Yesterday I was browsing at The Dollar Tree when I found these cute, multi-colored, bamboo placemats.
I bought 3 of them to make an easy table runner for an old trunk that my husband got when he was in the military. We’ve been using the trunk as a table ever since we got married.
I lined the placemats up end-to-end.
Then I used a needle to pull some neutral toned cross-stitch floss through the ends.
After, threading down the sides I tied them off, then trimmed off the extra string.
I got out my hot glue gun and glued some ribbon on.
And, now I have a nice little table runner! 🙂

Great idea!! That looks so good. My dad has one of those trunks too and we have used it as a coffee table all my life.
That is a very clever idea! I love the old trunk too!
So very cute!!
What a neat idea, I love how it turned out!
What a great idea!! And you could make one to match many decors!
