How to make a Burlap and Ribbon Runner
You start getting your burlap fabric to what you want your table runner measures. I started with a piece of burlap that was 5 1/2 feet long by 10” wide. You can pick whatever width you’d like your burlap table runner to be.
Then I cut slits in the burlap every 2.5” down the length of the burlap runner. You want to do that for both sides of the fabric.
I made the slits just wide enough to weave the chevron ribbon through it. I found that folding the burlap to cut made it quick and easy.
Then it’s time to put the ribbon through. I started on the bottom side of the burlap and wove the ribbon through the first slit to the top. Then the next slit over I pushed the ribbon down to the bottom side. I repeated the process until I got to the end.
On the bottom side of the fabric, I tied off the ribbon by tying it into a knot so it wouldn’t slide through.
Customize Your Table Runner
You can so easily customize your table runner for different seasons or events. A cute Christmas ribbon for the holidays. A lace ribbon for weddings would be beautiful. Pick whatever ribbon suits your home decor or your event.
Such a fun and easy Spring craft that made for the perfect base for my Spring tablescape.

Maryann, this is such a fun and pretty idea! Simple and inexpensive but perfect to add a bright pop of color to a Springtime table!
Would you be able to make me a burlap runner with ribbon like shown in the Pinterest post? If so, how much would you charge?
My 15yo was tickled this morning when I showed this to her. I found this page/project while searching pinterest for table runner ideas 🙂 Thank you for sharing!
For burlap prints any specific burlap in terms of thickness should be used? Please reply
GORGEOUS! It’s a perfect project.
Did you use fabric glue at the ends of the Chevron ribbon to adhere to the burlap or maybe tie knots in the ribbon?
Linda – I just tied off each end with a double-knot.
