Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed Gifts

How to Make a Decorative Table Cloth

  1. Press your fabric so that there are no wrinkles in it. 

  2. Cut the fabric into a rectangle. You can measure it to make sure it fits the serving tray or table. 

  3. Using your pinking sheers cut around the 4 raw edges.

    Pro Tip: "Using pinking sheers gives the fabric a zigzag edge, and prevents the fabric from fraying. Plus it is a great alternative if you don't want to sew!" - Jane Monzures

  4. Create your design and print if off. 

  5. Follow the instructions on the packaging of the iron on transfer sheet, and transfer your design over. Trim the edges as needed. 

  6. Iron your design onto the tablecloth following the instructions again from the transfer sheet. Once it cools peel, it off to reveal your design. 

How to Make a DIY Chalkboard Coffee Mug

  1. Make sure your mug is clean and completely dry. 

  2. Tape around the mug where you do not want the chalkboard paint. 

  3. Using short strokes paint the mug. Apply as many coats as necessary.

  4. Let the mug sit until it is dry. Once it is dry, you can write personal messages on the mug.
