DIY Halloween Fabric Table Topper

Hey dolls! It’s been awhile since I shared a tutorial for anything… This baby momma business really changes the way you spend your time. :) And that’s perfectly ok with me! I love every minute of it… But I DO happen to have a sewing tutorial to share with you before Halloween rolls around! So here we go…

DIY Halloween Table Topper

The fabric for this table topper came from Joann’s. I chose four different Halloween fabrics for the top of my table topper and I used some purple fabric from my stash as the bottom. Then I cut a long triangle out of cardboard for my ‘stencil’.

Step 1: Cut three triangles of each Halloween fabric.

Step 2: Sew each of the triangles together alternating the direction in which they’re pointing to keep a fairly straight strip of fabric. To do this I laid two triangles together one on top of the other. Have the designed face of the fabrics touching while the base of one triangle meets with the point of the other. {Hope that makes sense… If I can clarify something just let me know in the comments.}

Then sew the two together, again, with the design facing inward you’ll be sewing along the underside of the fabric so that each of the seams is on the underside of the topper when you’re finished. The finished strip of triangles will look like so… This is the top side of your Halloween table topper.

Step 3: Trim down the two end triangles so that your top strip becomes an even rectangle.

Step 4: Cut a rectangle of your bottom fabric to match the top fabric (the sewn together triangles). Pin the bottom fabric and top fabric design faces together. In other words, pin them together insides out.

Step 5: Sew around your two pieces of fabric, sewing them together. Leave a small opening so you can turn them right side out. Then sew the opening closed.

Step 6: Top stitch around the edge of your table topper. I did a zig zag stitch in bright purple thread to match my Halloween fabric.
