Serving up snacks for guests? Dress up the ‘buffet’ with a cute table runner.

Materials I used: 

What I did: 

Wash, dry, iron and hem edges of toweling fabric to create a runner. I accidentally deleted the photos from this step…but the toweling only needs hems on the short sides. 

Create text using Silhouette Studio Designer software.

Important: flip/mirror text (right click and “flip horizontally”).

Adjust Silhouette blade settings for heat transfer in the “cut” screen.

Load iron on vinyl into machine shiny/pattered/glittered side down and click “cut”.

When complete, remove vinyl from machine and weed away excess iron on vinyl. Design/text will show backwards on the tacky side of a transparency.

Place iron on decal with transparency onto fabric. Cover with scrap fabric and apply heat with iron on high setting for 20-30 seconds. snack time table runner tutorial @diyshowoff

Pull away transparency. (If iron-on pulls up, replace transparency and repeat applying heat.)

After iron on decals are all placed, iron entire runner on the back side.

Perfect for adding a special touch to snacks for a small gathering.
