If you can paint a straight line, you can paint this tablecloth. Now that’s my kind of DIY!
Graphic painted tablecloth
Cotton tablecloth or flat sheet, washed without fabric softener and dried
Black fabric paint (eg: Dylon)
1) Iron the tablecloth, lay down on the floor (protect the floor with a waterproof dust sheet) and hold down at the corners with masking tape. You can paint the pattern freehand, but if you feel nervous mark out a grid with masking tape.
2) Paint on the crosses. Make them as big, small, regular or irregular as you like. Arrows or dots would also work well.
3) When the paint is dry, iron the tablecloth on the reverse to fix the paint (or follow the fixing instructions on your fabric paint pack).
4) Top with cakes and admire!
