DIY table runner

Hey y’all. You want a crazy easy DIY do you? Like one that you can practically do in your sleep … if you are a sleep seamstress and if you are VERY adept with needles.

Well, try out this hand-sewn tassel quilted tea towel runner. Even Charlie could do it.

Read the steps above, but basically its like the easiest DIY ever and so cheap its weird.

1. Buy these Ikea tea towels (four for $3.99),  grab yerself some yarn and a needle. You are practically done already.

2. Sew it. We chose to do some x’s because we thought it would show up more than just a solid straight stitch. But you can get crazy with it if you want.

3. Make your tassels (see direction above). You can use multiple color yarn, or contrasting color with the stitching.

4. Attach said tassels.

BOOM. Y’all.

And there you have it. The easiest thing that has ever happened to your life aside from not doing any DIY at all, but then what kind of person are you? Kidding. duh.

My friend Scott styled this, photographer David Tsay shot it for Redbook, and Stephanie Todaro assisted on the DIY. They are all awesome.
