I’m working with Home Depot on a series of fun and simple holiday decor projects for the home this holiday season. Last week we made a star garland and this week we put together a festive holiday table with a candy cane striped tablecloth, star paper placemats, and mini red striped vases for under $5.
For the placemats we cut pieces of kraft paper and then ripped off a pieces of Scotch Red Duct Tape a little longer than the height of the placemat and wrapped it around the right and left sides. We also stamped it with stars but another idea would be to have your younger guests decorate their own placemats.
For the mini vases we found a few thrifted jars and wrapped the bottom with the Scotch Red Duct Tape. Then we added two smaller stripes above as well with a thinner tape (you could also cut down the larger duct tape into thinner strips as well). We filled the vases with greenery we clipped from outside.
For the striped tablecloth, take your white tablecloth and lay it flat on the ground. Grab a roll of Scotch Red Duct Tape from Home Depot and rip long pieces, laying them down as you go. It took only about 5 minutes to make. My favorite part about this project is that for the tablecloth you can turn it into something Christmasy and festive, and then rip the tape off and you’re back to your regular white tablecloth. Awesome, right? We used this striped tablecloth for our Say Yes holiday party this past weekend.
