Burlap Runner

Remember all that burlap I bought a couple weeks ago for my frame?  Well I have a ton left.  Luckily, I think it’s useful for all sorts of things.  I have framed it,  painted on it, and now, a table runner.

I started to fold and pin the edges to hem it but once I had part of it pinned, I realized that it lost some of it’s rustic appeal so it unpinned it and steamed it back flat.  It was also wayyyy easier.  All I did to make this runner was to measure and cut to fit how I wanted it to.  I put it on our antiqued buffet so the ragged edges really adds to the feel of the buffet. Super easy and super cheap.  The burlap I used for this probably cost about $2.00.  I may eventually add ribbon or some contrasting stitches for fun, but for now it sits like this:

I plan on making some place mats with the rest but here is some other burlap inspiration I found:

ruffle wreath

Jones Design Company


pillows from The Tarnished Crown

Burlap covered lampshades from Living with Lindsey

The possibilities are endless.  Have I mentioned how crazy cheap and awesome burlap is?  I’d love to hear about your burlap projects!
