Stencil Crow

Place runner on a flat surface with a piece of tin foil under work area to prevent paint from bleeding through. Position stencil so crow is perched on branch. Load acrylic paint onto two-inch foam brush and blot gently over stencil (Image 1). Use artist's brush to paint crow's legs and feet (Image 2). Repeat stencil on additional branches as desired and allow paint to dry. Tip: Using a paper towel to remove excess paint from brush will reduce bleeding.

Create Fringe

Loosen edges of burlap gently with fingers. Pull threads to create fringed border on all four sides. Note: Some burlap is not machine washable, so quickly clean up any spills by blotting them with water and prevent stains by not placing food directly on runner.
