DIY Burlap Table Runner

Create your own table runner in just a few minutes with this easy tutorial. It's great for decorating & gifting!
You may recall seeing this burlap table runner from Pottery Barn.  Unfortunately, it is no longer available, however, it is so easy to recreate!  As you know, I love burlap for Fall.  It provides a rustic, yet soft element for Fall decor.
Last year I saved myself $40 and decided to create my own.  It has been a great Spring and Fall staple for our dining table, kitchen countertop when we are serving from there, mantle, piano and more.  I love it so much, I have decided to gift a few to dear friends.
The details:
To create your own, purchase 2.5 yards of burlap {90″ in length} in the desired color.
Pull one thick thread at your desired width {I did 2′}.  It creates an easy guide to cut a straight line.  Cut.
Pull a thread, one at a time, to fray the edges on all 4 sides.
I pulled 5 threads on each side to achieve this look:
If needed, iron and store in a roll to prevent wrinkles.
I hope they enjoy their runners as much as I do mine! My other favorite burlap projects are a burlap vase, burlap flag banner, and burlap frame.
To save this project for later, PIN it here:
