How to Make a Burlap Table Runner

Editor’s Note: This project, which I made earlier this year, is very popular on Mom Home Guide and would be a great fall craft! So I am reposting this post on how to make a burlap table runner. Maybe I will make a new fall-themed burlap table runner soon! I will share it on the blog if I do!

I am so excited — today I am guest posting for the mom blog, 5MinutesforMom! This Canadian mom blog is a great place for moms and features everything from DIY and craft tutorials, to giveaways to recipes.

For 5MinutesforMom, I wrote about a very fun DIY craft I did for my home’s dining table. I’ve been noticing that burlap decor is everywhere these days, from stenciled burlap to painted burlap, so I decided to do a burlap craft project of my own.

DIY Fringed Burlap Table Runner

My home’s dining table is very long, so it’s been difficult to find an inexpensive table runner for it! So, I bought some burlap, ribbon and felt craft buttons from my local craft store and decided to make an embellished table runner for my table.

I sewed on craft felt buttons and ribbon to embellish my homemade table runner.

I also fringed the table runner, which while being a fairly tedious and very messy craft, was also quite therapeutic!

Fringing my burlap table runner turned out to be a messy process!
