The actual name of this free table runner pattern is the Improv Gift Wrap Table Runner, but in pretty spring colors, those wrapped boxes will look like crosses. It might be one of the most truly Easter table runners you could make!

‘Easter Egg’ Crumb Catcher

This table topper looks like you spent a lot of time on it, but really you can finish it in a snap because the hexagons are applique.
