We wanted to leave for Thanksgiving with this amazing table runner project that Kathryn Godwin created for us. If you’re in a pinch for an easy way to dress up your table for tomorrow, this is it. You can make it your own by mixing the rope with different yarn colors and playing with the shape, which makes for the perfect wedding DIY! After you’re done using it, you can repurpose them as coasters and pot trivets. Double winner. The beautiful floral centerpiece is by Springvine Design, all beautifully shot by Michael Finster of Blue Kite Photo:
– 3/8″ manila rope
– pom-pom makers
– hot glue gun
Trace circle shapes onto paper and cut out. Line edge of paper circle with line of hot glue. Apply section of rope. Continue step 2 & 3 as you coil your way into the circle. Cut end, and tuck into center of circle with a bead of hot glue on paper.
Trim the edge of the paper if any is showing around side of rope circle. Use mini pom-pom maker to create poms of alternating colors! Tape or glue pom-pom tails to the underside of the circle in alternating colors. Start at opposite sides to get the most event placement. Finished circles- you can vary the size of the circles, and also wrap yarn around the rope before gluing it to the circle for some variety & fun. Lay the circles on the table, and table together or use paper strips to glue them together. Or leave them separate and the small circles can be used for coasters at a later date!
