Creating A Little House on the Praire Tablerunner

Step One. Measure your table to ensure you have the correct length of fabric. After measuring your table and deciding on your choice of fabric, cut to the desired length and lay it out flat on the floor or table.

  • Step Two. Fold each side of the fabric, about an inch. Open it back up and line the No Sew Tape inside of the folded edge, then fold the edge of the fabric back over it.

  • Step Three. Run the iron down each side of the folded edge of the fabric. I recommend running the iron back and forth at least two – three times to ensure the no sew tape properly holds together. Set this tablerunner aside.

  • Step Four. After you have printed and cut out your Christmas Template, lay it on top of a square piece of fabric. Once you cut the Christmas Tree out, you will want to repeat this step several times.

  • For me, I decided it was easier to just draw a triangle on the back of each piece of fabric and cut it out. I drew a variety of sizes until I had about 20 fabric triangles.

  • Step Five. Once I had all of my triangles cut out, I placed them on top of the tablerunner. I then picked each one up and placed a few pieces of no sew tape down and ironed the fabric triangle onto it. I repeated this step until each triangle was in place on the tablerunner.

  • Step Six. For the trunk, I decided to use burlap. Another good option is to use a piece of leftover fabric. I cut small strips of burlap, then cut them into squares and put them at the bottom of each triangle using the no-sew tape. You can also use your hot glue gun if you want to complete this step a little quicker.

  • Step Seven. Now comes the fun part! Using a mini hot glue gun, I put little dabs on the Christmas trees and quickly placed the buttons on top.

  • Initially my plan was to use red ribbon to intertwine in the buttons, but decided that I didn’t like how it looked. However, if you give it a try, come back and let me know!

  • Since I had some fabric left over, I decide to make cloth napkins to match this Little House on the Prairie® Tablerunner. It’s pretty easy and you can complete this project in about 20 minutes!

Step One. Using a 12×12 square, I folded it in a vertical half.

  • Step Two. I cut a 12 inch piece of burlap and set it aside.
  • Step Three. Using more no sew tape, I lined the back of the fabric with it, placing the piece of burlap on top of it.
  • Step Four. After running the iron over the fabric and burlap three times, I repeated this process five more times.

  1. I loved little house as a child and my family grow up watching it now my grandchildren watch it and they have grown to love it.

  2. This is a great idea. I would love to have seen a larger picture of the entire table runner …not just sections. I am a little confused about the last two frames? The red section with the burlap …where does that go on the runner? It is very nice that it is “no sew”. Thanks!

    • If you look at the subheading those are for complementary cloth napkins. “DIRECTIONS TO CREATE LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE® CLOTH NAPKINS” You can see glimpes of the cloth napkins in use on the Little House inspired tablescape

      The photo under Step Seven gives a very nice overview of the whole table runner project and all the little trees in one photo. The nice thing is each can have it’s own unique look depending on what buttons you use to adorn your design! When you finish your project please share it with us on the hashtag #LittleHouseMoment! We would love to see what you came up with. 🙂
