10 Inspired DIY Table Linen Projects

10 DIY table linen tutorials at Babble.com

I have this thing where I hoard table linens. It started years ago and it’s an obsession that just keeps growing. I am constantly picking up tablecloths, runners and cloth napkins when I see them at flea markets or marked down on clearance. Why this love for table linens? Well, in a nutshell, they instantly change the mood and feel of a space, making them perfect to gussy up your everyday decor or make a party shine. Lately I’ve really been wanting to try my hand at creating my own table linens, so today I am sharing 10 of my favorite ideas with you! From runners to tablecloths, most of these ideas use basic supplies and most of them don’t involve sewing. It’s time to set the table in style!
