This is a simple burlap table runner that I made for my coffee table, but it could be made to any size for any table. For the borders, I used a simple white netting material which gave it a real elegant touch. I chose yellow for the stitching because I felt it went really well with the natural tones of the fabric. To do this project, you will need burlap, white netting material, yarn or cross stitching thread, scissors, a cross stitch needle, and a hot glue gun. This project took me about an hour, the majority of it being the hand-sewing.
Our first DIY project featured last week were DIY burlap flowers – later we will be bringing you instructions on how to make a small runner. Here is a preview, we will also be uploading a video to our YouTube channel later:
Slight intro: these crafts are made by Melody, who will be coming up with inventive ideas on different projects that can be done using our burlap fabric. If you have any ideas of what you’d like to see made, post on our Facebook wall and we’ll be glad to mention the idea to her! We hope to be rolling out some video look-ins on these DIY tutorials too!

This is the finished product
These are easy to make, and require no hot gluing or sewing, so even young kids could make them. It took me about 15 minutes to make each one.

We love getting e-mails from people who have used our products to make their wedding extra special. Today we got an e-mail from Heather:
“I bought burlap from you this past summer for my rustic wedding. I just wanted to let you know it worked perfectly! I used the 14 inch roll for my table runners, 6 inch roll for decorations such as marking reserved seats etc, the 40 inch roll as a aisle runner and the 2 inch roll to decorate my invitations. The entire day was perfect and I just wanted to thank you for providing me with such great burlap at an affordable price!
Here are a few pics for your blog if you are interested!!”
