My love for Warhol is not a secret. His early illustrations of shoes – though not his most famous – will always be one of my favorite things in the world. So, when we were looking for fresh ideas of how to interpret a table runner for a girly party, his shoe imagery immediately came into my head. I love the pops of color and the lovely unique shapes of the shoes against a black background, giving a table setting an instant wow factor. And although Laura and I styled this with Warhol’s famous red lips, bananas, and striking black and white houndstooth, you can also do this look with pastel colors (maybe a bit of metallic or glitter), because, well, a shoe-themed party is the best kind of party! –Erin from BerinMade Paper Goods

To make the runner:
Step 1. Cut out your shoe shapes from the downloadable templates. Our templates can be used on any paper cutting machines, or you can use good old fashioned scissors and a cutting knife.
Step 2. Lay out your black kraft paper – or tape several sheets of black card stock together to make a strip the length of your table.
Step 3. Lay out all your shoe shapes and arrange until you’re happy with how it looks. Stick down using a glue stick and let dry!
