I love a pretty table, but I hate to store lots of bulky seasonal stuff. I would rather use my storage space for fabric and beads! A friend suggested leaf cutouts, and Kraft-Tex offers lots of color options. Kraft-tex is a versatile heavy paper product that sews like fabric and is sturdy like leather. Spills are no problem – just blot them up or give the project a good wash and press.
Did I want a table runner? A wreath shape to highlight a centerpiece? Separate pieces to scatter on smaller tables? A modular approach would allow those options and the units would stack easily for storage. Here’s how I made my Leafy Tablescape with Kraft-tex!
