Unique Fall D.I.Y Table Runners Instructions
Pin Wheel Runner
With the 8.5x11 sheets of paper, start folding the paper in an accordion style.
Once the whole sheet is folded, take it and fold it in half.
Tape the 2 sides that are touching together with double sided tape.
Repeat steps 1-3 and then attach this piece to the one that is already finished to create the circular pinwheel.
Copy these steps with different coloured and patterned paper and be sure to make different sizes of pinwheels.
Hot glue all the layered wheels together to create your table runner.
Rustic Wood Runner
With the 3 stains, stain each stick (shim or a paint stir stick) a different shade of the stain. Be sure to stain both sides of the sticks.
Once dry, place them side by side, placing them at random to give a rustic effect.
Place a dab of hot glue on each stick about 4” from the top. Run the ribbon across and repeat the same thing at the bottom.
Let it dry, and this ribbon will then hold the runner together.
If you have your grandmas crochet doilies sitting in a drawer pull them out and create a gorgeous vintage inspired table runner by either sewing them or glueing them together.
You can also use paper doilies. Just placed them in the pattern that you would like them, be sure to layer them and then glue.
Take vintage photographs of family or ones that will mean something to your dinner guest and photocopy them.
Layer them in the center of your table and start glueing them together to create a photo collage runner. Simple and easy.
