DIY No Sew Burlap Table Runner


I have loved decorating our dining room this year for Spring. I've put up subway art, upcycled jars with spring flowers, made a spring wreath, and placed moss & rocks in glass jars with candles. Something though on our table was missing and I wasn't sure what it was. Well, the other day I was reading Chase the Star and she had put together a very simple no-sew table runner on her table. I knew immediately that I loved it and wanted to make one. I love cute, easy, & affordable!!

At Michael's craft store you can buy a roll of burlap, for table runners, for $12. But, if you have a 50% coupon like I did it's even better!! ;) I picked out some green ribbon that went along with the other spring colors I have going on in the dining room, got my glue gun, and got started!

First, I measured the right length of burlap for our table. Then began to hot glue the ribbon along the outer edge of the burlap.



For the corners, I wrapped the end piece over the side piece and hot glued it together. This ribbon has wire in it so it made a really nice crease.




It didn't take me long at all before I was completely done. I really love what this runner adds to our table. I'm SO happy with it!!



Thanks Chase the Star for the great idea!! While I still had the glue gun out and the burlap I decide to decorate a couple more jars that I put in our bedroom. Hee Hee!! They turned out cute too!
