How To Make a Striking Table Runner With Ribbon

Today, I'm sharing one of my top secret table styling tips. This is one of my favorites because it's quick, simple, inexpensive, and looks amazing. All you need to make your holiday table look extra special this year is a couple spools of ribbon (just the cheap stuff, no wire edges required) and a roll of duct tape to create a bold, eye-catching Ribbon Table Runner.  

The best thing about this project is that it is extremely versatile. You can use any color or patterned ribbon that complements your dinnerware. In this example, I used plain, red velvet ribbon from the clearance aisle.

To create the ribbon runner, start by placing a strip of ribbon down the middle of the table with a few inches of extra length on each end. Secure the ribbon with small pieces of duct tape placed under the table top. Repeat this process until you have a total of five, evenly spaced strips in place. 

Once the strips are all in place, tuck the loose ends up under the apron and secure with tape.

Later on this week, I'll be sharing another simple, but fantastic holiday decor project using simple wire edged ribbon. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. This is one of the most beautiful and elegant tablerunners I have ever laid eyes on. I can't wait to decorate my table for Christmas! Can you please tell me where you purchased the white antlers for your centerpiece?

    1. Hi Jane, thank you! My neighbor gave me the the antlers. I painted them and added a little glitter with Krylon Glitter Blast Spray. Happy Holidays!

  2. LOVE THIS! It's one of those, "Why didn't I think of that?" Thanks for the inspiration.
