Chalk board table runner Here’s a great idea for a table runner/food labeler from Yum Sugar. A runner that you can write on with chalk! You could also use black chalk cloth as a less expensive alternative (about $10 per yard). You can actually get a long runner by cutting 1 yard in half lengthwise, then laying the 2 pieces end to end.

Lacy Table Runner made with discarded book pages Create conversation at the dinner table with this out-of-the-ordinary runner. A discarded book with soft, worn pages works best. Lay the pages flat on the floor in the length and width you'd like your runner. On the back, carefully tape the pages together. Use a crafts decorative-edge punch to create a border that suits your style

Patriotic table runner pattern. I'm liking table runners, maybe I'll have to try my hand...not as big a time commitment as a whole quilt and you can make a lot of different ones for seasons/holidays.
