Most of you already know this but for those of you that don’t Burlap is one of my favorite materials to decorate with, I just love the DIY Burlap and Lace Table Runner1 300x220 DIY Burlap and Lace Table Runnerlook that you get with burlap textiles and decorative accessories. Not to mention Burlap is a very inexpensive way to add a high class look to your home. With that being said, I want to share a quick and easy Burlap and Lace Table Runner Tutorial. I was able to complete this project in less than 45 minutes from start to finish and was so happy with the way it looks. If you are a fan of burlap and are looking for a new project, this is definitely one to try.

Here is what you will need:

  • Burlap (I purchased a 2 yard piece of Burlap fabric from Michaels) It was $9.99 but with a 40% off coupon I only paid $6.00
  • Lace Bias Tape (I purchased 2 packs from Hancock Fabric)
  • Ruffled Lace Trim (I purchased 1 yard from Hancock Fabric)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Iron

Step 1: Iron Burlap and Lace Bias Tape.  Start by ironing your burlap. This will get out any of the fold lines and wrinkles, if you don’t do this first you may end up measuring incorrectly. Next unfold your Lace Bias Tape and iron the fold lines so that it lays flat.

Step 2: Measure the length and width of your table runner. I wanted my table runner to be 15″ wide so I started by measuring 15″ over and making a line then I would skip down about 10″ and measure  again. I did this until I got all the way to the bottom of the fabric.

Then I took a yard stick and connected the lines to make one long straight line. I did it that way because it’s easy to move burlap due to its woven texture, which can cause you to make an uneven line (I thought it was better to take the extra time than to risk making an uneven line).

I purchased a 2 yard piece of burlap from Michaels and it just so happened the the length of the fabric was the perfect length so I didn’t have to make any cuts to get the appropriate length for my table runner; however if your fabric is to long then you should follow the step above to measure  and mark the correct length.

Step 3: Cut your fabric. Take your scissors and cut along the line. Try to stay between two pieces of thread, as it will help you to keep your fabric from unwinding and becoming uneven.

 Step 4: Apply Fray Check. Apply Fray check to all sides to keep the thread from unwinding. Cut off any extra threads that have already unwound

Step 5: Lay your Lace Bias Tape on the edge of  one side of your burlap. To help keep the Lace in place I quickly ironed the lace

Step 6: Glue in place. Using a hot glue gun begin gluing the lace in place. I made a glue line on the inside and outside edge of the lace.

Step 7: After gluing the lace bias tape down both of the long sides of the burlap measure and cut your ruffled lace so that it fits along the short edges of the burlap and then glue in place with your hot glue gun.
