Finished up my burlap table runner last night! YAY! This was way more cost effective to DIY then to buy… So I decided to make my first HOW To Article and share with you my little secret on a more cost effective and easy DIY burlap table runner…


Supplies:


Rotary Cutter or Scissors


Cutting Mat (Optional)


Burlap


Measuring Tape


I got my burlap from save-on-crafts I used the Natural and Moss Green Jute Burlap Roll 10 yards (30 foot) x 14" wide that's on sale for $11...





Since the rolls are 30' I decided to make each runner 10' so I would get 3 out of each roll... These would fit the 6' rectangular tables. For our few 8' table I to waste some burlap and cut them 12' long so I was only able to get 2 out of them... That's less than $4 a runner!


Here is a nice tip on cutting burlap... When you measure out where you want to cut the runner off pull out the string where your 10' mark would be... Here is a picture to better demonstrate...

When you pull the string out it gives you a guideline to follow so you cut straigt :) and so that your burlap does not fray!


The best part about this burlap is that they are the perfect width so no hemming at all! Such a fast and easy DIY for anyone!


Hope you all enjoy! Here are all the ones I did last night! The skinny ones are going to be my chair sashes!
