I've had a bolt of burlap for almost a month now with a million projects in mind and I finally got around to one last night. It couldn't have been easier and maybe took me 15 minutes from start to finish!
Pottery Barn (and everywhere else) has all kinds of cute burlap Christmas decorations and I especially like the look and texture of burlap table runners.
My table is 5 1/2 feet long so I made my runner just over 6 feet to have a little hang over each end. I wanted mine to be a little wider than usual so I can layer it with another runner if I want so I cut the piece in half (making it about 40" wide).
Burlap frays very easily so I used my serger to finish off the sides. If you don't have a serger you could sew a zig zag stitch near the edge, use some fray check, or just leave it as is!
That was it! All I had to do was put it on our dining room table.
I added my Pottery Barn (but purchased at Goodwill) hurricanes with some cinnamon pinecones from Michael's.
And a Christmas wreath from Target a few years ago. I need to make a trip back to Michael's for some more pinecones to fill in around the candle.
Since this project was so quick I had a little time to work on a second burlap project I'll post for you tomorrow!
