Easy No Sew Table Runner


I recently found this gorgeous cotton duck fabric.  I couldn't wait to come home and make a runner for my table.  I literally had this completed in under 15 minutes without any sewing!


You can find the fabric I used at Hobby Lobby or Fabric.com. I pinned the link under my sewing board on Pinterest. To make one the first thing that you need to do is figure out the length and width you want your runner to be. Then add an inch and a half to the edges all the way around.  You can choose to fold the ends over twice if you wish to hide your raw edge.  I didn't want the extra bulk so I skipped that step.  No one but me will see the underside anyway! My finished runner dimensions ended up being 14 x 88 inches. 


Now that your fabric is cut to your specifications iron your edges.  Once you have the fabric pressed make your corners!  I loved finding this little tip to make a clean corner look really great!


Now that you have ironed your edges and folded your corners pull back the ironed edge. Open it back up and run a thin line of fabric glue along the ironed line and then pull your edge back over to cover.  Gently smooth the edges down and let it dry.



The amazing thing about this runner is that I used my 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon and with the cost of the glue this project only cost me $15 total and I made three table runners to share at $5 each!

Happy Spring!

    1. Thanks Chassidy! My brother made the flower box so unfortunately I don't have a tutorial to show you. It is essentially a long platform for the base, a box on the base and then framed by crown molding. Here are some instructions I found for making the box and you could frame it with your own crown molding. http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/01/diy-planter-box-centerpiece.html
