Christmas Table Runner

I asked my sister if there was anything that she wanted this holiday season and she said she wanted some holiday table runners. She wanted Christmas the most, so I made her a table runner for Christmas that I designed and made up myself. I used all scraps (except I did have about 3/4 yard of the Christmas Tree fabric). I personalized it for her family too. I mailed this off to her the day before Thanksgiving and said to open it now so she could use it. She told me she loved it. Now I will be making other holiday table runners for her for throughout the year.
I wrote their names on the ornaments, but placed some purposely upside down so that if you sit on one side of the table you can read 2 names.
This way you can read 3 names.
I wasn't sure about writing on the rickrack, so I tried a test piece first, and it worked fine, even though a bit bumpy to write.

When making this I wasn't sure if I would have enough of the red fabric (that I paired with the Christmas Tree fabric) for the half-square triangles, so I made some triangles with other red scraps I had. But it turned out I had plenty of the red, so I turned those extra triangles into pinwheels and decided to use those on the back. I also wanted to use up the rest of the tree fabric too. So I sewed some fabric strips here and there to make it large enough and created this backing for the runner.
Pin It Now!


  1. Very creative, love that you put their names on the ornaments and that you put some ornaments upside down. Happy Holidays!

  2. How sweet of you and the table runner is so festive. Love the personalized ornament design.

  3. I love the way you personalized the ornaments! Really great Daryl!

  4. Cute! I like the personalized ornaments!

  5. LOL!! I too love the personalization. (Seriously...I was really going to say that!)

  6. What a nice touch to add names on the Christmas balls! And I find the back as beautiful as the front. It's like you've sent your sister two gifts in one. :-)
