Roundup: 8 DIY Table Runner Ideas

by on Jun 21, 2012

There are so many options our there for DIY napkins, placemats, and table runners, it’s hard not to want to make them all (even for a non-cook like myself). I mean, just because I can’t make buffalo chicken mac and cheese doesn’t mean I don’t like to decorate the table when I have guests come over. 

So let’s start with a table runner roundup, and work our way up to the napkins and placemats later. Sound good?

1. Make a dip dye striped table runner with Jenny Batt on The Sweetest Occasion.
