Summer is here and it’s time for all the fun activities that come with it! I’ve always loved watching the fireworks and have some wonderful memories of doing that with my family as a child. My family always had a party at someone’s house and then we all headed out to see fireworks. I know that being the host of parties can be hectic and stressful. Of course you want to make a great impression! That’s why I’m excited today to share with you this 4th Of July Table Runner! It’s easy and inexpensive. Plus it’s great for decorating your party tables or for your dining table in your home.
Here’s what you need to make your 4th of July Table Runner:

- Burlap-I used 2 yards but your amount will depend how long your table is and if you want it hanging over the edge or not
- 1 Red Bandana-I picked mine up at the dollar store, but this is a better deal if you’re making multiples of this table runner
- 1 Blue Bandana-Better deal for blue bandanas
- Hot glue and glue gun or needle and thread
- Star Patterns (Print them here)
- White Ribbon
- Mod Podge
- Small paint brush
Here’s how to make a 4th of July table runner that your party guests will adore!
- Cut your burlap to the length and width you want. I cut mine to 6 feet long and 14 inches wide but yours will vary depending on the size of your table. 14 inches wide should be suitable for most tables, but the length should be adjusted for your table.
- Brush on a thin line of Mod Podge around the edge of your burlap to keep it from fraying. It will make the fabric stiff. So just use a small amount around the edge.
- Print and cut the star patterns.
- Trace the stars onto the back side of your bandanas. I cut 4 large stars of each color and 4 small stars of each color.
- If your stars are creased, iron them to get them nice and flat.
- Arrange your stars on the burlap to your liking. I staggered them and alternated colors. Be sure to leave room at the ends for your bows.
- Once you have them placed where you like, use hot glue or a needle and thread to attach them to the burlap. I used hot glue. My advice if you use hot glue, is to use a very small amount right at the edge or small dots on the edge because it does show through the bandanas a tiny bit, especially the red one.
- Tie 2 bows using your white ribbon and hot glue or sew them to the ends of your 4th of July table runner.
That’s it! Super simple and adorable!
