Christmas Table Runner with Ribbon

A friend at work has such a talent for decorating our office so beautifully, especially for holidays! She had a really cute Christmas table runner on a table in the entrance of our main office. She had found it at a local hobby store several years ago. I liked it so much, I decided to make a similar one for my home for the holidays.

I purchased the ribbon and thread at Wal-Mart.

I used 18" wide burlap that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. This is great for a runner as the sides are selvaged so you don't have to worry about sewing the longer edge.  I folded the ends up in a triangle and then pressed it so that it would be more secure. Then I sewed the edges to make a point.

I cut my ribbon 20 inches long so it would wrap under the long edge of the runner. Then I decided on the placement and sewed the ribbon in place.

I made red and white tassels by wrapping a strand of red and a strand of white together around a card. I tied one end of each tassel, then wrapped the tassels with cute red and white ribbon. I trimmed the ends and hand-sewed the tassels to the ends of my table runner.

I love the red and white colors and combinations of ribbons, especially the santa ribbon! 

Enjoy the holidays and keep surfing, pinning, and creating!
