Spring Week: Easter Table Runner

When I think about spring I think of a few things; spring flowers/colors, cleaning, and Easter.  Since I was NOT in the mood to start cleaning the whole house.  I decided to go with the other two themes: spring flowers/colors and Easter.  I don't have many Easter decorations and I thought it would be fun to make a super simple table runner. 



When I came across the Ruffled Easter Egg Tutorial from Positively Splendid I knew I had to make these little eggs.  They were super easy and the tutorial is well written.


I didn't want to spend any extra money on this project, so I scrounged through my scrap pile.  I found the white fabric in my stash, I don't know what I originally used it for but it was cut into rectangles.  They each measured 8"x17".  I love the stark white with the bright colors.  I wanted the table runner to look ragged and pieced together so I just zigzagged the rectangles together.  This project was super simple and fast. 


I am not sure if I absolutely love the outcome.  I feel like it still needs something.  What does everyone think?  Does it need more, or should I leave it as is?  What should I add?  I am stumped!!

I love the eggs, I hadn't seen them so thanks for sharing. I also love the colors you put yours together with. As for the table runner, I think with a cute center piece, easter basket or something, it will look just right.

I agree with Jennifer. I think a basket of eggs or spring flowers as a center piece will be the perfect topping to your beautiful table runner.

So cute!!! I hate cleaning too!!! lol In fact, I usually get distracted with my designs and art instead of cleaning. Eventually...I have to give in though. :)
