Let’s say you love burlap table runners and dream of having them at your wedding, but you don’t want to shell out the extra money to buy one for each individual table. Perhaps you are feeling a little crafty and want to make one yourself, or you’re already married and want to spruce up the love nest with a newly monogrammed table runner. Well, you’re in for a special treat today because this is one easy-to-DIY burlap table runner that you will absolutely love – and you can make it in 10 minutes flat (leaving you plenty of time to tackle these doily vases, too!). This costs less than any burlap runners we’ve seen AND you can make it in 3 easy steps with NO SEWING required! We knew you’d love this one! So… let’s get started!
We spotted this DIY via A Very Blessed Nest (a lovely blog with fun ideas!) and we added a few alternatives for a twist.
- burlap (find it at a craft store like Joann’s for around $4 a yard)
- iron on monograms (find yours at Hobby Lobby)
1. Cut lengthwise
2. Pull strings on the sides to give it a fringed look
3. Iron on the monogram
Optional items we added:
-Add lace! Use a glue gun to apply lace trim right before the fraying begins. It will add a touch of shabby chic and can also incorporate your wedding colors (if you wish). We spotted these amazing trims to jump-start your creativity:
- Add bling! Add rhinestones to dazzle up your ironed monogram.
Have fun + send us pictures so we can share with our readers! We’d love to see your work! In fact, I’ll be making my own and adding lace, so stay tuned for photos. :) ♥
