Thanksgiving Table Runner and Tablescape

Hello there everyone, Jen visiting again from Craft-O-Maniac. Today I am so excited to share this beautiful, soft Thanksgiving tablescape with DIY table runner.

Here is a list of some of the supplies I used from Jo-Ann:
Beige base fabric (1.5 yds)
Turkey fabric (1.5 yds)
Purple glass ornate canles
Silver plate chargers
White wax candles
Silver wax candles
Acrylic Crystal Wrap
Wood Round Stump
Sewing machine
Tape measure
Pins (optional)
Beige thread

The How-Tos:

Table Runner:

First, you want to fold your yard and half of fabric, and cut up one side to 54” long x 14” across. Next, fold your fabric in half (be sure it’s nice and flat, works best when ironed) right side out. You can now pin the open side closed if you would like. If it’s a straight stitch I just make sure the two sides are lined up really well. Then you are just going to sew a straight stitch all the way down to the end. Now sew up the one bottom end. Next, you will reach down into the fabric and pull it right side out. Be sure to push out your corners with your finger or a tool such as a pen or something.

Next, flip the fabric around to the last open end and with both hands on each side of the fabric corners, tuck about a quarter inch of the fabric down into the inside of the fabric. Pin this if you would like, or hold it tight. Now you will just set that shut, and you are done. You can also iron it once more if you would like.

Tablescape:

1. Start with your base pieces, such as your fabric aka your table runner. I made a simple runner from some beautiful Turkey fabric from Jo-Ann. Once the runner was sewn, I started with the fabric also from Jo-Ann and my runner.

2. Next, start working on your main center piece aka your focal point of the table. I started with the stump anchoring the center of the table.

3. The builder pieces, this is when you want to start building up, filling in, and adding all those textures with florals, floral sprigs, extra candles, lights, pinecones, etc. That is basically it. It’s important to keep things centered not just facing the back or front of the table but stand on both ends and make sure your pieces are centered there as well.

4. Place your plates, silverware, napkins, and glasses onto the table. That is it. You’re done!

I sure hope this inspires you all when preparing for you “adult” Thanksgiving tablescape. I sure adore how this tablescape turned out. I stepped out of my comfort zone on the purple shades but I’m sure glad I did.

Thank you Jo-Ann for having me again.
