Starry Runner

There’s nothing more enchanting than the starry sky. To excite your inner stargazer, you don’t necessarily have to shoot for the stars. With this constellation runner, stars will be closer than you might imagine. This fabulous project requires a constellation template on a piece of transfer paper, embroidery thread, white beads (or loose sequin rounds), a 15 x 72-inch piece of black, navy blue, or eggplant of polyester fabric, an embroidery hoop, and a needle. Using the constellation template, draw the needed constellations on the piece of fabric. After that, “French knot” the beads for the stars and use the backstitch for the constellations.

Woven Runner

Do you have extra ribbon rolls? Grab a hot glue gun and give your burlap trims the second life by crafting this easy jute runner! For a standard-sized runner (one-third the width of the table and at least 6-inch drop), you’ll need six 65-inch and thirty 12-inch strips of burlap. Then, place the longer strips side-by-side, weave a 12-inch strip across one end, and apply a small amount of glue behind each 65-inch strip. Once you’re done, continue weaving the rest of the shorter stripes across the longer ones and dab a small amount of glue behind each end to secure. When all the shorter strips are there, make sure to secure the other end by gluing behind each strip. If necessary, you can hem the edges with the help of a sewing machine.

Dip-Dye Table Runner

Got an old white polyester/linen/burlap table runner with lace? Instead of sending it to the dustbin, you can give it a high-end and elegant look with the help of this ombre dip-dye guide. To achieve that super-trendy ombre look, you’ll have to fold your runner lengthwise and then, accordion-fold it starting at the end. To make sure all the layers are in place, use a needle and thread to stitch in three places along the edge. After that, tie your folded runner to an old curtain rod or broom handle. Pour fabric dye into a bathtub, add hot water, set your rod with the runner into the tub, and let sit until you get the desired hue. Since the dye will partly wash away, make it a bit darker than you want. Once you’re done with the color, remove your runner, unfold, and wash it in hot water with detergent. Pop it in the dryer, and voila!
