Burlap Roll For Table Runners and More!
One of the things you will find on Pinterest this year are things made with burlap. I have always been a big fan of burlap and have even covered my bench at home with it a few years ago. Last year, I made a Thanksgiving burlap runner, and this year I wanted to make some things for Christmas. I was excited to have been chosen to review it.
The Burlap Roll that I received is made for table runners. However, with all the ideas dancing in my head, I didn’t know what to start with. The burlap roll is 12 inches wide by 10 yards long. It says it can make 3-5 table runners depending on the size of your table of course. I was glad to find out that the edges are sewn so there will be no raveling.
The burlap roll isn’t cheap stuff. It is high density fabric and you can tell just by the feel of it. It isn’t hard to make something with burlap. Some people say that you can’t paint on it, but that is farthest from the truth. I used a stencil and some acrylic paint. The paint didn’t run and it held up in the washer. I used a sponge brush to paint on the stencil and my ideas came out beautifully.
It was easy to make the pillow because I just decided on a size, painted on my letters or Santa, then sewed up the two sides, stuffed it with some pillow stuffing and sewed up the third size. I just wrapped it around, so there was only three sides to sew.
On the hanging items, I chose how big I wanted it to be, folded the one end over a dowel, stenciled on my pattern and that was it. I chose to place it over a piece of fabric to give it that extra pizazz and added a little green and I was done! By the way, these make great Christmas gifts for teachers, friends, hostesses, etc.
You can buy the burlap roll on Amazon for the very good price of $19.99. You don’t even have to do anything with it, just lay it across your table, or use it as a dresser scarf for a rustic look throughout your home.
