Joy Table Runner for the Christmas Table…

Hey there…just a quick post today as I am feverishly working on final Christmas decor touches in my dining room. Thank goodness the rest of the house is done!  This year, I have decided to go with a rustic touch in my decorations.  I am showing you a sneak peek of my DIY table runner project.  You can read the full post on Friday.  :)

In the dining room, I am using natural elements like branches, berries, pinecones and greenery.  The main colors are red and beige.  Yesterday I decided I wanted to use some burlap elements on the dining room table.  I had some creamy white burlap and natural jute burlap on hand.

The dining room is coming together nicely – if I say so myself :)  It is the last room – and then I am done with the decorating!
