Inexpensive Christmas Table Runner!

I found these felt trees at the Dollar Tree and just grabbed them because I thought that they would come in handy for something. On my drive home I racked my brain thinking of ways that I could incorporate them into something, but nothing came to me. Once I got home I threw them on the table and my 4 year old son started playing with them and laying them out in a in all fairness this is HIS table runner idea!

These are the felt trees, they came in white, red, and green. Then I added some like a half yard of burlap and sewed the edges, then frayed them to the stitch line. I liked the burlap to not hang off the side because everyone complains about it when it does, so I just framed out the middle of my table with it!

Table #1. This is my favorite...I think.

Table #2.

Table #3. This is the Hub's favorite, and maybe my other fav.

Table #4. This is the one that my son did that gave me the inspiration to use them as a table runner.

So this is where I need YOUR help!
 What one should I do?
 I can't decide! I want to sew the one that I choose in place so that when I clean my table off it will just stick together and I won't have to center all the pieces again!
Have a great weekend!
P.S. I will be back on Sunday with this month's V.T./ neighbor gifts!

I am linking to all of these wonderful parties!!

I would be honored to have you feature my Strawberry Cream Horns! What wonderful decorations. I need to run over and see what they have. I love them all, but I agree with hubby. So cute.


I like #3. I guess I'm kinda a symmetrical person.

I like #2. I kinda liked the way it extended to the edge of the tabletop.
When I get a bigger, rectangular, table, I am going to have to consider that burlap tablecloth. I really like it. I'm not too big on having a round table. They look great, but I simply don't find them practical for a family of 5 to crowd around.

I like #3 I like how it has a balance to it :)

I vote for #3. What a pretty contrast, the white against the burlap. I'd love for you to link this to my Fabric Fun Thurs. party.
