Placemats and Runner

  1. To create runner, measure and cut an 11” x 64” (or desired length) strip from green felt yardage. To create placemats, measure and cut desired number of 11” x 16” pieces. Measure and cut ¾” wide strips along entire length of white felt sheet.
  2. For runner, place one long white strip vertically across center. Measure and mark every 7” from center and line lightly with chalk. Cut several white strips into 3 ½” lengths then cut in half lengthwise. Position all pieces in place pressing long strips along chalk lines. Place the shorter strips halfway between the longer ones.
  3. For placemats, position all pieces in place as shown, apply a thin even coat of Fast Grab Tacky Glue to back of each, and then press in place.
  4. Use white chalk to lightly draw numbers next to each felt line as shown.
  5. Test flow of White Slick 3D Paint on paper towel using an even pressure on bottle for a smooth line. Fill in chalked numbers with paint. Let dry.
  6. A damp paper towel can be used to wipe off chalk lines if needed.


  1. Cut out and pin football pattern to brown felt and cut out football shapes.  Pin curved pattern to white and cut out two for each coaster.
  2. Position strips onto coaster then glue in place.
  3. Add White Slick 3D Paint curved lines and stitches between felt strips.  Let dry.

  2. To create numbers, start at one end, bending and twisting stem as needed into desired number. Cut off excess.
  3. Poke into cupcakes.
