Table Toppers

I always enjoy making small projects that I can finish fast, I guess I like instant gratification. So come along and look at the little goodies I have made and at the bottom you’ll find a giveaway!

I made a this little table topper using a Zig-zag tutorial from V and Co. then I added some applique to it. This is made from batiks one of which is a neat tie dye with lots of yummy colors.

This cute little table topper was made with the leftovers from my Spring Birds Table runner tutorial. The fabrics are Pear Tree by Thomas Knauer.

I made this table topper out of scraps using my Ruby Floral Mini tutorial

Table Toppers

This piece started out using some decorator fabric in the center and then I just built around it to fit the table topper holder.

I thought I would bring my little Granny Square topper outside too.

  1. Connie, I just need to leave you a note to say how much I enjoy your blog and continue to be amazed at your wonderful creations! Thanks for creating and blogging so that I can enjoy.
    These table toppers are all wonderful though the first two are my favorites. Love the flowers in #1 – they remind me of cosmos. The colors in #2 are perfect and I love the oval framing of the tree. Great work in all of them.

    I've been following the little table toppers hop and there are so many cute ones! I love the granny squares one and the one with the pear-shaped outline in the center.

    Funny, I always thought of table toppers as the larger squares you lay directly on the table. But, having bought a wall-hanging frame from Ackfeldwire, I love seeing what can be done with some of their other frames!
