I always love setting up a beautiful tablescape for the holidays. There are a few things I’ve learned over the years of experimenting…. they can’t be too high (or your husband removes everything mid-dinner to see his family on the other side of the table, lol), they need greenery (always!), and it’s really easy to make a beautiful table with some paint and creativity! My Modern Homemade Home series friends and I have created a few stunning projects using Beauti-Tone paint for the holidays and I can’t wait to share these simple DIYs, including a stunning Table Runner!

I’m a fan of moody colours. My whole home will be decked out with rich and moody tones this year, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! When I decided to paint a few pieces for our Christmas table, I went to Home Hardware and stayed within that theme by choosing a few of lovely Beauti-Tone colours called, In the Black (UP77-3), Monogram (D31-1-042403), and Straight Up, Two Olives (UP73-4).
Christmas DIY Projects: Table Runner, Bread Basket, and Candle Holders
Guys! I always get soooo excited to see what a little bit of paint can do! You will not believe how simple these projects are. I’ll start by sharing how I made this simple, painted table runner!
All you need for this project is a some white paper (I bought this roll from IKEA!), some leaf stamps, and two colours of green paint -I used Monogram and Straight Up, Two Olives. I cut my paper so it was a bit longer than my table. Then I used a dollar store foam brush to lightly brush paint on the stamps, and then stamped all along the edges of my table runner. I took about 2/3 of a cheesy Christmas movie to finish all of the stamping, lol. Your guests won’t even know it was stamped until they get up close!
The next project involved this little stacking houses I bought at the dollar store.
For this project, I took off the screws and then used the beautiful Beauti-Tone paint, “In the Black” to paint them a deep colour. Then I set some battery powered tealights inside. They make for beautiful focal points on the table and add a nice glow in the evening!
Finally, I’ve always wanted a deep coloured bread basket, and its surprisingly hard to find in stores!
I bought this tiny woven basket at a thrift store, added a couple coats of the Monogram green Beauti-Tone paint and voilà! A beautiful new bread basket! Just make sure that you put a napkin down under your food.
A few small touches finish off the look, including a centrepiece of simple greenery, with cutest tiny green ornaments sprinkled in.
And a few tall, white candlesticks!
Here’s a few more pictures of our beautiful Christmas table this year! I have to take very good care of that table runner, because I’m hoping it will last until Christmas Day. Or I’ll just have to watch another sappy Christmas movie and make another one, lol.
What do you think? Did you love the Christmas table?
