Pottery Barn Knock Off for Fourth of July Decor /Table Red White Blue


coming up on this episode of designed to
the nines we are preparing for our patriotic tablescape with a couple of
Pottery Barn dupes and another bonus dupe but the end so much stars so much
stripes so much fun if that sounds good to you then stay tuned I’m NataLee Callahan and this is the first time we’re meeting hello and welcome I’m so
glad you could join us and my hope is that you’ll enjoy the content so much
today that you would consider subscribing to my channel below and
turning the notifications on because I bring you weekly tutorials and all
things to do at the home and I got a lot of really fun things planned over the
next few weeks and I would hate for you to miss a thing
today’s episode is in conjunction with Yummie from the Latinas next door look
for less challenge and her co-hosts this month is Casey from coffee with my
sunshine now I have enjoyed so much participating in this challenge and I’ve
done some fun pottery barn dupes I’ve done some from williams-sonoma next
month I have a dupe plan for Balor design so you’re gonna want to stay
tuned for that with all of the fun patriotic holidays coming up I’m going
to be doing some projects that will be knocking off pottery barn items I’m
really excited about it I love knocking off pottery barn items however I do buy
them sometimes but I’ve got some really great dupes for you today that’s gonna
save you a ton of money and look so adorable for your patriotic themed
tablescapes so I went over to pottery Barn’s website looking for some
inspiration for 4th of July and I saw some really cute things there including
a table runner and the table runner had two options one was Stars and Stripes
and then one was just stars and I just loved them but they were $70 for the
runners and I and I knew that we could get the look for less so though table
runner is going to be in all stars but I knew I needed to bring the stripes
for my patriotic theme table so I went over to their napkin section on Pottery
Barn and I came across these really cute ticking napkins and then I looked at
their price tag and it was $90 for a set of four I was just totally blown away
beautiful though I loved the way they looked so I’m like that’s what I’m gonna
do is I’m gonna make some making napkins it’s gonna be so easy so I got my star
fabric from Hobby Lobby on sale for six ninety seven a yard I got two yards
because I wanted to have a little extra maybe for this project a little bit
later but I think we’re gonna be able to get away with squeezing out in one yard
of fabric and I’ll show you how we’re gonna do that my red and cream ticking I
also got at Hobby Lobby and it is a really soft fabric I think it will make
great napkins and it was on sale for 349 a yard I got a couple of yards of that I
don’t think we’ll use all of it and so I’m really excited about it now I wanted
to offer you two different ways to do it because I know not everybody sews and
doesn’t feel comfortable sewing or have a sewing machine so I’m gonna do each
project differently so for the table runner I’m going to be using some
iron-on adhesive and so there won’t be any sewing on that and for the napkins I
just wanted to sew those and just have the the nice ham on it I learned how to
sew when I was 8 years old and my husband actually says Oh Chloe I’ll
probably be in the doghouse for sharing it with you so if I could learn to sew
at 8:00 and he can sew I promise you you guys you can do it buy an inexpensive
sewing machine possibly borrow one from a friend or your parent or somebody who
has a sewing machine that would let you try it out making napkins would be a
perfect way to start your sewing it will be easy but again I wanted to offer you
two options so we’re gonna do both so let’s get started this will be a no sew
option for you and you can take these principles and use them on the napkins
if you’d like but again we’re just going to do it on the table runner for this
one we’re going to be using some heat and bond tape you could use
peel and stick it’s basically adhesive tape you’re gonna need an iron so you
I’ve got mine heating up I’ve got a Renta I love my Rowenta I can’t believe
the difference having a good iron makes so this fabric is only 45 inches wide if
you were able to find a fabric that’s similar that’s 54 inches wide you could
do the hundred and eight inches that the Pottery Barn is I’m only going to do 90
inches which is the width of this twice because my table is a little shorter and
so it will work just fine you could also cut it the other direction as well what
we’re going to do is I’m going to measure my fabric to 19 inches and then
I am just going to cut on that line and we’re going to cut two panels and at some point you can just fold it
over on itself and use itself as their pattern okay so now we’ve got our two
panels and before I start doing anything I always like to press out my fabrics so
you can get out any wrinkles and have a nice fresh start
all right so we’re done ironing our panels and what we are going to do now
is we are going to take our bonding tape Oz box so we can use it and if you hear
any background noise I apologize they’re building a house next door to ours and
they are working outside today and they’ve got loud music going on and
they’re having a good time so we’re gonna have to put a seam in ours because
I’m using two panels and I thought that that would be okay because that I’m
gonna be putting a center piece over it and I just didn’t think that it would be
a big deal if it had a seam in it so we’re gonna take our hem tape and we’re
gonna match it up to the width of our runner and then we are going to cut it
and then we’re going to iron this on and just to protect our iron from getting
all gooey I’m just gonna put a paper towel down and you can see that we’ve
got the tape on and now we need to peel it back and we are gonna take our other
panel and we are gonna put right sides together and line it up really nicely
just kind of slowly iron it on it doesn’t take too long but you want to
make sure that you melt the glue you should have a seam okay so I allowed it
to cool and then I kind of fold it out and press down the middle just to create
a nice crisp seam now we’re going to start doing the edge banding now I’m
only going to be using this may be a handful of time so we’ll
probably pull it out on Memorial Day and fourth of July so the proper way to
probably do this is to go around create a lip and do it like a finished edge but
I’m just gonna leave the rough edges exposed and that’s going to be fine it’s
not gonna be getting heavy use so I think that it will hold up just fine so
what we’re gonna do is we’re just going to kind of repeat that process on all of
the seams so just follow the instructions on the box as far as how
long to hold that iron down that creates a nice crisp line without stitching okay
so our table runner is done and it turned out great
and our version was about $10 and it could be $7 if you decided to sew it the
bonding tape was about 350 and so you’re about 1050 the original was about 69
fifty or $70 so a really good savings for an almost identical look the pros of
working with the heat bond tape are that you get a finished product that doesn’t
have any stitching in it as well as you don’t need a sewing machine or any
sewing skills the cons against it are that it takes a
little bit longer than it would to have sewn it and the center seam wasn’t quite
as flat as you could get it by sewing it because you can open up the fabric and
flatten it out really nice and flat but honestly for a table runner this is
great it’s gonna work perfectly on our patriotic table I’m thrilled with it so
I think it’s a success let me know in the comment section below if you liked
this method if you would prefer to use the heat tape over sewing or if you like
it for certain applications let me know that down below also let me know if you
think this is a successful duper nut stay tuned with me to the very end
because I have a special bonus project for you and you’re not gonna want to
miss out on that one because it’s gonna be really cute as well I’m ready to
start my napkins that are going to be just a ginormous
of savings what I’m going to do is this fabric should tear and give us a
straight line so I’m just going to start by tearing the fabric get us on a
straight line that will help us just keep the squares nice and square and
sometimes it will like kind of snag a little bit and you just take your
fingers and run it along and pull out that snag and we are making 20 inch
squares so what I’m going to do is measure down 21 and a half to allow some
seams and this should tear straight so I just make a snip and then I rip it like
so and we’re going to just do it the same thing in the other direction make a
snip I usually snip about an inch so you have enough to grab and then so that’s
our first square and it causes it to kind of curl around the edges so I think
at this point I will iron them out that’s gonna be so adorable and love it
I’m gonna need six for my table so you just tear out what you need for yours I
want to show you how I do this and I’ve already done it on the sides but we just
fold it up like a quarter of an inch and I’m just eyeballing it because this
doesn’t really need to be that perfect because we’re not hemming something it’s
just to have a nice finished edge and not have a frayed edge so I’m I balling
about a quarter of an inch and I’m pressing it down with the iron which
creates a nice crease and this iron does a fantastic job we’re going to fold it
over about a half an inch again I’m just eyeballing but what I want to show you
is here on the corner I actually fold it on a 45 degree angle and I kind of tuck
that in you don’t have to do that but it just
gives it a more finished quality with this all iron and with all of these
edges iron down we are ready to sew so I’m going to sew up this seams to this
it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes but if you’re not sure how to
sew you’re gonna want to pop on over to my IG TV channel because I show you all
of this sewing basics from threading the machine to winding a bobbin to doing a
straight stitch it’s all in my episode this week over an IG TV so if you’re not
sure how to sew yours and then definitely want to check that out
because this project is a perfect starter sewing project it couldn’t be
simpler and you could totally do it you just need to get a little bit of
learning basics if you already so then all you do is sew it up and that’s what
we’re going to do right now I promised you a bonus project and
that’s what we’re going to do right now on Amazon I found a couple different
options as far as flag banners like kind of like the long narrow kind of flag
banners to hang outside I wanted to do that kind of like behind the food table
or like on my arches outside and I just thought that they would be really cute
the ones that I found online were about $33 to about $45 per panel and so it was
a little bit pricey and I thought that we could do a little bit better and I
thought this would go really well with our other projects today so what I found
is I picked up this red and kind of off-white striped
outdoor fabric from Walmart of all places it was about $7 a yard and I got
two yards of it and then we have left over of the star fabric from our table
runner project and then I cut it down lengthwise down the center and that’s
going to be the top portion of our banner and so that’s already pre-cut so
what we’re going to do is we’re going to take this fabric also cut it down the
seam lengthwise and that should give us 28 and a quarter each panel we should be
able to get two panels out of our fabric making this a very affordable project
and the fun thing about these projects are that once we make them we can use
them year after year after year I have my panels cut out and it doesn’t that
look like a flag just we’re going to start by sewing these two fabrics
together then we’re just gonna hem around the entire panel and then I’m
going to create just a little pocket so that we can slide it onto a dowel our
panel is complete I will hang it on a wooden dowel outside if you want to see
what it looks like all finished some hung and everything then you’re gonna
want to stay tuned for next week’s episode where I do my patriotic
tablescape poolside it’s gonna be amazing
so stay tuned but that’s what we got so far our projects are done this is our know
so table runner looks so much like the original $10 vs. $70 and if you wanted
to save a few extra bucks you could sew it and it would be a little bit cheaper
because you don’t have to get the hem tape but that turned out so good I’m so
thrilled with it and then our set of four napkins these were about five
dollars versus $80 massive savings same look it’s awesome I am totally excited
to do this tablescape I really loved my Easter table and I really love my
Thanksgiving table but I am Telling You this is definitely gonna be my favorite
it’s gonna be poolside it’s gonna be just so much I can do you can hardly
stand it so you’re gonna want to come back next week to see that for sure it
is gonna be just a blast I’ve had so much fun putting it together

  1. Which method would you use? No Sew Option or Easy Sew? Was this a successful dupe? Let me know!

  2. Hi Natalie, I love the freedom knowing how to sew gives me. Allows me to purchase any fabric and create my own colour and pattern scheme.

  3. Hi girly you'r so cute! I love pottery barn style, thank's for sharing awesome 4 of July decor. enjoyed watching it!

  4. I love all of these wonderful Pottery Barn dupes!!!! I would sew mine since I'm old and learned how to sew with my mother on her Singer treadle machine many moons ago. You are so talented and creative; very few young women even know how to turn on a sewing machine. xoxoxo

  5. Years ago my mom's cousin introduced me to iron on seams for a double knit tablecloth that lasted forever! The fabric wore out way before those seams even with drying multitudes of times. I would do either method, but I would have to match up the stars in the center somehow, and I don't know how!!! Maybe hand basting first? I loved your napkins. Oh, my goodness. As usual with your dupes, I like your napkins so much better! My sewing machine was stolen, of all things! I may have to get another one. Love the banners so much. My Patriotic theme this year really focuses on the darker, richer colors and Lady Liberty. Love your channel.

  6. I’d do the easy sew! Either way they turned out beautifully! I’ll save over 80$ every time! Great job! Can’t wait for the 4th of July set up!🗽🇺🇸

  7. I am with the no sew option but I am tempted to try the easy sew. Great look just in time for my kiddos birthday

  8. I would definitely do a no-sew option since I have zero clues how to sew. I love the simplicity with the runner and the napkins. Thanks for this!

  9. Hi Natalee, love the ideas! Never used the iron on fusing but I have made curtains for our lake house using the fabric glue. They turned out great and have been durable. Can't wait to see your table scape!

  10. Just came across your channel and I love it. New subbie and I can't wait to see your table scape!!

  11. Beautiful! Omgosh I did not know that you are supposed to pull the white part of the tape off. I've been using it for years. Lol on me! 😁

  12. I found you through the playlist; it's my first time checking it out and I'm participating. I knocked off Pottery Barn too! I absolutely LOVE your runner, I may have to steal that from you. I love the stars. I agree, learning to sew is much easier than you may think & such a good skill to have! Thanks for sharing! New sub!

  13. I love the table runner & napkins! You did fantastic! Such a savings too. I really need to perfect my sewing skills 😄 I know the very basic stuff, but am horrible at sewing. Thanks for participating!!💛

  14. I would probably do the heat tape or get my mom to sew for me. Lol . I can't sew and she is a seamstress. Love it. thanks for sharing

  15. Hi NataLee 💕 WOW WOW you did a amazing job with your tablerunner😍😍 soooo beautiful. And the bonus is awsome, love the banner😍😍. NataLee hope you have a beautiful and blessed day 😀❤️ Janny

  16. Hello, I’m Angie Miranda from Texas. I subscribed! I love watching the look for less challenges as well as all the projects that I get to be inspired by. I love love love the striped napkins just because that’s one of my favorite fabrics all year round, but I loved everything 😊 can’t wait to see it all put together!

  17. Ohhhhh! I love that runner!!! I’m all about the Patriotic decor! 😍😍 Love those napkins too. Thank you for joining the challenge again this month! 💕

  18. Been sewing since childhood as well!
    If you like the frayed look, you could just narrow zigzag or decorative stitch near the edges instead of turning for a clean hem!

  19. Natalee, you are so darling and I'm newly subscribed. This was a GREAT priced project and I'm so happy to see you encouraging others to sew. Sewing is so easy and many people are afraid of trying it. I learned how to sew really young as well (age 6). I adore this project and was shocked at the price of those napkins. I would love to collab with you sometime soon. Let me know if you are interested 🙂

  20. Great job NataLee! I love the look of ticking fabric. Your table is going to be “eye candy” for sure! 😂 I love an easy, no-sew project. Well done 👍🏻

  21. Awesome job designed2nines. 😍Who need Pottery Barn. I really like how your napkins and table runner turned out very pretty. 💞😃 Thanks for sharing your awesome decor project. I always enjoy participating in this collab.👍

  22. Hello, a new subscriber from Yami & Casey's channels. I absolutely love your dupes! I would rather sew than not.
    I love the banners. And since I have a lot of red I also love those napkins! I think they would look great on my red tablecloth.
    Have a Happy Memorial weekend!

  23. Omg great dupe! $90 for 4 napkins is insane! I love the new see option especially since my sewing machine died

  32. I really enjoyed watching this video !  I TOTALLY LOVED  IT ! OMG such great ideas!!!! Thank you so very much for sharing your ideas.

  33. Hello 👋 this is my first time watching one of your videos and now a subscriber, I enjoyed your channel very much. I’m anxious to see more. I’m basically a Dollar tree diy’r so it is great to see what can be done for less, you nailed it on this one. I can’t believe the price of those napkins at Pottery Barn!!!!! Very nice thank you.

  34. So very glad I came across your channel, I am Irish with an American husband living in Ireland as you can imagine finding decorations to help make him feel at home on the 4th July is near to impossible plus import charges on goods is unbelievable, now I can make some things for our back garden for our annual 4th July BBQ – Thank you !

  35. New sub! Just came from Yami♥️ I am such a red, white & blue girl ~ I LOVE your projects!!!! Thank you so much for adding the bonus into the mix🇺🇸 I would use whatever method I have the most time for. So either one works!! Hugs from Michigan♥️

  36. Ugh. You talk too much before getting to the tutorial. So much extemporaneous chitchat. Just a tip, please shorten your instructions and get to the point! Thanks.

  37. I brought a white tablecloth to layer with a table cloth that is blue with white stars. I have to work on my basket of patriotic signs. This video gave me the idea. Thank you.

  38. I adore these projects! I would totally sew everything because I’ve been sewing since childhood, and it’s so much easier. But I think it’s great that you gave a non-sew method for those who don’t sew. Thank you so much! 💥❤️🇺🇸⭐️

  39. I love watching your videos and please keep them coming. You could always use a coordinating fabric to cover the seam on your table runner.

  40. These turned out fabulously! I’ve used both, the sew and no-sew versions so if I was in a hurry I’d definitely be sewing. Thanks so much for sharing.
    #kindnessmatters

  41. Everything came out beautiful, I would use the sewing method, don’t sew to often anymore but watching you, I can do some nice projects. Well done!

  42. I have been teaching my two boys how to sew since they were 8 and 10 years old. They even got their own sewing machines for Christmas one year. Some of the premier tailors in the world are men. Good on your husband! And thank you for such an outstanding tutorial. Can't wait to give these a try. <3

  43. I just found you and subbed, I love your rendition of Pottery Barn. I love Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel but the prices on so many things is redonculous lol. I love using the heat and bond tape, Ive made drapes with lining and all with that product. rtfs
