DIY Geometric Table Runner

Baby Girl Ward was born recently (view pics of the cutie here!), so while I’m out trying to raise her proper, I’ve asked some amazeballs bloggers to visit! Today’s post comes from Laurel Stavros of A Bubbly Life! This lady has got it together. She is one of my fave DIYers on the internet! Take it, Laurel.

After making a geometric tablecloth that I fell in love with, I wanted to do something a bit easier… and I found the solution in a table runner!  I love playing around with the geometric trend and this DIY is simple and fast- I chose black and white for mine, but any color works!


  • Runner (I purchased fabric at Joann’s for mine)
  • Craft or Fabric Paint
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Foam Brush
  • Measuring Tape

Creating your triangles with painter’s tape is easy:

Each triangle on the side measures 2 inches (I did not hand measure them all, some I eyeballed 😉
After setting up your design with painter’s tape (press firmly down), fill in the area with paint and carefully lift painter’s tape up.
I lift the tape while paint is still wet, therefore, I did my designs in three sets- each long side individually, then the middle:

Each middle triangle measures approximately 4 inches.

The table runner only takes 30 minutes or less!  Simple DIYS are my favorite.
