In the past I had never really thought much about using burlap for decorating or anything for that matter, but more recently burlap has been popping up all over the wedding scene. After seeing so many different pictures, I have fallen in love with the rustic chic burlap idea. I have put together an inspiration board with ideas on how to dress it up to your desired look.
And if you are the DIY type, here are the directions to make your own burlap table runners from Style Me Pretty.
One bolt of 54-inch wide burlap (you can use less, but 21 runners took the full bolt)
Teal Blue Thread
1. Cut fabric in lengths of 14 feet, two inches.
2. Cut in half lengthwise so that each strip is 27 inches wide
3. Turn the ends and sides under one inch and hem
4. Stitch with a zig zag stitch (my mom used the largest zig zag, about a quarter of an inch) on her machine and chose satin thread)
5. Iron flat
