No Sew Burlap Table Runner

Posted by on Apr 15, 2013 in burlap, crafts, dining room | 29 comments

I LOVE the look of burlap.

Great texture.

Beautiful color.

Rustic look.

It doesn’t get any better than burlap.

But, as for sewing with it. . .

NO Thank You!

All of that great texture starts flying through the air. . .

and in my nose!

Yet, I really wanted a burlap runner for my dining room table.

So, I had to think of another way.

Here is how to make a DIY No Sew Burlap Table Runner.

I cut 3 pieces of burlap to the length that I wanted the runner to be.

  1. So simple yet so cute!! I love your topiaries, too!

  2. So pretty!

  3. Love this! I just happen to have some bleached burlap. Can’t wait to start!


  4. You had me at “no sew.” šŸ™‚ Love this idea!

  5. Great idea…..I love Burlap

  6. Your runner is great, wonderful idea to use the glue and the ribbon. No sew is the best when it comes to burlap. Looks so nice on your table with your topiarys, awesome gal. Your dining room looks so peaceful.
    When I was making the burlap runners last year I had to use fabric glue and hand sew the ruffled ends on. My sewing machine wanted nothing to do with burlap. Would have been much quicker without having to hand sew but it was a good reason to sit and relax as I sewed the ruffles on. Haven’t made one since Christmas time, about time to design a new one possibly using one of my wonderful vintage tablecloths. At least now I can get some use of all the really nice ones I have. I use one of the runners with parts of a tablecloth (for the ruffles) on top of our chifarobe in our room. Happy days Glad you shared this project with us.

  7. Great idea. I love the finished project. I sort of like the extra texture of the lines where you attached them together. Looks great.

  8. Perfect for me…I’m not a sewing kind of girl! So simple and lovely!

  9. seriously so easy! love the trees as centerpiece too

  10. I love this. I think I will try to use the glue and make a ruffle one.

  14. Your so smart making the runner that way, it looks wonderful… now, are those real little trees on the table & where did you find those adorable pots?

  15. I am all about no-sew whenever possible! Thanks for linking up at Whatever Goes Wednesday. We’ll be highlighting your table runner tomorrow, so come by and take a look!

  16. Now that’s clever! No sew is always the best as the projects can be completed in no time at all.

  17. You’re right. that was a simple project. I bet I can use it for some other heavy fabric I have. Thanks.

  18. Cute idea! I am thinking of doing this with a few white individual pots of succulents on my coffee table. Thanks for the idea! šŸ™‚

  25. Such a perfect classic look! Love it! XO, Aimee

  26. Looks great, I have that burlap ribbon, too. Did you know that Michael’s also carries rolls of burlap in the exact width of a table runner? I’ve bought it and used pieces of it for table runners ~ I have a really long farmhouse table that needs special attention when it comes to runners. They carry it in the bridal section. I even stenciled mine and French-ified it a bit! I love the myrtle topiaries, went looking at a local greenhouse for some today. Yours are the perfect size! Wherever did you find them? Found you through Savvy Southern Style’s party today!
