Crafting a DIY table runner is a snap if you get all of the necessary components onboard. If you would like to make your own DIY table runner, you’ll need to have the following elements:
- Scissors or a paper cutter
- Glue gun
- Pastel-colored felt sheets
Let’s all get going on creating a DIY table runner now that you have the materials required. Creating your DIY table runner will be simple if you follow the correct procedures:
Step 1: To begin, trim each 9″ × 12″ piece of fabric into 12 strands, each measuring 9″ x 1″. If you do not have any accessibility to a paper trimmer, trim the strips with a ruler and scissors or a rotating cutter.
Step 2: Then, as indicated, arrange 6 strips of this hue in a diagonal arrangement. Then pick a new color and arrange six strips of that color adjacent to the first six strips. Apply a dab of glue to the first strip’s upper end.
Put glue dot
Step 3: As you glue, begin laying out your cross strips. The cross segments should join the initial strips at the front, then cross two slices and join the base of the following strip. Each upper and bottom connection of two strips will require a dot of adhesive.
Join the ends
Step 4: Once you’ve set out all of your colors and placed all of the cross strands at the front and base, use an adhesive to add a dot of glue to the spots where the strands cross in the middle of the runner.
Secure the centers
Step 5: Cut the surplus felt off of either side of the table runner when you’re happy with the size and all of your glue locations are secured.
Trim the ends
Step 6: Your table runner is all set to get laid on your pretty table.
