Here is a quick, easy and cheap way to get a faux beaded table runner!
I picked up a table runner at Dollar Tree along with some green glitter in a pack of three colors of glitter. Then I just used my hot glue gun to make a snowflake design and some border "beads". It may not be washable or look exactly like beads, but It's a cute alternative for the kids table and for $2 it doesn't have to be washed! You can sponge it off if you want to save it or just toss it and make a new one next year!!
