Felt Christmas Table Runner-
I’m so thrilled with how this Christmas felt table runner turned out. It was a a fun hand sewing project that anyone can make! The supplies are easy to find and this is a great way to add some festive color and fun to your table. The runner is made from wool, felt holly leaves, thread and a variety of red buttons. Each product is linked to where you can buy it for a great price! I’ve also shared the holly leaf template if you scroll down.
I used red thread for the leaves and buttons, but you could also use green if desired. The Christmas felt table runner will be a great addition to your home table for the holiday season.
Ok… let’s get started… here’s the list of supplies: wool, felt holly leaves, thread and a variety of red buttons. Cut the grey wool the length of your table and your desired width. My table is narrow, so my runner is only about 15″ wide. You can choose the coverage you think looks good on your table. Cut various size and color leaves from felt. Again, the leaf template is below the instructions…
From there I found the very center of the runner. Then… I laid out the leaves in a triangle fashion. Sew several buttons in the middle of the leaves. Stitch down the center of each leaf to attach.
I created a second layer of leaves to complete the center of the table runner.
From the center I worked a narrow pattern down each side. You can copy my design or create your own.
I finished both ends of the runner with V of leaves. I started with these light green leaves, then added the darker green holly for texture.
Place this runner on your table end enjoy some cookies and cocoa and Christmas music! This will be going on our table the day after Thanksgiving!
