I spent about 50 man hours making the flower petal aisle runner. I hand dyed 22,000 rose petals and it’s 70 feet long. Then I made 20 table numbers with wood supplies from Hobby Lobby. They have two coats if gold glitter and a final coat of mod podge so there isn’t glitter everywhere. Does anyone have any ideas how I can make the aisle runner no slip?

you could try getting clear silicone caulk at the hardware store and putting strips of it on the back of the runner, then let dry.
Or, get some of the non-skid drawer liner stuff or the rolls of nonskid stuff you put on the back of area rugs and cut to size and glue on the back.
ETA: both look awesome!!

Great job! Both the numbers and the aisle runner look amazing!
We use these http://www.target.com/p/non-slip-rug-pad-cream/-/A-13719218 for our rugs. Not sure if it will work for your runner because you would have to attach it somehow.

stephanie.beutke: I DIY my aisle runner much like you! Mine was in a semi-indoor venue (tent-covered patio) so I didn’t want it to blow away. I glued large aquarium stone on the edge of the underside of the runner. They are the stone with the rounded tops and flat bottoms. It weighed it down and no one slipped. For reference, the runner was on concrete.

emstar168: You can buy a non slip runner underlay. Generally they are 2×8″ for about $12. You just lay it on the floor and place your runner on top. There is no gluing or otherwise attaching needed.

Great ideas thanks! It’s going to be on this wood floor so I cant really tape anything either.

The numbers are wooden numbers that I hot glued to wooden bases all from hobby lobby. Then I mod podged 2 layers of gold glitter to them and put a final layer of mod podge on top so the glitter isn’t falling off all over. It was easy but time consuming and messy.
