What you need

Various colors of felt
Embroidery thread
Craft glue


The first thing you need to do is measure your table to make your runner a suitable length.

Cut your felt to suit the length you would like and make it around 30 cm wide.

If you have a wider table it might like more balanced if you make the runner wider too.

Sew a 1 cm hem all the way around the cloth and cut the corners of each end to give it a pointed finish.

For the Christmas shapes use felt scraps to make a holiday character on each end.

Secure with a few dabs of glue and then embroidery around the edges for a detailed finish.

For Christmas patterns, use children’s coloring in books or draw around Christmas cookie cutters for a simple pattern.
