1.5-inch-wide ribbon (in various colors and fabrics)
Tape or thumbtacks (to secure to surface)
Cut the ribbon into 22-inch long pieces; for every 10 inches, you will need 14 pieces of ribbon. Cut the twine to your desired length, leaving a little extra on the ends for tying. (Tip: Keep slack on the length of the twine so that it drapes nicely along the edge of your table.)
Tie each ribbon, alternating colors with a slip knot or by simply tying the ribbon onto the twine with a regular knot. Repeat until all the ribbon is used.
Secure the ends with tape or thumbtacks.
