I thought I'd show you a super easy way to create a quick table skirt. All you need is a light piece of fabric and this...
Let's get started!
I have this buffet and I use it as a focal point of holiday decor in one room. There is a Christmas tree next to it and I usually work with one theme. This year's theme is candy canes. So, I want to create a consistent color palette which means covering up the cherry wood.
I use double sided tape to temporarily wrap the table in fabric for a fitted table skirt. Now, before you get anxious, yes, I do place the tape on the wood but don't worry... it comes off easily. That being said, I don't guarantee that the tape will hold for a long time so this tutorial is meant for a quick, one evening table skirt.
The first thing you want to do is measure your fabric. You do not want excess fabric. The heavier the fabric, the more it pulls on the tape which means tension on the fabric.
For the bottom of the fabric, the part that goes to the floor, if you don't sew, cut the fabric a bit longer than needed and tuck under. Always better to cut longer than shorter.
Also, before you start on the table, make sure your fabric is ironed. You'll see why I say that later. LOL
Then we're ready to attach!
I start on the side and press the fabric into the tape smoothly and evenly.
When you get to a corner, you fold the fabric like you're wrapping the corner of a present.
Here's what it looks like in the end. See that lovely crease in the fabric? Definitely iron your fabric!
I've talked about it before and I'll say it again, a wrinkled tablecloth can ruin any table decor. Your eye automatically goes straight to the crease. (Believe me, I'll fix this.) LOL
After the taping is done, Then you can cover the top with a runner or another piece of bunched up fabric for depth. I placed a candy cane striped fabric on top just to show you. Next.. start adding your decorative pieces!
Easy, temporary table skirt!
