Living in Tennessee, there’s a pretty slim chance that I’ll have a white Christmas.  But I can take matters out of the weatherman’s (or woman’s) hands and make sure I’ll have some snowflakes on the table with today’s handmade project: a snowflake-embellished table runner.

Snowflake table runner how-to

Remember those folded cutout snowflakes you perfected in third grade? Now is the time to revive those masterful cutting skills, or if the memory is a bit fuzzy, use a paper snowflake template.  Cut several types of snowflakes out of white felt, then affix it to a burlap table runner.  It’ll look great on your table (or across the mantel) all winter long, no matter how much (or how little) snow piles up outside.
