Marbling Tablescape

| Other Craft Ideas

By Pattie | Nicobar, Andaman And Nicobar Islands

Difficulty Level Intermediate

Without a doubt, marbling is the trend to watch right now. It’s everywhere! The technique of dipping items into a tub that has color floating on top of water, is a simple yet dramatic way to create the marbling effect on such things as a vase, a box, and paper, for a beautiful tablescape.

This project is a great outdoor activity for a summer day. Grab a pan of water and your favorite colors and 2 or 3 items to dip. You can even dip paper! Glue the marbled paper to a recycled can or jar for a darling pencil holder everyone will admire.
