No Sew Sequin Table Runner DIY project

So when I said, yesterday, that my favorite project from this party was the coffee filter backdrop, I might have lied. Just a little. Because, I really love this diy no sew table runner! Did I mention it was no sew? Seriously, can it get better? While I do like to pull out the sewing machine every once in a while, finding a fabulous no sew project always grabs my attention.

That being said, I will warn you – this project is time intensive! I didn’t realize what I was getting myself into until it was too late to figure something else out. But, the end result was worth it. Wouldn’t this table runner be fabulous at a mermaid party? Or a beach party? Okay, how about any party that you’re hosting? Who would say no to a gold sequin table runner?

But, for those who actually want to make a diy no sew table runner – here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 inch sequins
  • clear contact paper
  1. Cut your contact paper into the size of table runner/display you want. Mine was about 12 inches wide and long enough to fit my table.
  2. Get out your sequins. I bought about 1200 sequins and used almost all of them. It’s a lot of shine, folks.
  3. Turn over your contact paper and fold back 1 inch of the paper backing.
  4. Stick the sequins in an alternating pattern over the sticky side of the contact paper.
  5. Continue until you have completed the table runner.

This table runner is gorgeous, but it’s not very durable. I would recommended storing it flat, if you can. I actually made mine with two sheets of contact paper, each a half of the length I needed. I then had them meet up in the middle of the table with the cake stands holding them down to stay in place. Making them shorter helps store them more easily – but it only works if you can have something heavy to hold them down in the center of the table!
