diy | canvas drop cloth table runner

 I mentioned on Twitter that I had a new obsession…canvas drop cloths! They’re available at almost any hardware store (I bought mine at Home Depot) and they come in a variety of sizes and neutrals. The 9 x 12 canvas was $20, and after a few projects, I’ve hardly made a dent. Definitely a great buy!  

For last week’s Mother’s Day Brunch, I made several rustic canvas table runners. I ran them across the width of the table, and used them almost like placemats. They were the perfect addition of texture and really helped achieve the neutral layered look I was going for. Pictures coming soon!

Here are the steps to create these simple, no-sew table runners!

1 // Gather these supplies: scissors, tape measure, pencil, canvas drop cloth.
2 // Measure out the width and length of the runner. For width, I measured and cut mine at 16″ and then frayed about 1/4″ on each side, so the final width is about 15″. For length, this will depend on the length of your table and how much of an overhang you want.
3 // Cut along your lines.
4 // Fray the edges.

I told you it was simple! And, if you don’t want the rustic, frayed edges, you could easily use no-sew tape (I used that with the canvas for an upcoming DIY; it works well) to finish off the seams.

I have a few more canvas drop cloth DIYs planned…can’t wait to share them with you all!

    yay for canvas drop cloth! it does tend to keep on fraying if you pop it in the wash – but it isn't hard to re-fray. it also makes a great paintable surface if you (hot)glue it to wooden squares!

    Ah, love the idea of gluing to wooden squares 🙂 To help against tons of fraying, I actually just hand washed them in the sink, which seemed to be super gentle and didn't cause more fraying!

    These are lovely! I wish I could have a Mother's Day brunch with my mom and actually use these with her, but I'm sure she wouldn't mind if a little package of drop cloths arrived in the mail. 🙂

    Thanks for the idea! x
