No Sew Burlap Table Runner

I realized this morning that I haven't posted on the blog in 2 weeks. In my free time, I've been working on a baby shower gift...and I'm excited to post about it, but I want to wait until after the baby shower. I finally finished that project today, so I moved on to another project that I've been thinking about. This stenciled burlap table runner.

I cut the burlap a couple feet longer than my table, pulled out a few strings to fray the edges, and painted the design using a Stampin' Up decor stencil.

I made it long enough to hang over the edge, but I think I actually like it without the overhang, so the stencil design is on top of the table instead of hanging off the side.

What do you think? Since this project is no sew, it would be very easy to trim the burlap and re-paint the stencil.

  1. I like it both ways! Maybe you could just overlap it in the middle if you want it short? Or consider painting another stencil in the middle on either side of the basket?

    Either way it's very cozy and pretty!
