DIY Table Runner Centerpiece

Eucalyptus is a favorite among botanicals when it comes to creating runners and garlands. While any greenery is just as beautiful as the next, the one we really can’t get enough of is eucalyptus. Whether it’s fresh, preserved or faux, incorporating them to your arrangements brings the look to a whole new level.

For our table runner, we are using faux eucalyptus leaves. They come in different shapes and varieties, from silver dollar and true blue spiral eucalyptus to seeded and eucalyptus parvi. We are going to mix silver dollar and parvi for volume and texture.

FLORAL SUPPLIES AND TOOLS NEEDED

 

STEP 1: STEM THE SOLA WOOD FLOWERS

Add hot glue at the tip of the wire then carefully push into the base of the flower. You may also squeeze a dab of glue to the underside of the bloom then poke through using the wire. Let the glue dry and make sure the flower is firmly attached to the stem.

STEP 2: BUILD THE GREENERY BASE

Unroll the eucalyptus garlands and straighten the vines. Fluff the leaves and separate the knotted stems if there are.

Add volume by adding a layer of garland. We are using two types of eucalyptus, the Silver Dollar and Parvi.

Tie the garlands together. You now have a full and thick greenery runner. 

STEP 3: ADD FLOWERS TO THE GREENERY

Once you have the greenery set, tie the sola wood flowers to the garland.

Equally distribute the colors and styles of the sola wood flowers. 

STEP 4: SET THE GARLAND

Drape the Sola Wood Flower runner down the middle of the table to create a stunning centerpiece.
