So this seriously was the cheapest project I have done. So we have a local Cal Ranch store in our area that sells lots of different farm/home diy type stuff. I found a while ago they sell old coffee burlap bags for a few dollars each.I bought a few a while back to make some things with them just not sure at the time what to make with them. So when I needed to up my spring decor it was the perfect time to make a burlap runner.
I found some online at amazon if you don’t have any local Cal Ranch stores that sell them.

Making Your Cheap Burlap Runner from Old Coffee Burlap bag
Take the old coffee bag and cut off the back or front side depending on if you want the logo or not 🙂 Try to cut it as straight as you can It will help for the later steps.
Note: when cutting try and keep it on the table if you get burlap on your clothes the fibers are tricky and before you know it you are itching like crazy.
Now that you have the back piece cut out you will want to fold it and cut it in half. You will want to fold it so its smaller width wise. I held it tight and cut it down the side.
Sew the two end pieces togeather so it makes a long runner. I have seen short table runners becoming more and more popular so if you want can just use one for a short burlap table runner.
Just sew around the whole thing to keep it from falling apart.
Cut and even it out to make it straight as possible.
Sew around the edge to keep it from fraying a lot.
Iron it down so it’s flat.You will also have to iron down the seam where you sewed it togeather. Burlap doesn’t like to stay flat so ironing it flat will help so it doesn’t pop up.
Now Add The Burlap Runner to your table.
I seriously think I made this in 15 mins. Now that I have my table all put togeather I love it. I hope you do too!
