One of my favorite details on our Gaming Party are these DIY tablecloths! This DIY started out much like many of mine do - with the thought of 'how can I get the biggest bang for my buck?' I knew I wanted something fun for the table top since we were keeping the decorations at a minimum, but I didn't want to spend a lot either.
My solution was to jazz up some plain, black, plastic tablecloths I picked up at my local party store.
By drawing on lines similar to the backdrop of the main party design, I was able incorporate the theme to every detail. (You can see that design mentioned in the 'Game On' sign on the TV here).
I drew on the lines using a silver metallic Sharpie paint pen and using a long ruler. If you don't have a ruler long enough, you can easily use the piece of cardboard, posterboard, etc to create the straight edge.
I just drew on the lines in random lengths (some going the entire length of the tablecloth) and added filled circles at the end of the lines that weren't connected to anything. I probably spent a total of 20 minutes on the entire thing.
I LOVE how the results turned out. And, there's no end to the possibility of options that you could do for any theme!
