DIY Table Runners
This one-of-a-kind table runner was loom-woven with jute. The pom poms were handmade and placed throughout the table runner to give it even more dimension and character. The fun details – like the pops of color placed randomly and at varying widths, the tactile appearance and dimension that make you want to run your hand over it and the tassels along the ends – add such personality.
