DIY Chevron Tablecloth

Yes, I too love the pattern chevron. My theory is that Charlie Brown set the way for this trend 😉 When I was thinking of doing my studio windows, i was trying to think of a modern take on halloween. So I went with black, white and gold. Did you know trying to find black and white chevron fabric is not the easiest thing?! So I did what I know how to do….make it myself. Here is how I made a Chevron patterned tablecloth out of a clearance white tablecloth and duck tape!

What you need:


Duck Table

Flat Surface (I used my deck)

tape measure


How to:

Measure how big you want your pattern to be (I used 17 inches as a guide to start) so every 17 inches was a peak of the zig zag.

I laid the measuring tape across the tablecloth while I was making the points because me and straight lines are not friends.

Once you do all your 17 inch patterns, you can leave as is for a big zig zag effect or you can go in and fill the space with more lines (this time every 8 inches)

PS you can iron your cloth before hand, but I have a professional steamer and love using it so I did it after I made the duck tape pattern.

And here is how I used the tablecloth in my store window!
