DIY FIVE MINUTE BURLAP TABLE RUNNER
















Burlap Table Runner






After making my burlap and grapevine wreaths here, I really wanted a burlap table runner to use out on the veranda. Everything I found was very pricy and I didn't want to spend a lot of money for something to be used outside. After finding a roll of burlap at Lowe's for under ten dollars I knew what to do. The width of the burlap was exactly the width of my table and I really didn't want to cut it, so I rolled out the amount needed for the length of the table and added the overhang times two before cutting. Placing the length of burlap on the table I then folded it in half. After getting the seam straight I just pressed down on the burlap for a finished look. No need to iron, and this took all of five minutes. Now I'm ready to decorate my tabletop for fall.

I'm very pleased with my table runner for a rustic fall look. I will enjoy this look now and later for Thanksgiving I will use a tablecloth with the burlap as a topper. Hope you like my easy peasy idea.

  7. I would never have thought to look for burlap at Lowe's. I get mine at Hobby Lobby but will check to see if our store has it. Your runner looks very nice on the table with all the pretty things on it. Burlap seems to go with just about anything whether plain or fancy. Your method of making the runner is easy but looks great.------------ Shannon

  8. Love it indeed! Did you find your haunted house at T.J's also? couldn't resist buying it. Love how you worked it into your vignette. I too love the rustic yet charming look of burlap. Thinking I need a roll from Lowes.
