Wash and dry tablecloth and fabrics. Do not use fabric softener in the wash or dry cycle. Fuse web to wrong side of fabrics. Determine number of ornaments, large balls, small balls and stars needed to decorate edge of tablecloth. Transfer ornament patterns to fabrics and cut out. Cut stars from gold moiré. Following package instructions, fuse cutouts to tablecloth along each edge, overlapping cutouts slightly. Lay tablecloth flat on smooth working surface. Referring to photo, outline and embellish cutouts with dimensional paints. Add wavy paint lines with dimensional paints to create appearance that ornaments are hanging. Let paint dry.
To prevent raveling along edges of tablecloth that will be trimmed, apply line of glue to wrong side of tablecloth along paint lines of ornaments. Let dry. Cut close along bottom edge of paint lines to create a random scalloped effect on tablecloth. (See photo) Tie each ribbon in bow. Glue bows to tablecloth randomly as desired. Let dry.
Do not wash tablecloth for at least 1 week. Wash by hand and hang to dry.
