DIY No Sew Table Runner

DIY Projects

Inspired by this morning gorgeous tablescape designed by Belovely Events that Jillian McGrath Photography captured, we created a mini table runner round up. Along with a no-sew tutorial, you can whip up these pretties in a jiffy!

DIY no sew table runner:

Step 1: Measure the width of your stitch witchery (about 1/2″ — you can find stitch witchery here). This will be your “seam” allowance.
Step 2: Iron the edge to mark where the stitch witchery will go. This gives a straighter edge. Then iron on the stitch witchery.
Step 3: Repeat the same on the other sides. Stitch Witchery is also washable, so you can use them again at home!

We created a mini round up with some of our fabrics that would make great runners. Better yet, they are mostly under $12/yard! Since most fabrics are about 54″ wide, you can make 2-3 runners.

Last, but not least… Burlap. It’s the darling of textiles in weddings, and we love the idea of stenciling the ends of a table runner like we’ve seen in our past real weddings:

    What about round tables? What looks best? Round runners or more square runners? Any pictures of either?
    I wonder how a stiped pattern would look as a round runner…
    Great idea!
