It’s pretty much just plastic tablecloths and some masking tape – isn’t that cool?! I found the original idea on pinterest (link here) then made it my own to go with our rainbow theme. It’s a fairly easy concept actually.
I also had a strip about 24″ high that I used as the base for the tablecloth. Once I had all the pieces cut I grabbed the roll of tape (1 1/2″ painters masking tape, since I had a ton of that left over from our pantry project) and got to work on the ruffles. The ruffles are pretty easy – just scrunch the top of the fabric, taping it down as you go along.
I started with the bottom ruffle, then repeated the technique with each color, working my way up to the top and being sure to overlap the one underneath by a couple of inches so the tape didn’t show.
And covering up any of the uglies with another tablecloth. In this case I used a white cloth tablecloth folded in half, but you could use another plastic one if you wanted to.
As my 5 year old likes to say – Easy Peasy! And such a great statement piece for the buffet table at the party!
