I pulled my leather jackets from the back of the closet, my nail polish has changed from white to black, and my iced coffee has been replaced with a piping hot cup of joe…it’s officially Fall, and we are starting to get into the spirit here at I Spy DIY Studio! I picked up mini pumpkins at the grocery store and gave a few a spray paint makeover, then stacked a bunch on my new DIY crosshatch pattern table runner to create the perfect tablescape. I have been wanting to make this runner forever, and love how it turned out! It’s amazing the transformation that some ribbon and heatbond can create. Stay tuned because I predict the same technique happening on pillows in the near future. Steps and supplies after the break…

What You Do:
Step 1: Lay the table runner flat and cut 14 pieces of ribbon the extend the width on the runner leaving an inch of overhang on each side.  Cut 4 pieces that extend the long length on the runner, plus the inch overhang on each end.
Step 2: Cut pieces of Stitch Witchery that are the same size of the ribbons.
Step 3: Start with the short pieces, lay the Stitch Witchery on the on table runner with the ribbon directly on top. Space the ribbons 4inches apart, then iron the pieces to the fabric. Make sure that there is extra ribbon overlapping both edges of the table runner.
Step 4: Next, repeat with the long pieces, making sure  they are all 4inch from each other.
Step 5: To cleanly hem the ribbon, flip the table runner over, fold the excess stitch witchery and ribbon over the side, and iron it to the fabric.

    This DIY project looks great! The black and white will definitely go with anything. I love that you also showed a step by step process of how to actually create this DIY project. But for those of us that are visual learners, is there a Youtube video where you are giving a step-by-step tutorial of this? If so, that’d be great and extremely helpful!
