Christmas is just around the corner and I can’t stop myself from filling my house with buffalo plaid everything! Today I’m showing you this simple DIY buffalo plaid table runner that even a complete beginner can make.

- 1 1/2 yards of your favorite fabric. It doesn’t have to be buffalo plaid;-) Here is a link to red and black buffalo check fabric sold by the half yard on Amazon.
- Fabric scissors.
- Thread to match fabric
- Sewing machine. Here is a link to my model. It works great for beginning sewers such as myself.
- Straight sewing pins
The dimensions of my fabric was 39 x 59 inches. I cut it down to 17 x 59 inches for this table runner. I have another fun project I will be posting about soon using the remainder of the fabric. Stay tuned for that!
Measure about 1/2 inch from the longest edges and pin.
Iron the pinned edge to make sewing your straight seam easier.
By the way, I have mentioned several times in recent posts that I’m not much of a seamstress. A tip that is pretty basic, but I somehow overlooked: if your pins have a plastic head, ironing over them will melt the head. Oops!
Sew a straight seam along both long edges.
Repeat steps 2-5 for the narrow ends.
You’re done with your DIY Buffalo Plaid Table Runner!
Super easy and it adds so much color to my winter living space. Check out the deer pillow! I posted about several inexpensive Christmas pillows here.
I love our coffee table. If you’d like to try this look yourself, my tutorial about how I painted it is at Painted Furniture / A Before and After.
