Good Morning! And happy Monday! Did you all have an amazing weekend? From projects, to shopping trips, to a wonderful Saturday night date night with Josh -- our weekend was fantastic! Did it really have to end? I'm definitely looking forward to the short week and time spent with family over Thanksgiving. But, enough about the rest of the week ahead, let's get to the awesome project I want to share with you today. As I did last week, I'm linking up to NewlyWoodwards' Dare to DIY Blog Party Each week for 6 weeks (this is week 2), I will be taking on one of NW's DIY dares. This week's dare is to entertain and so, I am showing you our dining table:
Now, we don't usually keep everything set out there and since it's just the two of us normally, we don't really feel the need to do so, but, I did decide it was time to get a table runner. However, why buy one when I could make one instead? I found this incredible tutorial through Pinterest over at Crissy's Crafts.
How great does this look? So I created my own version using these simple materials:
2 yards material
no sew tape
Seriously, does it get simpler? That's right. I didn't think so either. So, first, I took the 2 yards of fabric and cut them in half lengthwise. (I'll save the other for a table runner in another season.) Then, I created a hem and using the iron, first made a crease in the hem. Then, I used the no sew tape and put it inside my hem.
|I love this stuff. I plan on using it for lots of things.|
Then, I laid the first piece of ribbon down over the no sew tape and ironed that (front only this time).
|Sorry for the glare...|
|Please ignore the present lack of curtains. Thanks!|
PS. I also linked this up to House of Grace's Twice Owned Link Party!
