Effortless and No Sew Table Runner

Oh how I wish that I could sew something. Maybe one of these days I will have a chance to learn, but until then I will have to rely on my best friend Heat N Bond to give me the feeling as if I have done a sewing project.

I purchased a roll of denim material in a roll with a trellis pattern on it from Michaels for around $6. I used about half the roll for this project. 

Last year, I had picked up this table runner at Hobby Lobby for less than $10. I had saved it until I had a way I could make a simple update to it. I did not want to paint it or stencil it. I figured it would be cute to add this denim fabric to it.

Heat N Bond is so simple to use. All you need is an iron to help you adhere it to a fabric, and attach the fabric to your surface.  I purchased the Ultra Hold version because I knew the denim was thick. You use an iron to attach the Head N Bond to the demin fabric, and then you peel off the paper backing. Then you place the denim face up on the burlap runner to and use the iron to fuse the two pieces of fabric together.  I just placed it straight down the middle and it took about ten to fifteen minutes to get it completely attached.
I added it with my owl vase that I found at Michaels last year on clearance for $3 and some flowers I picked up while I was grocery shopping on afternoon.

Gives my usually neglected table a little something between the holiday related items I may throw on there every once in a while. Also, it seems none of the kids are interested in pulling it off which I consider to be a win in my book. Thanks for stopping by!


  1. You have the best taste in fabric. Your table runner looks great. Love the owl vase too :)

  2. I was just telling my hubby last night that I wish I could sew, just the basics, that all that I ask for! Your runner looks fabulous, like something you would pay for at Kirkland HOmes or something. Love the fabric choice.
