Last winter the LoveFeast Girls got together right before Christmas. We decided to celebrate our past year and the season with a winter dinner party. I wanted to set a mood for our winter table, that was beautiful and festive, yet cozy and relaxed. I also wanted to show off the Snow Velvet Pumpkin set from LoveFeast Shop. I had a vision of creamy tone on tone layers and natural elements for my winter table.
This easy to make Winter Patchwork Sweater Table Runner DIY Project helps set the perfect table for the winter season and makes a great DIY gift.
I created this Winter Patchwork Sweater Table Runner especially for this festive night. And believe it or not, I pulled it off just an hour or so before dinner.
For this Winter Patchwork Sweater Table Runner DIY Project all you will need is : Burlap, old sweaters and suits, hot glue, and a sharp pair of scissors.
I begin my cutting my burlap on my table to fit, allowing a bit of extra to fall off each end of the table. I used good quality sweaters and suits I had gathered from a second hand store. Using quality textiles will insure an elegant and refined look to this casually cobbled patch-worked together table runner.
Good quality always shows from the luster, weave and dye of the fabric or knit.
Begin cutting, and layering the patchwork of knits and fabrics down the burlap, hot-gluing as you go. Allow for nice buttons or fur trim to show. This will add dimension and visual interest to this runner.
Interesting is beautiful.
If you really wanted to finish this up nicely you could add a layer of hand-stitching to each patch-worked part. But, with guests about to arrive, for our winter dinner party I only had time to quickly layer my table with chargers, dishes, velvet pumpkins, and paint dipped pine cones.
This Winter Patchwork Sweater Table Runner would make a beautiful hand made gift.
And, of course some candlelight.
I store this runner in the off season, rolled up and tied with a burlap string. I’m getting ready to roll it out again now that the winter season is here.
