No-Sew Burlap Table Runner

No Sew Burlap Table Runner by Inspired by Charm

One of the hottest fabrics in home décor and fashion, burlap lends a country or natural feel to any room. Its eye-catching open weave, durability, and rough texture make the eco-friendly material a bit popular nowadays, but I love it nonetheless!

This fun burlap option from Inspired by Charm features a pretty gold polka dot pattern that makes the brown piece of cloth really stand out. If you are into rustic style, this table runner is a great option. There is no need to sew or hem the sides, as the unfinished look is ideal for this fabric.

Butcher Paper Table Runner

Table runners can be created from anything – even paper! An affordable and customizable option, butcher paper allows you and the kids to have fun by writing or drawing messages and designs on it. Because it is disposable, you can just throw it out after the meal and when it gets soiled.

A paper runner makes a good background for simple accents. Add small plants or candles for a bit more visual appeal.

Plaid Table Runner

I love plaid, and I think choosing it for a table runner is like dressing up your table with a cozy blanket. If you want to make your dining area look warm and welcoming for fall, plaid is a great option. This checkered fabric, which became popular in the ‘70s as an element for interior design, is still relevant today and I don’t think it’s going out of style anytime soon.

Choose a color combination that matches the throws in your living room. Yellows, oranges, reds, and browns are perfect for the cold months ahead.

Ticking Table Runner

Tightly-woven for durability, ticking was originally used for pillows and mattresses. But because of its lovely design, it has found its way into modern times as cushion covers, furniture upholstery, curtains, and tablecloths. Ticking is really unique with its striped pattern in subdued colors and looks especially charming when paired with gourds and fall greenery. Like plaid, a ticking table runner gives your table a cozy look, making your dining room more inviting.

Fall Foliage Table Runner

When it comes to beautifying your home, you cannot go wrong with nature. Arrange some fall foliage and produce, such as gourds and pumpkins, and you have a table runner that brings the amazing natural forms and colors of autumn into your home.


Make an effort to keep your dining table in sync with fall. By selecting a seasonal table runner, you can create the right mood to better enjoy your autumn dishes with your loved ones.
