Creations, Jazzing up a Table Runner

Beach themes and burlap are the furthest things from everyone’s mind as we are all waiting for crisp fall air


So pretend that starfish is a pumpkin, okay?

This is a  quick way to change up a table runner and give it more width and a little accent…

Wide contrasting burlap ribbon and a few dots of glue…

My kitchen island has an elevated eating bar at the end

I used this widened runner to tie the 2 surfaces together for unity

I didn’t have quite enough ribbon to go the full length so I left each end like this for interest

Scattered shells on netting line the center, handy for covering up the wrinkles that wouldn’t iron out 😳

For storage, I loosely rolled the runner to keep it fresh for next time

    Jenna, I love this runner on your island and how it spills over with the burlap pumpkins. What a great way to embrace the fall season, even though we still have more summer ahead of us! Great colors, especially at the beach.
    Happy weekend, RT…………

    Clever you, Jenna, and kudos for blending the seasons. I’m transitioning slowly as I’m not ready for summer to be over. In Maine, it’s a short season.
