Let me start by saying I am not one of those people who has a stockpile of seasonal decor to display around my house. As wonderfully “Martha” as that sounds, the logistics of having decor for Easter, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s, and Halloween is just too much for me. Just getting Christmas stuff up wears me out. I do like easy, low commitment crafts that might use seasonal colors however. This table runner was a quick and inexpensive way for me feel a little “Springy”.

I love the colors in our kitchen rug and decided to use the teal and lime combo for my table runner. Our trip to IKEA not only outfitted our new office and a paint project, it also supplied the basic runner for this project. I picked up ribbon and buttons at Hobby Lobby.

In theory I liked the idea of using a lot of buttons. After seeing it all laid out, it looked a little too kitchy for our formal dining room. I decided to stick with just the ribbon and the two ornate green buttons. They were my favorites anyway.

1. Lay out your design.
2. Using a low temp gun, hot glue ribbon using small amounts of glue to secure to the runner.
3. Wrap ribbon around the edges and glue down.
4. Hot glue buttons….AND done! Easy enough, right?
