I have a fun and super easy project for you today! This sweet Lace and Burlap Runner is a perfect addition to your table – it’s nice and neutral and has pretty little ruffles on each end that you can customize to match your colors and decor!
How to Make the Burlap and Lace Table Runner
- Burlap Runner – or burlap fabric 11″ wide by the length you want for your table – mine is 66″ long
- 4 different types of lace, 2 yards each (Mine is from The Ribbon Retreat)
- Pom Pom Trim – 4 yards (Ribbon Retreat too!)
- Fabric for ruffles – you need 2 pieces 22″ x 4″ and 2 pieces 22″ x 6″
Begin by cutting your burlap to the length you want. These purchased runners are sold lots of places and are super easy to use. The ends are finished so there’s a lot less mess!
Lay out your lace strips in the order you like best and begin sewing it on. Mine are spaced about 1 1/2″ apart.
Tip: You can use Washi Tape as a guide for your edges. This will keep your lace nice and straight. And look cute at the same time – always a bonus.
Continue until all your lace strips are sewn on.
For the pom pom trim, lay the trim under the edge of the runner and sew in place down each long side.
Now if you don’t want to do the ruffles you can finish off your runner here – it’s so pretty already! All you’d need to do is hem each short end. I just love the extra color the fabric adds though.
For each of your ruffle pieces hem the two short sides and the bottom edge. Sew a gathering stitch along the top edges.
Line up the ruffles along the gathered edges and layer the short ruffle on top. Place the ruffles right sides together with the short side of the runner. Sew in place.
Flip the ruffle down and fold the seam up towards the runner. Sew about 3/8″ inside the seam on the runner side, sewing the seam to the back.
Press your runner – you might want to use a pressing cloth to protect your lace and pom pom trim. And that’s all there is too it!
Now you can add it to your table or a buffet! (Cute Pom Pom flowers are optional but highly recommended.) :)
I just love the contrast of that lace with the burlap!
I hope you give it a try!
This looks a great project! How have you attached the pompon flowers to their ‘stalks’?
