  • Step 3

    We took it to the patio table, and Madeleine decided if she wanted the fabric to lay visible over the front of the cloth, or tucked around the back. She chose the back. We laid down the stick and she added glue,

    She chose a natural jute, so we tied that onto the ends of the stick for hanging. Beautiful! A favorite craft, and a favorite display for hanging in our home, celebrating the season.
