I’m sorry. I’m sorry, okay?! I’m sorry for all of the gold and all of the polka dots. But I’m a girl who knows what she likes, and this is what is happening right now. And I dare you to tell me it’s not adorable.

If your life is devolving into a nonstop parade of gold and polka dots as well, I highly suggest tackling this beyond-easy table runner. It’s no-sew, super fast, and high impact. So if you are on the bandwagon, gather your materials!

  • a piece of duck canvas one foot wide and long enough to accomodate your table
  • gold fabric
  • scissors
  • fabric glue
  • sponge paintbrush

Start by cutting out your gold polka dots — mine are 2″ wide. Cut enough to sprinkle around your table runner. Set them out on your runner to estimate the final placement.

One by one, brush fabric glue onto the back sides of your dots and place them (glue side down) onto the runner. Continue to smooth them over the next few minutes so that they don’t develop bubbles. I learned that one the hard way, and a couple of bubbles are still hanging around in my dots. I decided to be okay with it.

If you included any polka dots that overlap the edge of the runner, trim the excess so that the edges are even.

Let it dry and iron the runner if needed — I’d suggest ironing the back side. That’s it! I told you it was easy. I think this thing calls for a polka dot party! xoxo
