DIY table runners

hey everyone! it has been a while since my last post; we have been busy enjoying visitors, reconnection with old friends, planning our wedding + loving chicago in the summer! although its been a crazy past few weeks, i've managed to set aside some time and make some progress with wedding planning (including purchasing my dress!). i am now down to the details + have been focused on table decor. i am not a fan of the table runners provided by the hotel, so i am seriously  considering making my own table runners. i've done some research on how one goes about making table runners + it seems pretty doable (even for a non sewer)! here are some super creative examples of unique DIY table runners : 
write notes to your guests with this sweet chalkboard runner.
here's a tutorial on how to decorate your table runner with chevron stripes.
why not use wallpaper as a table runner? 
this pinwheel table runner is a perfect alternative for floral centerpieces. 
wouldn't a screen printed burlap runner be great for a rustic wedding?
i adore this vintage book table runner! 
amy atlas is my hero - who else would've thought to make a necco wafer table runner? love it!
this is such a great idea : all you need is burlap, ribbon, hemming tape + an iron.
get busy with some painters tape + make a custom painted table runner.
phew - so many ideas!
have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
