Make this fabulous Easter table runner in less than 5 minutes for less than $5!! SERIOUSLY! No crafty skills needed if you follow this simple tutorial!
A few years ago I stumbled upon a way to make the cutest table runners ever. Bold, clean, statement pieces. For under $5. In under 5 minutes. Surely I jest, you must be thinking. NOPE! It is the honest truth, and I am going to prove it to you with this post on how to make yourself a lovely Easter table runner in under 5 minutes and $5.
My obsession with these table runners all began with a Fall Table Runner made with large felt leaves. I loved it so much (and the people of Pinterest loved it so much!) that I ended up making a Christmas Table Runner and a Halloween Table Runner as well! The process is SO simple, and I adore how the big, bold shapes look on my dad’s formal antique dining room table.
So . . . do you have a hot glue gun? Great. Crafty skills? Doesn’t matter! You don’t need ’em! Let me prove it to you.
The only supplies that you will need for this project are felt shapes and a hot glue gun. I used four felt shapes that I found at The Dollar Tree.
Squeeze a bit of hot glue onto each shape and glue it to the next shape! (Be careful not to burn yourself!) Repeat until you are done! To make sure my shapes were straight I lined them up with a seam in the table.
TA – DA! You’re done. Seriously.
Now all you need to do is find a place to display your table runner and perhaps add a little centerpiece of sorts in the middle. I find a pretty glass bowl full of festive things is always a good choice. I got these glitter eggs at some craft store (can’t remember which one – sorry) and thought that they would make the perfect eye-catching addition to my table runner.
Happy crafting, and Happy Easter!
