Table Runner

A while back I saw this really awesome table runner at
Pottery Barn


But it was a bit out of my budget.

So I was "inspired" to create my own
(if inspired means completely copy theirs)



For the tassels I just unraveled the edges of the burlap until I had enough string like pieces.


Once I cut them all to the same length I just folded it in half,
 took another piece of string and tied it in the middle to secure.


Then I just took a very long piece of the string and wrapped it over and over around the top to form a ball.



Hemmed the sides and stitched on the tassels. 
Done!

Although now looking at these pictures
I think I need to trim the tassels.
PB's are a bit more dainty.

Nothing a pair of scissors can't fix!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend

I love it !! It came out beautiful. I bet for a fraction of the price. Tassels are cute too.

thanks for stopping by my etsy boutique! I love the silver compote too. I have several and I use one of them to hold loose jewelry on an old dresser. I try to only sell things that I would love to have or use in our home. Your words are always encouraging. blessings
