5 Minute Table Runner


I really love having a table runner on my dinning room table. Although, I don’t have very many: one to be exact! But if you’ve followed my blog for any time you know I aim to use things I have on hand. A couple weeks ago, I was redecorating my table with my trifle bowl and story book bible. Using the colors from the fruit and book cover I decided a green table runner would be perfect! I didn’t have a green runner. Although, I did have a green table cloth and came up with an idea to make a table runner.

Who would have known, it was so easy to create a table runner in under 5 minutes!

Heres what you need

  • Your favorite table cloth (square or rectangular)
  • Iron
  • Ironing board
  • 5 minutes of time!


  1. Fold a tablecloth in half, length wise and then fold once more.
  2. Using the iron, press the edges until flat.
  3. Smooth out any wrinkles in your new runner.
  4. Place in the center of table.
  5. Add your center piece or any decorative items to the top of your table runner. If you want it a little more elegant feeling, add a white table cloth under neath the table runner.

Spending just 5 minutes to repurpose a table cloth equals no money out of pocket to dress your table!

What have you re-purpose around your house to make your dinning room decorative?
