For the candy and dessert bar I assembled for my sister's graduation party I created a paper table runner. It was a last-minute addition to the display, but a lucky one. It anchored the entire table and added that extra pop of color to the center that I was looking for.
It was super easy to craft and I could imagine using the steps below to create a table topper in a variety of designs. This look is simple to produce, mainly because I used a Permanent Glue Dots Dispenser® to secure all the parts. Basically, after I cut out all my circles I just had to press and roll the dispenser - couldn't have saved me more time.
Permanent Glue Dots Dispenser®
Cardstock of various colors cut into circles (I used a hot plate to get my shape)
Step 1: Begin by tracing out the circles you'll use for the letter backdrop from cardstock. We used a hotplate we had on hand to size each circle.
Step 2: Cut out your circles.
Step 3: Arrange your circles in the order and design you'd like them to lay in on the table. Once you have a desired look, trace out where you want to secure them together. Do the tracing on the backs of the circles. This will make applying your Permanent Glue Dots even easier than it already is.
Step 4: Apply your Permanent Glue Dots to the areas you've sectioned off on the back of the circles just by pressing and rolling the dispenser.
Step 5: Next, carefully place the next circle in your design sequence to the Permanent Glue Dots.
Step 6: Finally, lightly press down to make sure the circles are secured together. Repeat the process for your design.
