Since I still wasn't going to make the table runner, I used these rolls of organza ribbon from Joann fabric. Remember those placemats you made in grammar school? I just weaved the pieces in and out.
Really my true inspiration was a new magazine I found in JoAnn called flower. You can find all the details on this beautiful creation at the website, including how to drill a stump of wood to hold it all together. Now that I definitely don't have time for! Happy Creating!
