40 Fantastic DIY Table Runners


Every host or hostess wants their guests to feel 110% welcome in their home. It is those extra added things that always make the difference – right? When you are a DIY-er, you have the ability to make family gatherings & holiday meals even lovelier. Today, we have 40 DIY table runner projects, just for you!

Table runners are a fantastic project that we know you’re going to want to try. We have both sewing & no sew projects for you too. If you are new to sewing, please don’t feel intimidated – a lot of these are an excellent beginner project to choose. If you pick a quilted table runner, try to select one that has bigger quilting pieces, instead of smaller, more intricate ones if you are a beginner sewer & you’ll do a terrific job!

Keep in mind that table runners not only make 1 meal special, but these can become family keepsakes, treasured for generations to come. So while your family enjoys them for meals now, your children probably will decorate their table with them, and you’ll sit at the table with those same table runners, telling your own grandchildren that you sewed or DIY-ed them for family meals, which is very special to pass along to future generations.

Table runners make lovely gifts too. Keep them in mind for newly engaged couples, couples who have just started a family or bought a new home. They especially will appreciate the chance to start new traditions.

So, let’s get started. Happy DIY-ing!
