Beaded Sequin Fringe Table Cloth

Table looking a little drab?  Fancy it up with a tablecloth!  This week I wanted to spruce up a little a night stand with a tablecloth and fringe.  It’s a quick project and requires no sewing!

 Supplies:

  • Measure the surface of the table you would like to cover and add 5 inches to the length and width. So…if your table surface is 35″ x 30″ then you would need a piece of fabric that is 40″ x 35″. HINT: most fabric stores sell fabric that is between 44″ to 54″ wide, so for a small table you might only need 1 yard (FYI: 36″ in a yard) I picked medium weight cotton in mint green to match the ball fringe from my lampshade project.
  • Add the width and the length of your fabric measurement and multiply that number by two. Add a couple inches for good measure (Pun fully intended) and now you have the measurement for your fringe. I decided on 4.25″ Beaded Bone Sequin Fringe in black…. mostly because in combination with the mint green fabric, it reminds me of mind chocolate chip ice cream and that is my favorite.
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Unique Stitch Glue

 

Making The Table Cloth:

  1.  Once you have cut out the fabric, all you have left to do is glue the fringe to the edge. No need to hem it since the glue will prevent any fraying. You can sew this project if you like, but today I was feeling especially lethargic and sometimes there is nothing wrong with cutting corners.
  2.  Apply glue to the backside of the ribbon that the fringe hangs from. I would suggest adding it in about 5 inch sections at a time to ensure a straight application. Press the glued-up side of the ribbon to the edge of your fabric. Remember to let the dangly part of the fringe point away from the fabric.
  3. When you get to the end fold over a piece of the ribbon and secure the fold with some fabric glue. Pinch it together for a moment until the glue begins to dry. Let this finished end overlap slightly over the raw edge of where you started. Cut off access fringe.
  4. You’re done!
