How to DIY a Fall Table Runner
Prepare the Base
Cut your wire to your preferred length, plus a couple of inches. This leaves room to wrap the wire around itself later. The wire will serve as the base of your runner.
Decide on the number of puffs you want and mark them on the wire, ensuring even spacing. Use the pipe cleaners to secure each marking, including both ends.
Make the Deco Mesh Puffs
Roll out your deco mesh and determine the size of each puff. Mark the length of each puff on the mesh.
Gather and pinch the ends of three deco meshes together and connect them to one end of your wire base. Use pipe cleaners to tie down the gathered deco mesh at each marking.
Embellish with Ribbons and Berries
Select three different ribbons and white berry twigs for embellishments.
For each gathered spot on the runner, attach one piece of each ribbon and two berry twigs using pipe cleaners.
Cut ribbon pieces to the desired length, excluding the ends. Secure the ribbons first, then add the berry twigs. Wrap the remaining ends of the pipe cleaners to the underside of the runner.
Cut the ends of the ribbon to your liking (consider fishtails for a decorative touch).
Fluff out the deco mesh and ribbons, ensuring the wire base is straight.
Bend the berry twigs where needed for added dimension.
