some chalk
and invite your friends over for a great time!

I am dying to know what you all think, so tell me, what event would you use this for?
