What is your wedding theme? Since they are canvas, you could attach lace on the ends for a rustic look, that but may not fit into your theme.

regit45:  I second the lace if it fits your theme… Or maybe some long tassels or contrasting fabric band? you could try splitting them into two table runers with an open space in the middle for your centerpieces too if that would work with your decor…

regit45: Two options- depending on how the ends are finished:

-If the ends are pointed or finished with trim, split them in the middle and insert another piece of coordinating fabric- somthing that would look good under the centerpieces.

– If the ends are plain -add extra fabric at the ends- making them pointed or adding trim will make it look intentional.

A third option if you have a fairly substantial centerpiece or can add a fair sized tray or mirror as a base to the centerpiece:

-just split the runner in half , spread the two ends the necessary distance apart and place the tray or mirror to cover the ends. The tray or mirror needs to be large enough to completely cover the ends of the runner.
