Jessie Jane’s DIY Springtime Table Linens


  • Linen or cotton runner (you can buy a pre-made white table runner or buy fabric and make your own, linen, cotton and muslin works well)
  • Fabric dye (I always use liquid RIT dye)
  • Large pot
  • Water
  • Salt


  1. Wet your runner and wring out the water.
  2. Roll up the runner width-wise like a tube.
  3. Make your color bath according to the package instructions on the back of RIT box.
  4. Dip one end of the runner into the colored bath and hold for 3 minutes.
  5. When the color looks vibrant, rinse the runner until the water turns clear.
  6. After rinsing, re-roll your runner up and repeat the dip dye process on the other end.
  7. Rinse and let dry. Wash alone the first couple times.
