I made a table runner last year out of red and white ticking fabric. I like it but have been admiring quilted, patchwork Christmas tree table runners for a while. I have been meaning to make one but I run out of time every year to make one. It’s something that I need to start earlier in the year.
Instead of making that quilted table runner this year, I decided to jazz up the table runner that I had and add some embellishments to it that I cut out with my Cricut Maker. I just love DIY holiday decorating! And the Cricut Maker makes it even easier, especially when it comes to cutting fabric. I love using the Cricut Rotary blade for small sewing projects like this.
I started out by cutting large triangles of black and white buffalo check fabric. I simply inserted a triangle shape into Design space and sized it to fit on my table runner. You can find them here. At this point I decided to make this a “no sew” project. So instead of sewing on the triangles, I opted to cut out 7 more triangles out of double-sided adhesive interfacing.
Using the Cricut EasyPress2, I pressed the interfacing onto the back of each “tree” triangle, and then pressed them onto the table runner.
Then to add a bit of shimmer, I cut out a star shape that I found in Design Space. I used metallic iron on vinyl for the stars and used the Cricut EasyPress2 to attach them to the top of each “tree”.
The stars add just the right amount of bling!
I love how it looks on my long, farmhouse table! And I can’t wait to set the table for Christmas Eve dinner!
I’ll be bring out the utensil Christmas Stocking holders that I made last year with the Cricut Maker! These stockings were one of the first projects I made with the Cricut Maker.
I knew when I upgraded to a Cricut Maker last year that my crafting world would open up. With its expandable suite of tools and advanced Rotary blade and Adaptive Tool System (including Knife Blade and Scoring Wheels,) Cricut Maker™ gives you the freedom to make virtually any DIY project. It is a professional-level cutting performance machine, accessible to everyone and I’m just scratching the surface of what this machine can do. The Cricut Rotary Blade was used in today’s project.
