DIY: Harry Potter Valentine’s Day Table Runner

Forget the love spells and potions this Valentine’s Day. Add a little magic to your V-Day decor by making your own Harry Potter table runner using Cricut Design Space. (It’s easy enough for muggles to make.)

Harry Potter Cricut Cutout

What You Need:

  • Cricut and Cricut Design Space
  • Cricut weeder and grip mat
  • Harry Potter png files (available to download below)
  • Fabric for table runner base (length of your table)
  • 6-8 pieces of 12×12 scrapbook paper for hearts (various colors or textures)
  • 2-3 pieces of 12×12 scrapbook paper in the color of your choice
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks

To start, cut fabric for the base of your table runner to the size of your liking. I found a pre-cut roll of pink, slightly glitzy fabric in the wedding section of my local craft store. (Yep, I took the easy route.)

Next, cut hearts using this Cricut Design Space project. You’ll need enough to fill the length of your table runner, so cut 6-8 pieces of 12×12 paper. After the hearts are cut and weeded off your grip mat, place the hearts on your fabric, re-arranging them until you’re happy with their placement.

For the Harry Potter quotes and logo, I chose to make mine out of a dark burgundy cardstock paper, keeping them all on this material so that they would pop against my lighter colored hearts and fabric.

Download the Harry Potter quote and logo files below, and load them into your Cricut Design Space. Feel free to make them as large or small as you’d like. For my table runner, the quotes were all between 6-6.5 inches wide, while the Harry Potter logo and doe patronus were about 3.5 inches wide.

Cut the Harry Potter logo and quote files from your colored cardstock. After weeding the cut pieces off of your grip mat, place them on your table runner, adjusting their spacing until you are happy with their placement.

Once you have finalized the placement of pieces on your table runner, heat up your hot glue gun and carefully adhere each piece to the fabric. Note: make sure to place a piece of cardboard underneath your table runner while working with the hot glue.

Allow a few moments to dry, and you’ve got yourself a Harry Potter table runner — made with love (and a bit of magic) for Valentine’s Day.

    Oh, that’s so pretty! I usually don’t do runners because I have four kids and they tend to be very grabby, but I love decorating my mantle and I haven’t really done anything with it since switching to winter from Christmas. I think I’m going to use some of these ideas to make it Valentine themed in prep for spring!
