I keep a stock pile of ribbon on hand for no particular reason. All sizes, colors, and patterns are welcome to hang in my stash. Ribbon is one of those craft supplies that calls to you from the shelves in the store. Even if you don’t need any at the moment, you can usually convince yourself that you will eventually. (Is that just me?)
This weekend I taught a little craft workshop at West Elm St. Louis. We made ribbon table runners that are perfect for an outdoor party or special occasions. I saw this picture on Pinterest where one had been used on long tables for wedding decor. The different ribbon colors looked gorgeous together, and different colors could easily be personalized to match your tableware or theme for a party. This is a project that even the rookie crafter could tackle. It costs about $20 to make a table runner large enough for a 72 inch table. If making for a smaller table, the cost would be less since you wouldn’t need as much ribbon.
