You may remember last fall when I showed you how to make a simple fall leaf table runner using fabric and felt. It was a really fun project, and the idea is easily customizable to any occasion or holiday. To show you what I mean, I made an Easter table runner this weekend and used bunny-shaped marshmallow Peeps as my inspiration. What a festive Easter table decoration this will be!

When making this Easter table runner, I followed most of the same techniques used in the fall table runner tutorial, so read that post for details about things like cutting the fabric to fit your table. The tutorial also shows you how to hem the edges of the fabric with a sewing machine, but I realized that it’s not actually necessary, since we’re going to cover all the edges up with our felt shapes. That means that this Easter table runner is totally no-sew, and we’re going to get it assembled with just a hot glue gun. I love it!

The first step is to cut your fabric of choice to the desired size for your table runner. Then get some coordinating colors of felt. For the most recognizable results, choose colors that are traditional for Peeps, like yellow and pink. You’ll also need some green felt for the grassy border.

To help you cut out the Peep shapes, we have a pattern for you. Download our free Peep pattern, print it onto paper, and cut the shapes out.

Then it will be a piece of cake to pin the pattern to the felt and cut it out with scissors. The most fun part of all comes next, when you’ll take a brown permanent marker and draw three little dots (two eyes and a nose) on each piece. It’s amazing how much this makes them come alive!

For the grassy border, cut your green felt into strips about 2 inches wide, and use your scissors to make a series of cuts along each long side, to resemble blades of grass.

Then apply some hot glue to the center of each strip of green felt and press it in place along the border of your fabric. Keep applying strips of green until all your edges are covered. See, if you cover it all, you won’t need to sew!

Now put a dab of hot glue on the back of each of your felt Peeps and glue them to the green border. Overlap each one slightly with the last, and you can tilt every other one to the left or right for a cute effect.

Before long, the entire border of your table runner will be covered with cute little bunny Peeps.
