No Sew Burlap Table Runner

Hello and happy Wednesday! Last week when I shared our Fall Home Tour you may have noticed something new on our table. For the first time ever I have a table runner--I feel so classy! :)

I saw several really pretty ones at Homegoods but they were all around $13 and I realized that I already had everything I needed to make one. This is probably the most simple tutorial you'll ever read!

I had a roll of 18" burlap that I used for Tristan's train party that I got at Walmart in the Wedding section for $7. You can also find it at Hobby Lobby (use their 40% any one item coupon!)


I like that the edges are already sealed, making it perfect to use as a table runner.

I cut off the excess on each end to make it the perfect length for my table, but needed something to hide the raw edges and dress it up a little.

I had some scraps from a placemat that I cut up to make a pumpkin pillow (tutorial soon to come!) that worked perfectly for this. I attached the material using hot glue, making sure that the pretty finished side was on the outside.

I didn't get a picture of the back, but all I did was use hot glue to make a hem before gluing it on to the burlap.

I did the same thing for the edge that wasn't already hemmed as you can see on the left.

And there you have it--the quickest, most simple tutorial ever! It only took a few minutes and materials I had laying around to create my very first table runner. And of course because it's burlap, I love it!

You could also use just plain scrap material or even some pretty ribbon on the ends. I think we're always going to have a table runner now, it just makes the table look so pretty!

I'll be back next week with a few more things that I made to decorate for fall. Have a great week everyone!

Linking up to these awesome parties!


  1. No sew? Burlap? You're throwing around all my favorite words! I'm loving this project!

    I'm hosting a link party on my blog and we'd love for you to come by and link up with us!

  2. You can conjointly build a router table fence that has clamps engineered into it to secure it to the table. Add further options to your router table like a router fence vacuum.


I appreciate all of your wonderful comments :)
