5 col

Difficulty: Easy

Vintage table
Black vinyl
Table runners
Threading needle
Thick black thread
Hook-and-loop tape
Glue gun


1. Lay the black vinyl face down over the top of the table, and use a pencil to trace the shape of the tabletop. Cut it out with scissors

2. Thread the needle with thick black thread

3. Whip stitch the perimeter of the vinyl circle to the table runner. Line up the edges of the fabric, puncture through and loop over the top. Repeat until the two pieces of fabric are threaded together

Note: A whip stitch is simply a loose hand stitch that connects two pieces of material together

4. Using the glue gun, glue a strip of hook-and-loop tape to the inside edge of the table runner where it ends. This will make it easy to remove the table runner as well as latch together for a cleaner appearance while placed on the table

5. Place the cover over the table
