ADd a “Hail Mary Play” DIY Table Runner for the Big Game
While your party mix is cooking, why not whip up a simple and festive table runner using items from around the house? No one would ever know it was your procrastinating hostess “Hail Mary Play.”
I made this table runner using freezer paper from my panty and electrical tape from my husband’s tool chest, then I added numbered stickers I had on hand.
I made varsity pendant labels using a free font called “Allstar” and printing them out on my printer.
By the time your done with your table runner, the party mix will be ready. Just cool and serve!
Beware: this snack mix goes fast! I recommend making at least two batches if you’re entertaining guests.
It’s as easy as that! What do you think of my Sweet and Spicy Party Mix and last minute table runner? Please share in the comments below?
