5 Minute No Sew Fabric Table Runner

Sometimes you just need a quick and easy solution when it comes to entertaining.  I absolutely adore fabric table runners.  To me, they add instant glamour to any table.  In an ideal world, I would show off my sewing skills and make a few runners perfectly stitched for my perfect table.  However, I don’t live in one of those worlds… do you?  I can tell you that there is a shortcut… my 5 minute no sew fabric table runner!

I purchased 2.5 yards of this gorgeous black and white striped fabric.  I love it and it will work for SO many occasions… Halloween anyone?  You want to cut the fabric in half right down the middle lengthwise.  This will give you enough fabric to make two of them!

Iron each side of the runner in about 2 inches.  Do the same to each end.

Now grab your secret weapon… clear packing tape!  I taped the entire bottom edges and then added more tape up the sides ever 18 inches or so.  Now you are done!  Go party!

Fabric tablerunners really add a touch of class to your decorated table.  They show that you thought out your decor and will really impress your party guests.  I think you will find that they can be rather affordable, to when you purchase fabric that is on sale.   I ended up paying less than $10 for two table runners… not bad!  I can still go back and hem them if I find the time, but they still look fabulous after the party, so we will see!

    Hi! I’m an editor for Remodelaholic.com and am writing to request permission to use one of your photos from your table runner tutorial in an upcoming post. We would like to feature this in a round up and would include a backlink and clear credit to you.

    Additionally, we routinely publish round-up style posts on our site and if you’re willing to allow us to use one photo from other posts you’ve done, we would love to add you to our directory of sites to feature. As a bonus, your site would then be on our radar for possible Facebook shares as well.
