i saw this table runner on the blog apartment therapy and thought it would be the perfect table runner for a rustic or fall wedding. plus, it’s not too ornate or too brightly colored for you to reuse at home. it got me thinking that practically anything could be used as a table runner. and although i don’t always promote DIY projects i think this would be a good one because it could teach you the art of sewing. after you purchased a $200 sewing machine, of course:)
you could also just ask your local seamstress to throw a couple together in a quarter of the time it would take you.
here are a couple good table runner ideas…
different sizes of crocheted or lace doilies
river rocks
kraft paper
banana leaves
anything that is old that you can save and decoupage onto paper;) (wine bottle labels, postcards, pictures, newspaper, etc…)
burlap
wrapping paper (a long ream of it)
here are a couple bad table runner ideas…
glitter on paper
fresh newspaper
a hallway rug
aluminum foil
old bridesmaid dresses
